Canucks vs. Flyers Pick

NHL Predictions: Canucks vs. Flyers 11/21/17

Are the Vancouver Canucks and host Philadelphia Flyers going to play a game dominated by strong goaltending tonight at 7PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, the Flyers are a -175 favorite to win on the moneyline. The Canucks are a +145 underdog, while the total is set at 5.5 goals.

Vancouver comes in with a 9-8-3 record after a 4-3 overtime loss at home to the Blues. Philadelphia is 8-8-4 following a 5-4 overtime loss at home to the Flames. The Flyers won both meetings last season, 5-4 in a shootout at home and 3-2 on the road. The over-under went 1-0-1.

The Canucks were led by Sven Baertschi with a goal and an assist in the loss to St. Louis. Brock Boeser and Markus Granlund each had a goal. Loui Eriksson dished out two assists. Anders Nilsson made 27 saves on 31 shots. Vancouver gave up the tying goal at the 15:14 mark of the third period before allowing the winner midway through overtime.

Sean Couturier, Brandon Patrick, Nolan Patrick and Ivan Provorov all had a goal in the Flyers' loss Calgary. Jakub Voracek recorded two assists. Brian Elliott turned away 26 of 31 shots. Philadelphia allowed the equalizer with 5:04 remaining before giving up the game-winner 1:18 into overtime.

The home team is 4-1 in the last five meetings. The Flyers are 0-4 in their last four games versus Western Conference opponents.

Bet on Canucks vs. Flyers 

Neither team was very tight on the back end last game and will want to correct that. The Canucks don't have a high-powered offense and will struggle to score more than a goal or two. And don't expect the Flyers to skate away with this one. Goaltending and defense will dominate here.
