Vancouver Canucks vs New Jersey Devils prediction

The New Jersey Devils are getting the benefit of the doubt at home, but they're 9-8-2 at home this season, so it probably shouldn't mean much. The Vancouver Canucks remain one of the best teams in the league, and getting them at plus money just doesn't feel right. I'm going to grab plus money with the Canucks whenever I can. Give me the Canucks and the more favorable price on the road.
