The Vancouver Canucks will take on the Dallas Stars on Monday in a key Western Conference tilt. Both teams are atop their divisions, as the Canucks have a NHL best 67 points, and the Stars come into action with 63. On New Years Eve these two teams played in Dallas, with the Canucks winning 4-1. They will turn around and play again on February 1st in Dallas and February 19th in Vancouver.

Canucks Overview

The Canucks are 29-10-9 overall; 13 points ahead of second place Colorado. The Canucks took a 4-3 loss in a shootout on Saturday to the Calgary Flames. Vancouver ranks third in the NHL in goals per game, with 3.2. The Canucks leading scorer has been Daniel Sedin with 61 points. Sedin has scored 27 goals and dished out 34 assists. Vancouver’s goaltending has been sensational this season as well, allowing just 2.4 goals per game. Roberto Luongo is allowing 2.35 goals per game as the Canucks starter. Vancouver’s head coach Alian Vigneault was recently named as the head coach of the Western Conference All Star team. The All Star game is the 58th annual in the National Hockey League. The game will take place January 30th in Carolina.

Stars Overview

Dallas comes in with a 29-14-5 record. The Stars are five points ahead of second place Anaheim. The Stars are coming off a 7-5 loss on Friday night in Calgary. The loss for the Stars snapped their eight game road winning streak. Dallas is scoring 2.9 goals per game and allowing 2.6 on the season. The leading scorer for the Stars has been Brad Richards. Richards has 37 assists and 19 goals. The Stars are looking to rebound from two straight seasons of less than 40 wins. Last year, Dallas finished 37-31-14.

Canucks vs. Stars Pick and Odds

This should be an excellent game in the National Hockey League. With the All Star game approaching, the action will heat up, as they know they are getting a break soon. Both of these teams are at the top of their divisions, and also jockeying for playoff positions. The Canucks can put pucks in the net quickly, while Dallas has the ability to go at it in spurts. Look for goaltending to play a huge factor in this game. We know Luongo has been excellent, but how will Dallas goaltender Andrew Raycroft respond after missing time with an injury. Raycroft came back for the first time since January 9th with 26 shots in the shut-out win over Minnesota. We like the home team (Vancouver Canucks) to win this game and continue their quest for the most points in the National Hockey League. The betting odds at Sportsbet have the Canucks at $1.55 payout. We predict a 4-1 Canucks win making this a great bet on the Canucks.
