Analysis

66 Vancouver at Vegas

We’ve been waiting all season for the Canucks to take a step back. They have been outplaying their advanced stats on a regular basis. Just in the last ten games in 5x5 play we see they have a Goal Share of 64.52 with an xG% of 53.58. While they managed a 6-3-1 record over that stretch, the victories have come against non-playoff opponents. Wins have come against Anaheim, Calgary, Montreal and Buffalo. The recent losses to Dallas, Los Angeles, Washington and Colorado. A clear run where they beat the bad teams and lose to good teams. It doesn’t help that they have lost 4 of the last 5 visits to the Fortress.

This is the first game back home for Vegas after a 3-1 roadtrip. Usually that’s a negative, but this is a different team since the trade deadline. The new veterans which were brought in are a hungry group, who can taste the postseason. Therefore we don’t believe this is a typical returning home squad. Keep in mind, just two weeks ago this team was on the verge of falling out of the playoffs.
