Wednesday's NHL Pick
DETROIT, MI (TheSpread) – The Vancouver Canucks are making a big push for the top spot in the Western Conference and on Wednesday they take on Detroit. Here is a breakdown of my pick for this game.
Vancouver is 19-8-4 on the season for 42 points. They are third in the Western Conference right now. The Canucks have scored 101 goals and allowed just 78. They are 8-5-2 on the road and winners in 8 of their last 10.
Detroit is 20-8-4 on the season for 44 points. The Wings have scored 105 goals and allowed 88. The Wings are 12-4-3 at home and are winners in just 4 of their last 10.

Vancouver Canucks vs. Detroit Red Wings, 7:30PM ET (View Matchup)
The favorite has won 10 of the last 14 meetings in this series while the over has also hit in 5 of the last 6 games in this series. The Canucks are on a roll, and the Wings are in a funk, but I expect Detroit to bounce back on Wednesday night. My pick is the Wings to get a needed win at home, as they are too talented to continue to play poorly.
