Analysis
My selection is on the 'over' between Vancouver and Pittsburgh at 7:05 pm et on Wednesday. The 'under' has cashed in consecutive games for each of these teams heading into Wednesday's clash in Pittsburgh. I expect a different story to unfold here, however. Note that the last time these two teams matched up in the Steel City they combined to score a whopping 14 goals. Interestingly, Thatcher Demko started that game for the Canucks two years ago and he's likely to be between the pipes again here. Vancouver has allowed just three goals over its last two games but I don't think that's a sustainable trend. Here, it will be facing a Penguins squad returning home off a successful Canadian road trip and one that's in line for an offensive breakout, noting that Vancouver is allowing 4.1 goals per game on the road this season. On the flip side, the Pens have given up a grand total of just three goals over their last four games - another unsustainable trend in my opinion and we can expect the Canucks to come in with an attacking mentality knowing their penchant for giving up goals on the road. Take the over (10*).
