Flames vs. Canucks Prediction

I’m on the Canucks here. I don’t love the Canucks as much with Casey DeSmith between the
pipes, but the Canucks as a team are the better option here and are still fighting for the Pacific
division title. Calgary could use the win themselves, but side-by-side, the Canucks are the better
team in better form and at home, I’m going to roll with the Vancouver Canucks.
