National Hockey League Western Conference action is our free pick focus today as we predict the Vancouver vs Arizona contest. The Canucks and Coyotes clash at 8:00 PM ET on March 22, 2015, at the Gila River Arena in Glendale, AZ.
Vancouver Canucks: Surprise NHL playoff contenders
Sitting with 33/1 odds to claim the Stanley Cup just 32 days ago, Vancouver is bucking the odds as they currently sit second in the Pacific Division and sixth overall in the Western Conference. Their positioning is tenuous though as fifth to ninth are separated by just five points. The Canucks have been somewhat streaky with a 20-15-1 record since the beginning of January. Vancouver rolls into the desert after dismantling the defending Champion LA Kings 4-1 is California yesterday.
Arizona Coyotes: Doing their best to catch Buffalo in the NHL Basement Battle
Wilting like a wild rose on a hot July day in the desert, Arizona has posted a pathetic 1-16-1 record dating back to February 10, 2015. Somewhat ironically, the lone win was a 3-2 shootout victory at home over the Canucks on March 5. Since then the Coyotes have gone 0-6-1 and have been outscored by a 19-6 margin that includes two shutouts and a 3-1 loss to Pittsburgh last night. Buffalo still owns a three point “lead” in the chase for the NHL cellar over the ‘Yotes.
Canucks vs Coyotes Call: Arizona has been outscored by a 61-23 count over their last 18 games. If they’re not tanking on purpose then they really suck. Expect the Desert dogs to lay down again tonight. Vancouver has a fairly light stretch drive schedule but every point is precious in the Wild West. Making hay versus cellar dwellers is a must for the ‘Nucks. We are cruising with the Canucks and a 300 unit wager on the money line odds posted on the betting board at Bodog.
