Boston Bruins @ Vancouver Canucks - [-190]
The Boston Bruins start their West Coast trip against the Vancouver Canucks as the Bruins are primed for a big win. The Bruins should go into this game with the upmost confidence as they have a pretty great record away from home against the Western Conference teams (7-3). The Canucks, on the other hand, are 5-5-5 at home this season against the Eastern Conference which is just complete and utter shit. Another factor is that the Bruins destroy them in all offensive and defense stats. Also, the Bruins average the most shots away from home, and the Canucks average the least amount at home in the entire NHL , and in particular with the Canucks defense issues this season, this can be the biggest factor for the B's winning. I think this game will be close, but the Bruins are just better across the board.
Pittsburgh Penguins @ Calgary Flames - [-112]
The Pittsburgh Penguins keep their Western trip going as they go up against the hottest team in the NHL the Calgary Flames. The Penguins go into this game with the game plan of "shot the fucking puck" as the Flames are a bang average team in their defensive zone. Firstly, the Pens are 7-2-1 in their last 10 in all games against the Flames. Also, the Pens average almost more than one goal more per game than the Flames, the away team averages more than five shots per game and also have the third best power play in the league. If there is any team to stop the Flames hot streak, it's the Penguins and they will.
