The Vancouver Canucks and Ottawa Senators meet Wednesday in NHL action at the Canadian Tire Centre.
The Vancouver Canucks look for a win after winning five of their last six games. The Vancouver Canucks are averaging 2.7 goals per game and are scoring on 20.4 percent of their power play opportunities. Brock Boeser leads Vancouver with 14 goals, Quinn Hughes has 23 assists and Bo Horvat has 76 shots on goal. Defensively, the Vancouver Canucks are allowing 3.2 goals per game and are killing 80.9 percent of their opponents power plays. Braden Holtby has given up 39 goals on 366 shots faced while Thatcher Demko has given up 57 goals on 709 shots.
The Ottawa Senators need a win after losing six of their last eight games. The Ottawa Senators are averaging 2.6 goals per game and are scoring on 15 percent of their power play opportunities. Brady Tkachuk leads Ottawa with 11 goals, Thomas Chabot has 16 assists and Drake Batherson has 71 shots on goal. Defensively, the Ottawa Senators are allowing four goals per game and are killing 74.3 percent of their opponents power plays. Matt Murray has allowed 73 goals on 608 shots faced and Marcus Hogberg has allowed 31 goals on 220 shots.
The Canucks are 4-9 in their last 13 road games and 5-1 in their last 6 overall. The Senators are 5-2 in their last 7 home games and 19-46 in their last 65 overall. The under is 5-0-1 in Canucks last 6 overall. The over is 8-3-1 in Senators last 12 overall. The Canucks are 20-8 in the last 28 meetings. The home team is 6-1 in the last 7 meetings. The favorite is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings.
The Vancouver Canucks are starting to heat up and they're playing a team they've absolutely owned this season. The Canucks have won all four meetings against the Senators this season and have outscored them 19-5 during that stretch. The Ottawa Senators had a period where they provided value in the underdog role, but they're back to their losing ways and the offense really struggles in their losses. Based on past matches and their current form, I'll take the Canucks and the PL for max betting value.
