Vancouver vs Florida: prediction for the NHL game
Vancouver played the last nine games away from home. They suffered only three defeats in regulation and another one in a penalty shootout, to Los Angeles (1:2 SO). The Canucks quickly recovered and beat Washington (4:2), and in that game forward Petterson scored a double.
The Canucks built on their success, having recorded a victory over Nashville in the following match (3:1). This time, goalie Demko was the hero of the game - he saved 31 shot out of 32.
At home,Florida didn't leave a chance to their opponents, but they unexpectedly suffered a defeat to Calgary (1:5) away. Goalie Knight gave a subpar performance in that game.
But in the second game away, the Panthers easily crushed Edmonton (6:0). Bobrovsky was way more reliable than his teammate and performed a shutout. Thanks to their consistent results, Florida top the Eastern Conference table.
In 3 head-to-head games in a row, the teams scored in each period.
In 3 head-to-head games in a row, the teams scored more than one goal in the first period.

Our prediction - Florida to win
The teams regularly score a lot in head-to-head games. They netted over 5 goals in four meetings in a row, so we suggest taking the over.
Second bet - total over 6 goals
