A confident goaltender is arguably the most dangerous weapon in the NHL playoffs and the Vancouver Canucks have a Latvia Monster that seems to be growing with every match. 

Edmonton has executed their game plan well, building more pressure than Vancouver, however, it is the Canucks that have taken their chances in this series and have a 2-1 lead. The Oilers had 45 shots in regular time in Game 3, but Silovs was a wall and denied the Oilers power forwards time and time again. 

Silovs will need to play that role again and I am backing Canucks net-minder to keep Edmonton under 3.5 goals and give Vancouver a 3-1 lead in the series.

  • Vancouver have beaten Edmonton in 6 of their past 7 matches.
  • Vancouver have won the past 4 matches played at Rogers Place against Edmonton.
  • Edmonton starting goaltender Stuart Skinner has a save percentage of .789 this series.
  • Vancouver have converted 3 of their past 6 power players over the past 2 games in this series.

Vancouver Canucks Form


Arturs Silovs had a huge game for the Canucks in Game 3 making 42 saves and had a save percentage of .933. The Latvian goaltender was a brick wall at time and made countless big saves, especially a couple of key breakaway opportunities on Leon Draisaitl, who leads the league with 18 playoff points and 7 goals.

Elias Lindholm has proven his trade -worth in this postseason with 5 goals, scoring two on the power play last match, the second handing the Canucks an unassailable 4-2 lead. 

Elias Pettersson has been struggling with illness throughout these playoffs and is still yet to fire. 

Vancouver Canucks Team News


Carson Soucy will miss game 4 after a cross-check on Connor McDavid at the end of Game 3.

Edmonton Oilers Form


Missed opportunities cost the Oilers in Game 3, out shooting the Canucks 45-18 and playing the majority of the game in their offensive zone, building pressure that too often amounted to nothing. 

At the other end, Vancouver were able to capitalize on their chances as the Oilers gave up too many good looks as the Canucks took advantage of their power plays, converting 2 from 3 with the extra man.

Stuart Skinner has failed to keep out the Canucks in this series, recording a save percentage of just .789 in the opening 3 games, even getting pulled 4 minutes into the third period of Game 3 after giving up 4 goals on 15 shots.

Edmonton Oilers Team News


Adam Henrique is still suffering from an undisclosed injury and it is unknown if he will participate in Game 4.
