Phoenix plays in San Jose tonight, and Vancouver is off until Sunday. So I think the Canucks will come out a little rusty, but should be able to shake it off, and hopefully have Bertuzzi's contract headache behind them. So I'll say the Canucks get behind a bit, but keep their home record perfect.
Both goals by Bertuzzi. Cloutier gets the start, and has strong defenseive play in front of him. Scorless after the first 2 periods, but a continued powerplay from the second will see Bertuzzi pot a goal. His second will come even strength. A tight checking game, with not many shots by either team.
Yah the Yotes are playing wide open hockey right now but they are scoring alot too.. 12 goals in the last three games. The Yotes played a hard and long game last night so they will be dirt tired.. I say look for a Vancouver win about 6-4 I say.. maybe 6-5, with lots of hitting and LOTS of penalties..
