The Vancouver Canucks try to bounce back from their worst loss of the season when they continue a five-game trip Thursday against the Florida Panthers. Vancouver saw its seven-game winning streak end in lopsided fashion with a 9-2 loss to Tampa Bay on Tuesday
Vancouver has won three straight meetings between these two teams. The most recent, a 7-2 victory for them on Oct. 28 behind a pair of goals from J.T. Miller.
There should be a lot of offensive fire power in this game. Florida’s 150 goals are the fifth-most in the NHL. On top of that, Vancouver boasts the fourth-best power play in the league despite going 0-for-7 in its last two games.
This should be a fun game to watch and an even more fun place to place a bet on. If that’s why you are here, continue reading to get our expert prediction.
The Canucks are fifth in the Pacific Division but only four points behind first-place Arizona and Vegas, and one point in back of Edmonton and Calgary.
Offensively, Pettersson leads the club with 20 goals and 45 points after scoring six times in the last eight games. He has been aided by Brock Boeser (team-high 27 assists, 40 points), who has hit the scoresheet in 13 of his last 16 games
Team quick stat: The Canucks are second in the league by winning 53.7 percent of their faceoffs. This will help them a lot on the powerplay, and in the offensive and defensive zone.
Jacob Markstrom saw his six-game winning streak stopped after allowing six goals on 21 shots Tuesday before being relieved by Thatcher Demko.
Markstrom should be the starter in tonights game. His stats on the season up to this point are: 15-12-3 W-L | 2.81 GAA | 0.914 SV% | 1 SO
Florida has split its last eight games – all in regulation – after a 5-2 loss to Arizona on Tuesday left them outside playoff position in the Eastern Conference. They will need to start picking up some wins as the top teams in the Atlantic division are coming to life.
The top guns for the Panthers have been slowing down as of late, even though they are 6-4-0 in their last 10. Jonathan Huberdeau (team-high 57 points) didn’t hit the scoresheet Tuesday for the first time in four games this month while Aleksander Barkov (45) hasn’t recorded a point in five straight games.
Bobrovsky has allowed at least three goals in six straight games, going 3-3-0 with a hideous 4.63 GAA and .856 SV% over that stretch. His stats on the season up to this point are: 15-12-4 W-L | 3.33 GAA | 0.895 SV% | 1 SO

Free Vancouver Canucks vs. Florida Panthers NHL Prediction:
Even though there is a lot of talent in this one, I see this as being a low scoring game. The high over scares me a bit as both teams have very strong goalies. I also like the Panthers to beat the spread in this one as a little more of a bold pick.
