The Vancouver Canucks have been doing great at Home in December, winning their last 5 games in a row at Home, outscoring their opponents 18-5. Not only did the Canucks win their last 5 straight at Home, they received two shutouts in that span; a 4-0 win over the Edmonton Oilers and a 2-0 win against the Hurricanes. The Canucks also defeated the Bruins 6-2 in their last outing at Home. The Jets managed to win their last game against the Florida Panthers 5-2, despite losing to the Buffalo Sabres 2-4 on December 17th. The Canucks offense is 12th overall with 2.68 goals per game, however the Canucks are scoring 2.78 goals per game when playing at Home. The Jets offense is 18th overall with 2.57 goals per game, and the Jets are scoring a mere 2.24 goals per game when playing on the Road. Over their last 10 games the Canucks have scored an average of 2.90 goals per game, while allowing only 1.60 goals against per game. The Jets scoring has also increased over their last 10 games, scoring 2.80 goals per game, however the Jets allowed 2.90 goals against per game over their last 10 games. The Canucks have the best penalty kill in the NHL with an impressive 90.2 PK%, and over their last 10 games the Canucks have had a near perfect penalty kill unit that stopped a remarkable 96.7% of their opponents power plays successfully. The Winnipeg power play unit is nothing special, as they are converting only 14.4% of the time (25th overall), and have a low 7.5% road power play. The Canucks have maintained a 92.5% penalty kill across all of their Home games this season. The Jets are likely going to start Ondrej Pavelec in goal. Ondrej has an 11-14-4 record with a 2.86 GAA (34th) and a .908 SV% (31st), while Roberto Luongo remains probable for the Canucks. Luongo has gone 16-9-6 this season and has a 2.26 GAA (11th) and a .919 SV% (16th). The Canucks are the better team and have been dominating their opponents at Home this month, winning five in a row at Home while outscoring their opponents 18-5, while needing extra minutes in only one of those games (3-2 OT win against Phoenix) on Dec.6, which was the first game that kicked off the Home win streak. The Canucks should be able to take care of the Jets at Home in 60 minutes on Sunday and we’ll take it for 2 units.
