In the case of the Vancouver Canucks, they are on a winning streak. In their last game, the Canucks dominated the St. Louis Blues winning 5-0.
New York Rangers 5-2-0
Vancouver Canucks 5-2-0
The New York Rangers in this matchup are the away team as they are in the middle of a grueling travel schedule. The Vancouver Canucks will be the home team and this game will be played at Rogers Arena in Vancouver, British Colombia, Canada.
Kreider – Zib – Kakko
Panarin – Chytil – Laf
Cuylle – Trocheck – Wheeler
Goodrow – Bonino – Pitlick
Lindgren – Fox
Miller – Trouba
Gustafsson – Schneider
It was surprising to see the Rangers go with Quick against the Oilers, but it worked out. With Sheshterkin getting a rest last game, he is likely going to play in this matchup. The lineup is expected to remain unchanged otherwise.
New York Rangers
Still no injuries whatsoever for the Blueshirts. The Rangers entering this game are 100% healthy which is fantastic. Hopefully, the Rangers continue to stay healthy after this game.
Guillaume Brisebois – Lower Body Injury – OUT (On LTIR)
Brisebois was placed on the Long-Term Injured Reserved list due to a lower-body injury that he suffered in training camp.
Teddy Blueger – Knee – Week To Week
Blueger has been dealing with a Knee injury for the past few weeks now. He is still week to week with his injury and the last update was that Blueger did not skate for Friday.
Tucker Poolman – Head – OUT (On LTIR)
Poolman was placed on the Long-Term Injured Reserved list due to his ongoing injury issues with his head. It is scary that he is still dealing with migraine issues since suffering his injury.
Prediction: Vancouver Canucks 2 – New York Rangers 1 (OT)
This is going to be a tough one as both teams are on a hot streak right now. Vancouver has really surprised many with the strong performance they’ve had at the beginning of the season.
With the Blueshirts facing a grueling travel schedule, and Vancouver being the home team, the Canucks should win this game. However, with both teams being so good, I think the Canucks will win this game in overtime, ensuring that both teams at least get a point in this game.
