The Boston Bruins and Vancouver Canucks face off on Saturday in an NHL showdown at Rogers Arena.  Let’s look at the betting matchup and give a free Bruins vs Canucks prediction.

Bruins Coming off Overtime Loss

The Bruins in the last game faced off against the Calgary Flames and they were able to force overtime, but they ended up losing by a goal. Charlie Coyle had a strong game scoring two goals. The Bruins are averaging 3.35 goals, while their defense is giving up 2.69 goals per game. The Bruins offense is ranked 10th while the defense is ranked 5th. David Pastrnak is having a huge season and he’s scored 36 goals and added 46 assists so far this season. 

Canucks Look to Bounce Back

The Canucks in the last game faced off against the Seattle Kraken and they were defeated 5-2. Thatcher Demko started in goal and he saved 26 of the 30 shots that he faced and the goal tending is going to need to be better. The Canucks are averaging 3.64 goals, while their defense is giving up 2.74 goals per game. The offense is ranked 2nd while the defense is ranked 7th. J.T. Miller has scored 29 goals and added 47 assists so far this season. The defense is going to need to step up here.

Bruins vs Canucks Betting Prediction

These are two good offenses, but both teams also have good defenses. In the last game the Canucks gave up five goals and I think they are going to really struggle in this game. Look for the Bruins to score at least five goals here, and that is going to be the difference here. The Canucks' offense is going to struggle to keep up, and it will be the Bruins that get the job done here. Back the Bruins on the money line.
