Vancouver Canucks vs. Carolina Hurricanes

Both teams go into the game in good form. The home team will be looking to extend their three-game home winning streak, even though the wins were not easy to come by (4-0 against LA, 2-1 against Boston after a shootout and the same was in the 4-3 win over Winnipeg). The visiting Hurricanes will be looking to extend their four-game winning streak.

Vancouver will enter the game with a score of 11-15-2 (6-7-1 at home), while Carolina is 19-6-1 (12-3-1 away). Quite a surprise for Vancouver to have a negative home score.

The absence of Michael Ferland, Travis Hamonic, Matthew Highmore, Brady Keeper and Brandon Sutter is not playing into the hands of the home team. Oliver Ekman-Larsson remains a question mark for tonight's game, having already missed the last game with an unspecified injury. The visitors will miss Tony DeAngelo and Brett Pesce. A question mark hangs over Jordan Martinook, who has already missed four games due to an ankle injury and it is unclear if he will start today's game.

Vancouver vs Carolina (standings)
* goals scored per game: 2.393 (28th) vs 3.231 (8th)
* goals conceded per game: 2.964 (19th) vs 2.154 (1st)
* shots on goal per game: 33.46 (10th) vs 33.12 (11th)
* success shooting percentage: 7.15% (31st) vs 9.76% (13th)
* shot success rate of all goalies: 90.8% (18th) vs 92.00% (2nd)
* power play usage: 18.75% (17th) vs 20.73% (11th)
* power plays defended: 65.93% (32nd) vs 87.88% (2nd)

Vancouver has the worst shorthanded games and I think that could be one of the deciding factors, as Carolina has a nice 20% power play usage, plus they win buly more often than Canucks, don't concede goals and their goalkeepers has the second best shot success rate in the league. Add to that the fact that Vancouver has trouble scoring goals (only 2.4 goals per game on average), I don't think they'll beat Carolina tonight. Carolina, moreover, is on a roll and is coming off a huge performance.

My bet:
Carolina Hurricanes to win in regular time @ 2.30 (bet365)
