Canucks Unable to Win On The Road

Ryan Miller Vancouver Canucks

If the Vancouver Canucks expect to be a legitimate playoff caliber team, they will need to start getting it done on the road. Since the start of November the Canucks have just two wins in 11 games away from Vancouver. It will not be easy for the Canucks to rectify the situation Sunday as they visit the Chicago Blackhawks.

Shark Bites
  • Corey Crawford (.921 SV%, 2.33 GAA) is expected to start for the Blackhawks.
  • The Canucks are 4-2 in the last six against games the Blackhawks.
  • The UNDER has hit in eight of the past 12 meetings between these teams.

The Canucks offense has been a two-man show once again with the Sedin twins combining for 62 points and a +12 rating through 30 games. Vancouver has allowed the ninth most goals in the NHL this season with goalie Ryan Miller posting a pedestrian .914 save percentage.

You can’t talk about the Blackhawks without talking about Patrick Kane who leads the NHL in goals and points. If Kane puts up a point Sunda,y he will extend his streak to 26 consecutive games with at least one point, which would be the longest streak since Mats Sundin hit 30 in 1992-92.
