NHL Game Preview – Canucks @ Sharks – Game Four

Discipline will be the word of the day for Vancouver as they hit the ice in the Shark Tank on Sunday.

In Game Three the Canucks spent 15:51 on the penalty kill and gave up three shorthanded goals.

Five of the seven total goals in Game Three came on the power-play and the Sharks have scored six times on 13 man advantage situations.

Defenseman Christian Ehrhoff (shoulder) and Aaron Rome (upper-body) are both expected to miss Game Four for the Canucks.

Sharks forward Logan Couture was crushed by teammate Ryane Clowe during the third period in Game Three but passed his concussion tests and will play today.

NHL Betting Odds Sharks vs Canucks

Both teams know what’s on the line in this one. Vancouver can get to within a game of advancing to the Stanley Cup Final with a win.

The Sharks will be a game away from the golf course and will have to head back to Vancouver down 3-1 with a loss.

Take away the power-play opportunities and San Jose has been average at best in this series. The Sharks have managed just two even-strength goals in three games.

The loss of Ehrhoff is not good for the Canucks but Keith Ballard should be a serviceable replacement.

Five of the last six match-ups between these two teams have been decided by one goal. We expect another close one today.

Take the Canucks with 1.5 pucks (-330) over the Sharks!
