Canucks roll past Sharks
Vancouver recorded a 5-2 victory Saturday night at San Jose to move to 9-3-2 on the season. Brandon Sutter gave the Canucks a 1-0 lead 4:17 in with assists going to Josh Leivo and Jake Virtanen. Elias Pettersson made it 2-0 later in the third off assists by Brock Boeser and Bo Horvat. Virtanen pushed it to 3-0 45 seconds into the second period with assists from Alexander Edler and Tyler Myers. Adam Gaudette made it 4-0 less than five minutes later as Horvat and Troy Stecher drew assists.

NHL Betting Trends
The Blues are 10-2 in their last 12 games. St. Louis is 5-1 in its last six games as a road underdog.
The Canucks are 7-1 in their last eight games as a favorite. Vancouver is 4-1 in its last five games versus the Western Conference.
The Canucks have been very good thus far this season, but the Blues have hit their stride and do a lot of things right on a regular basis in order to win games. I have no issues betting on St. Louis here with plus money and No. 1 goalie Jordan Binnington in net. Both teams had a day off between games and had to travel, so there is no fatigue advantage. Roll with the Blues in this spot.
