Kings vs Canucks Betting Prediction

Both of these teams come into this matchup on three game winning streaks, but Vancouver has been one of the top teams in the NHL this season. The Canucks have a large lead over the Oilers and Kings in the Pacific division and they are 24-7-4 at home this year. Los Angeles is in a battle with Vegas for the third seed in the Pacific and they are 20-11-4 on the road. Both teams are very solid defensively, but Vancouver is one of the highest scoring teams in the league. This should be a very entertaining game, but I am going to go with the Kings, as the Canucks are on their backup goalie.
