Kings vs. Canucks Prediction

I’m on the Canucks here. Vancouver has still been iffy for me without Thatcher Demko between the pipes and the Kings have played their better hockey on the road. However, Casey DeSmith’s stepped up admirably for the Canucks in relief, and the Canucks have been even better at home this year. I think this will be an entertaining game, but one that I see the Canucks winning in the end. Give me Vancouver.
