Canucks Looking For Rare Back-To-Back Wins

The Vancouver Canucks are in search of an elusive second consecutive victory. The Canucks have not won back-to-back games since March 5, 2017 and have since gone a terrible 5-15-3. However, after a victory over the Buffalo Sabres Friday, the Canucks will be looking to end their drought against the Detroit Red Wings Sunday.

  • The Red Wings are 4-1 against the puckline in their past 5 games.
  • The Canucks are 2-6 SU in their last 8 games vs the Red Wings.
