Opening NHL Odds: Canucks -143 Favorites
The Rangers have at least gone down fighting since the NHL All-Star break, as they are on a 1-2-5 run in their last eight games, with two shootout losses during that stretch. The Canucks have actually been worse over their last 10 games, going 2-6-2 to earn less points with the UNDER also going 8-2. The good news for Vancouver is the team plays two beatable opponents to close out its three-game homestand after losing 6-2 to the Vegas Golden Knights as +180 home underdogs on Saturday.
