This is a home and home game for both teams as they met on Thursday in Vancouver according to the online hockey betting schedule. NHL betting history shows that Vancouver and Calgary meet on a regular basis. They are rivals in the Northwest Division and play each other frequently. They have already met three times this season and this is the second time they have played each other in a home and home situation.
They opened the season playing each other twice and the Canucks won both games according to the online hockey betting schedule. Overall, the Canucks before Thursday night had won 7 of the last 10 games against Calgary according to NHL betting statistics. At Calgary, the Canucks are 3-2 in the last five meetings between the two teams according to online hockey betting stats.
If you are looking at the NHL betting total in this game you should be aware that before Thursday’s game, the last four meetings between the two teams went over the NHL betting total. This NHL betting trend is not as strong when the games are at Calgary. The last five games have seen the total go 2-2-1 according to NHL betting stats.
Usually when these two teams get together it is a battle of goaltenders according to online hockey betting information. The Flames have Miikka Kiprusoff while the Canucks have Roberto Luongo. That could be why the NHL betting total has gone under the majority of the time when these teams have met.
Calgary has some impact players including Jarome Iginla and Dion Phaneuf. The Canucks just have a roster full of average players according to NHL betting experts. The Sedin twins are okay NHL players but Vancouver usually wins because Luongo stands on his head and steals games.
