Vancouver Canucks to win (1x2) at odds 1.90
Vancouver Canucks (8W 9L) started new season as one of top favorites to win Stanly Cup, but so far results were not as it was expected. Only 8 wins from 17 games played and only 18th place in overall standings. But it is still early stage of the season. With these results Canucks have 17 points that is only 6 less than first placed Chicago Blackhawks.
Tonight's game is coming for Vancouver Canucks after long away tour (five games with score 2-3) and now in couple next games on their own ice I expect to Canucks came close to the leading teams in the league.
First oponent is New York Islanders. Seems to me they are great opoenent for hosts to record win. From 30 teams, Islanders at this moment are on 29th position on overall standings. The truth they have played couple games less, but only 4 wins so far was really poor result. In last six, New York Islanders have had score of 1W 5L. So, definitely home win is expected tonight.
It is interesting that from 17 games played so far, Vancouver Canucks (8W 9L) only two have finished after over time (7+1 W, 8+1 L).
So, not just that I expect home win tonight, but I expect home win in regular time.
