Vancouver vs Minnesota: prediction for the NHL fixture
The Vancouver Canucks played all their regular season matches away from home. At first, the Canucks managed to win only one game out of four, beating Philadelphia in a penalty shootout (5:4 P). Forward Miller had a great game and earned two points by scoring a goal and giving an assist.
In the following games, the Canucks started gaining momentum. They beat Chicago (4:1) and then recorded a victory over Seattle (4:2). In the game against Chicago, goalie Demko saved 96% of the shots.
The Minnesota Wild had a great start to the new season, mounting a four-game winning streak. The Wild easily got the upper hand over Anaheim (2:1) and Los Angeles (3:2) away from home. At home, Minnesota recorded two more victories in overtime.
But Minnesota couldn't win the fifth game in a row, suffering a defeat at the hands of Nashville (2:5). Minnesota's goalie Kähkönen was able to save only 82% of the shots.
In 3 head-to-head games out of 4, the teams scored in each period.
In 2 of the last 3 head-to-head games, the Canucks scored first.
Vancouver gained momentum in the previous away games, and should feel even more confident back at home. Minnesota, on the contrary, are struggling to earn points, so we believe that the Canucks will be able to extend their winning streak.
