Elias Petterson and The Canucks are on route to Colorado for a Remembrance day matchup. While these two teams will be looking to put on a show for our Veterans, a lot will be at stake in the standings with these Conference underachievers.
Vancouver comes into this matchup with a slue of injuries and a below average record. If they’d like to keep their head above water, this is an important game to steal. However, they play a desperate team in one of the hardest environments in sports, the mile high.
Offensively, The Canucks have averaged an impressive 32.92 shots per game, unfortunately only resulting in 2.69 goals on average. The lack of goals may be their powerplay difficulties, as they are sitting 21st league wide with only a 17.65 PP/PK%.
Defensively, they have struggled tremendously on the powerplay, as they place 31st in the NHL. Luckily for Canucks fans, for shots and goals, they are 11th and 13th respectfully.
Not unlike their Conference counterpart, The Avalanche enter this game with a massive amount of injuries. Including their best player, Nathan MacKinnon, and great defensemen Cole Makar.
On the offensive glass, Colorado averages 3.00 goals per game, on an average of 32.10 shots. However, their PP/PK% is horrendous at 10.53%, 31st league wide.
Colorado’s Achilles heal has been their defense, ranking 31st in goals against and 21st in shots against. One saving grace, is their suffocating defensive powerplay, only allowing a goal 15.38% of the time.
NHL Betting Trends:
- Vancouver is 5-2 SU against Colorado as the road team in past 7 games.
- The total has gone UNDER in 4 of Vancouver’s last 5 games.
- Colorado is 4-10 SU in past 14 games.
- The total has gone OVER in Colorado’s last 6 games played in November.
Free Vancouver Canucks vs. Colorado Avalanche NHL Prediction
Both of these teams are badly beaten up, however the edge seems to be with the road dog. Reason being key injuries, and Vancouver has been very good against Colorado in the last few years.
The Avalanche missing MacKinnon, Makar, and many more, has proven to be majorly detrimental. While, The Canucks do have injuries, they aren’t to the extent of Colorado.
In conclusion, we love the value with Vancouver, give us the plus money and the road dog to beat up on this battered Avalanche team!
