(The Spread) – It has been a rough past two games for the top-seeded Vancouver Canucks. Can they rebound Sunday to close out their series with the feisty Chicago Blackhawks?

View Current NHL Playoff Betting Odds

Oddsmakers from online sports book have made the Blackhawks -125 favorites, while the Canucks are +105 on the moneyline. The over/under total for this game is currently 5.5 goals. Action begins at 7:35PM EST.

After cruising to three straight wins to take a commanding lead in the series, Vancouver has fallen flat in the last two as it has been outscored 12-2 by the Blackhawks. That includes a 7-2 defeat in Chicago in Game 3, then a 5-0 thrashing in Vancouver in Game 4.

Roberto Luongo was solid through the first three games as the Canucks' goaltender, but has given up 10 goals in his last 40 shots. He was pulled in the second period of Game 4 after allowing four goals. Duncan Keith led the Blackhawks in that one with two goals and two assists, while Marian Hossa tallied two goals and an assist.

According to the latest trends, Chicago is 16-13 against the spread versus Vancouver over the last three seasons. Fifteen of 26 games in this series have gone over the total during the last three seasons.

NHL Free Pick: Vancouver rolled through an incredible regular season and then looked particularly unbeatable after three playoff games. Then the last two games happened and here we are. I am not about to forget what the Canucks have done over the course of the entire year. The last two games are totally out of character for this group and despite their past playoff failures, this is the best team they have entered the playoffs with. It is time for Vancouver to get this done and I really like the value here. Luongo will bounce back in this one. Take Vancouver +105.
