Vancouver Canucks vs New York Rangers: TV, Radio, News, Predictions

The Vancouver Canucks are coming off of a 4-3 overtime win against the Dallas Stars. Can they make it two in a row?

A Vancouver Canucks win — we don’t get to see that very often. It came against a Stanley Cup favourite, the Dallas Stars, and it was another comeback win. What could be better?

I’ve got an idea: a regulation win against the New York Rangers.

The Rangers are the team that has spent the most time with a lead so far. The Canucks… are the worst.

In 16 games, the Canucks led for a total of only 31:09. The Rangers had the lead for more than 10 times as long.

So, how great would a regulation win against the Rangers be?

Here is all the important info you need.

“King Lundqvist with the shutout. The Rangers are still angry about that loss in the last game.”

“I secretly think the Canucks could pull off another win, but they have a terrible record when I do that, so…never mind. Usually the Rangers need Henrik Lundqvist to steal games for them. Lately, they haven’t needed him. They are still scoring in buckets and Raanta has the better numbers.

The Canucks took advantage of some unfortunate circumstances to beat the Rangers once. It probably won’t happen again.”
