NHL Odds: Vancouver Canucks Look for Fourth Straight Win on Wednesday

The Montreal Canadiens and Vancouver Canucks played a hard-fought first game in their two-game mini-series on Monday that resulted in a 2-1 win via shootout for Vancouver. It was the Habs’ sixth game since firing head coach Claude Julien and promoting Dominique Ducharme and so far, the results have been mixed (2-4). On Wednesday, the two North Division teams meet again at Rogers Arena in Vancouver. Puck drops at 11 PM ET on ESPN+.

After holding Vancouver off the scoreboard for almost all three periods, the Montreal Canadiens slipped up in the final minute, allowing C Adam Gaudette to score his third goal of the season. That erased the one-goal lead created by Jeff Petry on the power play in the first period and forced a scoreless overtime.

Ultimately, Vancouver captain Bo Horvat scored the only goal during the shootout. The 2-1 victory for the Canucks extends their win streak to three after they beat the Toronto Maple Leafs last Thursday and Saturday. The Canucks are now fifth in the standings, trailing Montreal by three points, so another Vancouver win will almost eliminate the gap. The puckline has Vancouver pegged as +125 underdogs against Montreal (—145), with a 6.5-goal total.
