This was the first such defeat for Carolina this season, and Rod BrindAmour's men will be looking to bounce back in the upcoming fixture.
Vancouver defeated Seattle in the first game of 2022 (5:2), but couldn't build on their success and suffered two defeats in a row in the following matches. The Canucks lost to Florida (2:5), and then to Tampa Bay (2:4).
On average, Bruce Boudreau's charges concede an average of three goals per game in away games. In the near future, Vancouver will have to play some really tough opponents, and they need to score as many points as possible.

In 6 out of 7 games of Carolina, more than one goal was scored in the first period.
Carolina had a disaster of a game against Columbus, and if they managed to recover from that, they should have no problems defeating Vancouver. The Hurricanes are a better team on paper, they are more accurate in attack, and they will be looking to redeem themselves in the upcoming fixture.
Our prediction - Carolina to win
More than six goals were scored in three out of 10 head-to-head games. Considering than Carolina conceded six goals in the last match, they will try to act reliably on the defensive in this fixture. We suggest betting on the total under.
Second bet - total under 6.5 goals
