Edmonton Oilers vs Vancouver Canucks NHL Ice Hockey Betting Tips

Vancouver will overcome injury and get their first Game 7 win since beating Chicago in the 2011 playoffs, defying the odds as the heavy underdog and progressing to the Western Conference Final.

Brock Boeser is a huge loss for the Canucks in this game, however, it may be a blessing in disguise giving the Vancouver attack a new look that the Oilers have not seen yet. I expect that if the Canucks are going to get up in this game J.T Miller is going to be the guy that stands up clutch for the home team. 

Vancouver have been strong against Edmonton at Rogers Place this season and the home-ice advantage will play a big role in getting the Canucks through this matchup and denying the Oilers progression. Arturs Silovs is going to have to have a big night in net for Vancouver with a big performance here possibly sealing his starting role for the 2024-25 season. 

The Canucks will get the upset and J.T Miller will score.

  • The Canucks have won 4 of their past 5 games at home against the Oilers
  • There has not been a power play goal scored by either team in the past 2 matches.
  • JT Miller has scored a goal in 2 of 3 games at Rogers Arena in this series.

Edmonton Oilers Form

The Oilers made no mistake at home to force this game to a decider in Vancouver,  thrashing the Canucks 5-1 on Saturday night in the U.S. 

Vancouver had no answers for the top guys of Edmonton in Game 6 with McDavid, Bouchard and Nugent-Hopkins all recording 3 points with Draisaitl also getting a couple of assists.

Edmonton have been working both of their goalies over the past few games and it has paid dividends with Stuart Skinner recording his best save percentage of the series in Game 6 after being rested for games 4 and 5. Skinner made 14 saves letting in just 1 goal to hold a .933 save percentage in the match.

Edmonton Oilers Team News

Adam Henrique is still out and will miss the game.

Vancouver Canucks Form

Vancouver had no offence at all really in Game 6, taking just 15 shots all game, which is the lowest amount they have recorded in all 10 games against the Oilers this season. 

At the other end of the ice, the Canucks gave up plenty of quality scoring chances which resulted in Arturs Silovs having a tough night in the net making 22 saves on 27 shots, recording a save percentage of just .815.

Vancouver Canucks Team News

Brock Boeser has a blood-clotting issue and is not expected to play.
