In the regular season match of the National Hockey League, Vancouver will host San Jose. The game will take place at the Rogers Arena on December 28. Meeting starts at 03:00 GMT.
|Vancouver Canucks||vs||San Jose Sharks|
Vancouver Canucks, despite all the difficulties, continues to earn points. For 12 matches, the team won only one victory in regular time, and managed to snatch six more victories in overtime or a shootout.
The team rehabilitated for two devastating defeats from Winnipeg and St. Louis, beating Seattle (6-5B). The Canucks equalized just a minute before the final whistle.
Then Vancouver went to visit Edmonton and defeated the opponent with a score (5-2).
San Jose Sharks
San Jose Sharks, rather unexpectedly, ended its three-game losing streak. The team met with Minnesota and defeated the clear favorite (5-2).
Few people expected such a successful performance from the team, since before that the team showed disastrous results, losing to Calgary twice with a score of (2-5) and (3-7), respectively.
Now, San Jose will again have to play away, so you can expect the same confident game from the team.
Head to Head
Both teams played each other 12 times, and the success is on the side of Vancouver, as they managed to get 9 wins, while San Jose had 3 wins.
The last meeting took place on December 8 as part of the regular season, and ended with the victory of Vancouver Canucks with a score (6-5).
In head-to-head matches, the teams constantly show a productive game, as they do not differ in reliable defense.
Teams are not used to sitting in defense, preferring open hockey, which in turn constantly leads to a large number of abandoned goals.
Prediction for this match: Over 6 goals.
Vancouver Canucks win.
