Canucks vs. Golden Knights Prediction

I’m on Vegas here. First, the Golden Knights have just been the slightly hotter team over the last couple of weeks, but this is also the first time the Canucks will be on the road since March 7th, almost a full month. Ironically, their last road game was a 3-1 win in Vegas, but the Golden Knights have righted the ship since then and I think this first road test will be a bit of a shock to the system for the Canucks here. Vegas is playing really well right now, and getting them at this kind of price is hard for me to pass on. Give me the Golden Knights here.
