Game: Los Angeles Kings at Vancouver Canucks Apr 22 2012 8:05PM
Prediction: Vancouver Canucks
Grade: Loser (-160)
Reason: I'm playing on VANCOUVER. After dropping the first three games of the series, the Canucks showed that they weren't ready to go golfing quite yet, earning a 3-1 Game 4 victory at LA last Wednesday. That kept the series alive and now we're back in Vancouver. Well-rested and with the full support of the Vancouver crowd behind them, I expect them to now force a Game 6. The Kings may have won the first two games here. However, they're still 20-23 on the road. On the other hand, the Canucks are still 27-16 at home. Schneider will get the start again for Vancouver - not only has he been better than Luongo but the team has been better when he's been in net. Off the 3-1 victory last time out, note that the Canucks are 59-41 the last 100 times that they were off a win by two or more goals in their previous game. If recent history is any indication, the extra break in between games should serve the Canucks well. In fact, they're a highly lucrative 21-4 (+15.8) the last 25 times that they played with three or more day's rest in between games. While the price is admittedly a little on the high side, all things considered, I feel it could easily be even higher. *8
