Goalies have been confirmed and I like this bet, cause to me compared to other matches the line is "lowish" and maybe for some reasons. Halak, who is Boston's back up goalie will get the start tonight. Of course he has had good start of the season, BUT I know him from past seasons and for me he dont strike anymore that good goalie. For example last season he had 3.19 goals allowed avg. per game and only 90.77 SV% in hole season with the NY Islanders. He can always give up easy goals. Not much to say from Boston's offense, their 1st line with Pastrnak- Bergeron- Marchand is just great in offensive end and also on PP. I think they will make lot of damage against weak defence of the Canucks.
Markström starts on goal for the Canucks. He is also a pretty "poor" goalie to me in NHL level. This season he has allowed 3.12 goals avg. Still Canucks has pretty talented offense, lead by the best rookie of the season Swedish Elias Pettersson who has made fantastic 10+6 points in 10 games so far this season. Of course Canucks are missing still few players, and most important is prob Boeser, who was last season their leading offensive player.
Anyways I expect 5 goals or more in this match, AND this is OT included so if its 2-2 and OT bet is only half lost!
