Brock Boeser leads Vancouver with nine goals, Quinn Hughes has 16 assists and Elias Pettersson has 38 shots on goal.

The Flames are 2-6 in their last 8 road games and 0-5 in their last 5 Thursday games. The Canucks are 5-2 in their last 7 home games and 0-5 in their last 5 overall. The under is 3-1-1 in Flames last 5 road games. The over is 11-5-1 in Canucks last 17 Thursday games. The Flames are 5-1 in the last 6 meetings. The favorite is 39-19 in the last 58 meetings. The over is 10-4 in the last 14 meetings.
The Calgary Flames have been hit or miss this season and haven't had much success stringing wins together, but they're much better than what the Canucks have going on right now. The Vancouver Canucks have not only lost five straight, but their goalies haven't been good and they've been outscored by the Flames 8-2 in the last two meetings. Hard not to side with the Flames and the rather cheap price.
