The Vancouver Canucks and Vegas Golden Knights meet Tuesday in game two of the NHL West Second Round at the Rogers Place.    

The Vancouver Canucks need a bounce back performance to even up this series at 1-1. The Vancouver Canucks are averaging 3.09 goals per game and are scoring on 25.6 percent of their power play opportunities. Bo Horvat leads Vancouver with six goals, Quinn Hughes has nine assists and JT Miller has 26 shots on goal. Defensively, the Vancouver Canucks are allowing 2.82 goals per game and are killing 80 percent of their opponents power plays. Jacob Markstrom has given up 30 goals on 384 shots faced and Thatcher Demko has allowed zero goals on five shots.

The Vegas Golden Knights look for another strong performance to take a quick 2-0 series lead. The Vegas Golden Knights are averaging 3.89 goals per game and are scoring on 20.8 percent of their power play opportunities. Mark Stone leads Vegas with five goals, Reilly Smith has six assists and Nate Schmidt has 34 shots on goal. Defensively, the Vegas Golden Knights are allowing 2.33 goals per game and are killing 87 percent of their opponents power plays.

The Canucks are 6-2 in their last 8 games playing on 1 days rest, 7-3 in their last 10 games as an underdog and 7-3 in their last 10 overall. The Golden Knights are 16-5 in their last 21 games as a favorite, 19-7 in their last 26 games following a win and 22-6 in their last 28 overall. The over is 20-9-1 in Canucks last 30 overall. The Canucks are 1-5 in the last 6 meetings in Vegas and 1-5 in the last 6 meetings.

It's intriguing to get a desperate team that's down 0-1 in the series at these prices, especially with how much offensive success the Vancouver Canucks have had up to this point. However, the Vegas Golden Knights have been the team to beat since joining the bubble and they've done nothing to remove that title, as they currently sit as the favorites to win the Cup. The Golden Knights are getting whatever they want offensively and are coming off a 5-0 shutout win in game one. The Golden Knights have won eight of the last 10 meetings against the Canucks and six of those eight wins were decided by two or more goals.

Give me the Golden Knights and the PL for max value.
