Neither of these teams are making the playoffs but are having inspired late season surges.
At first glance you may be thinking that two non-playoff team would be one to miss but when you look at their recent records, and the teams they’ve taken down, then you’ll see that this is low-key must-see TV.
With a 29-32-5 record on the year, the Vancouver Canucks are pushing to finish their season above .500 once again.
Now, fans may not be too happy as each win effectively drops their position in the upcoming NHL Draft but it does give hope for what they can do with a fresh start next year.
The Canucks are 13-15-4 away from Rogers arena as they start a three-game road trip but looking to improve those numbers after winning their last 5 straight.
They’re 6-1 over their past 7 with two wins over Dallas and a home victory over the Maple Leafs during that stretch.
Vancouver has seen an uptick in their offense as of late with consecutive 5-2 victories and have scored three or more goals in six of their past seven outings.
They’re averaging 3.36 goals scored per game which makes them the 10th best team in terms of offense and they also have the 10th best power play which is operating at 22.7%.
Elias Pettersson leads the team with 83 points, while Andrei Kuzmenko has a team high 33 goals on the season. Up to 25 goals on the year, J.T. Miller is riding a hot streak with 4 goals and 6 points in his past three games.

Defenseman Quinn Hughes leads all Canucks blueliners with 61 points in 62 games and has a team-high 56 assists on the year.
