Red Wings vs. Canucks Prediction

I’m on the over here. These are the two highest-scoring teams in the NHL and both have been playing very well as of late so there’s no reason for me to think that won’t carry forward here. The Canucks play their best on the road and the Red Wings have had a ton of success in this matchup in recent years. I think this one’s going to be a fun watch with plenty of goals so give me the over.
