The Canucks are still looking for their first win of the season after losing 0-3 last Saturday. Vancouver has only been able to score two goals in as many games. They will need to get something going with the puck on offense to win Wednesday night.
The Kings needed an overtime period to get the win over the Flames on Tuesday. Los Angeles was able to fire 40 shots in the game while only giving up 29 to Calgary. They also were able to win the faceoff battle, 32-29.
Los Angeles was able to find the net on one of their two power-play opportunities and was able to keep Calgary out of the net both times they were forced to skate shorthanded. They had seven takeaways and were able to block 18 shots.
Tyler Toffoli got the scoring started for L.A. at 2:52 in the first period. Sean Walker was able to make it a 2-0 game at 17:26 in the first. Ila Kovalchuk increased the lead at 3:46 in the second. Drew Doughty was able to score the winning goal just 50 seconds into the overtime period.
Kovalchuk and Doughty led the Kings with two assists, each. Jack Campbell was between the pipes with 26 saves on 29 shots. Los Angeles currently has three different skaters with four points on the season
The Vancouver Canucks are still looking for the win column after losing 3-0 against the Flames in Calgary on Saturday. Vancouver outshot the Flames 34-30, they simply couldn’t get the puck in the net. They were able to win 34 of 64 faceoffs in the game.
The Canucks were given six power-play opportunities and still weren’t able to get anything going on the offensive end of the ice. They were strong skating a man down with a penalty kill on each of Calgary’s four power-plays.
Vancouver had five takeaways and managed to block six shots. Jacob Markstrom was in the net with 27 saves on 29 shots. The Canucks currently have six skaters with a point this season.
Los Angeles has been able to score an average of four and a half goals per game but are giving opponents the same number. Vancouver has one goal through two games while giving up three goals per game. The Kings have been able to get off 36 shots with the Canucks at 33.5. If Los Angeles can void skating a man down, they should have no problem getting the win Wednesday night.

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN? (NBA,NHL & MLB)
C.O.W. = (Chances of Winning) – The ‘C.O.W.’ percentage is based on a teams win/lost record using their short and long-term win/lost record. After we process it through our ‘math predictor’, we then provide a ‘CHANCES OF WINNING’ percentage for their next game, which let’s you know if there’s any value on betting that team.
C.O.G.O. = (Chances Game Going OVER) – The ‘C.O.G.O.’ percentage is based on both teams OVER/UNDER record, using both teams short and long-term OVER/UNDER records. After we process it through our ‘math predictor’, we then provide a ‘CHANCES OF COVERING’ percentage for that game, which let’s you know if there’s any value on the OVER in that game.
*Note: If there’s a 60% chance of the game going OVER, that means, there’s a 40% chance of the game going UNDER.
DMVI = (Daily Market Value Index) – The DMVI is our researched and calculated line compared to the bookmaker’s line. When calculating the DMVI, we look for the margin of error between the bookmaker’s line, the final result of a game and then produce the value of what the line should be in the next game for both teams. The DMVI is a tool to find value vs. the current line.
VI = (Value Index) – The Value Index is the current psychology of the betting public, based on a teams 7-game cycle.
BULLISH = Team is either (7-0, 6-1, or 5-2) in their last 7 games.
NEUTRAL = Team is either (3-4 or 4-3) in their last 7 games.
BEARISH = Team is either (0-7, 1-6 or 2-5) in their last 7 games.
L.O.A. = (Law of Average) – The “Law of Average” edge is based on the 50/50 theory. Play on a team that lost against the spread (ATS) or straight up (SU) in their last game, vs. a team that won against the spread (ATS) or straight up (SU) in their last game.
