Teams Conclude Home-and-Home Series
This is a rare home-and-home matchup between teams from the Eastern and Western Conferences. The Detroit Red Wings are looking to sweep the two games after scoring two power-play goals in a 5-2 win at home over the Vancouver Canucks on Saturday.
Only Arizona has a lower points percentage than Vancouver in 2023. Detroit’s is only slightly better. One of the main issues for the Canucks has been keeping the puck out of their own net with a 4.35 goals-against average since the start of January, the worst in the NHL. For Detroit, it has scored the seventh-fewest goals during that time.
Winger Lucas Raymond is questionable with a lower-body injury and defenseman Jake Walman is questionable with an upper-body issue for the Red Wings. They both missed Saturday’s game.
Goalie Thatcher Demko (lower body) and forward Jack Studnicka (illness) are the latest Vancouver players to be sidelined. Both could return later this month. Winger William Lockwood (concussion) is out indefinitely while forward Ilya Mikheyev, Tanner Pearson and Tucker Poolman are out for the season.
Two of Detroit’s youngest players led the way in the recent win against the Canucks.
Jonatan Berggren scored twice after being held scoreless in each of the previous three games and managing one goal in his previous 11 games.

Reigning Calder Trophy-winning defenseman Moritz Seider had a pair of assists to give him seven over the last five games. The Red Wings have won the last three games when Seider has at least two points.
For Detroit to move up in the Eastern Conference standings, more will be needed from both of them.
The NHL betting lines total has gone under in six of Detroit’s last nine games at Vancouver.
Nice Start for New Acquisition
Anthony Beauvillier was a key piece of the trade that sent Bo Horvat to the New York Islanders.
Beauvillier failed to score a goal in each of his last seven games with the Islanders and the goal drought had reached nine games. However, Beauvillier has goals in each of the last two games. He scored in a win over his former team and followed that up by scoring a goal and assisting in the other in Saturday’s loss to Detroit.
Beauvillier didn’t have goals in back-to-back games with the Islanders this season and only had points in consecutive games twice. Now he is looking for his first three-game run with points since March, 2022, when he had seven assists in a span of four games.
Beauvillier hasn’t scored goals in three games in a row since the 2021 Stanley Cup Playoffs.
The Las Vegas odds total has gone over in six of Vancouver’s last seven games as well as in 10 of the last 12 against Eastern Conference teams.

Red Wings vs Canucks Picks and Prediction
Vancouver had more shots, more faceoff wins and more hits when facing Detroit on Saturday. However, after giving up two goals in the first 2:35, the Canucks had to play catch-up the rest of the way.
Detroit outnumbered Vancouver 6-3 in power-play opportunities in the first matchup. With Detroit one of the least penalized teams in the NHL, the Canucks might need to tread carefully in this one.
The Canucks are just 10-14 against the spread at home. However, Detroit has covered just 11 of its 23 road games.
Vancouver isn’t favored that often, but the Canucks are 6-3 in the last nine games when entering as the favorite, with only two of those games finishing under the total.
The Canucks are 9-5-1 as the favorite with the Red Wings just 14-19-3 when listed by the sportsbook as the underdog.
Despite the injury concerns, don’t be surprised to see the Canucks take advantage of the fact that Detroit is just a .500 team on the road.
The Detroit Red Wings are listed at +100 in our Las Vegas odds. This means that if you wager $100 on the Red Wings, you have a chance to win $100. Vancouver is -120, offering a chance to win $83 on a $100 wager.
The implied probability attached to the betting lines gives the Detroit Red Wings a 50.00% chance to win, with the Vancouver Canucks at 54.55%.
