The Canucks may be in 1st in the Pacific, but oddsmakers arent’ giving them a ton of love on Wednesday in a virtual toss up game against San Jose. Both teams are listed as -110 on the moneyline.
What makes that line so dumbfounding for Vancouver backers is the fact that San Jose has been mired near the bottom of the Western Conference basically for the whole 1st half of the season.
Both teams have a win under their belt post all-star break coming into this matchup. Teams can come out rusty after a long layoff, but each have looked sharp in the starts to their second half.
Everybody keeps waiting for them to fall, but the Canucks keep doing what they do during a three game win streak and with victories in 5 of the last 6.
The Canucks are 3 points up in the Pacific, 12 points ahead of 6th place San Jose. Vancouver looks like a legit contender based on their combination of solid offense and great defense as of late.
During their current 3-game win streak, no Vancouver opponent has scored more than a goal. The Canucks have outscored Arizona, San Jose, and St. Louis by a score of 10-3 over that span – although all being home games.
The Canucks have gone with Thatcher Demkos in net the last two and he’s responded nicely with just 2 goals allowed vs. 55 shots.
San Jose Sharks
There’s definitely value on Vancouver on Wednesday, mostly because their last two wins have come against the defending Stanly Cup Champion Blues as well as these Sharks on January 18th.
San Jose looked completely mismatched in the 1-4 loss two games ago. The Sharks managed a total of just 7 SOG through the first two periods and ended up with only 18 SOG for the entire game.
The Sharks have started the return from the all-star break in a good way, scoring a 4-2 home win albeit vs. a pretty bad Anaheim team. San Jose is just 14-11-1 at home this year though.
Does San Jose go with Martin Jones in net here? It was Aaron Dell between the pipes to kick off the second half and he has won 5 of his last 8 starts. Jones has allowed 9 goals his last two starts and has been used sparingly.

- Canucks are 5-1 last 6 overall
