Free NHL Pick For April 15: Canucks vs. Kings
Vancouver Canucks (2.00) vs. Los Angeles Kings (1.83); Total 5
10:35 PM ET starting time for this game.
Game #3 in the Vancouver vs. Los Angeles series goes Sunday night in Los Angeles (10:35 PM ET). Surprisingly the Kings took both games from the Canucks in Vancouver and return home with a commanding 2-0 series lead with the next 2 games on home ice. The biggest news surrounding this game is whether or not Luongo would get the start for game #3. We finally have an answer which is no. Schneider will get the start for the Canucks in game #3 in L.A. and why not. Luongo hasn’t been bad in games #1 or #2 but with the season that Cory Schneider has had he deserves to get the start. Since the All-Star break Schneider went 10-3-1 with a 1.54 GAA and a .949 save %. Now Schneider will get the chance to prove his worth in the playoffs. As well, the Canucks have confirmed that Daniel Sedin will not be playing in game #3 or even making the trip to Los Angeles. Can the Canucks rebound with a win and get back into this series? I have not been impressed with what I have seen in the 1st two games from the Canucks. Until Vancouver shows me something more I am not ready to back them. However, I have loved what I have seen from Schneider all year and I have no hesitation in backing Schneider in this game. How do you bet on a goalie? You can’t directly but you can bet on how many goals Schneider will give up (which is Los Angeles’ Team Total). Currently the Kings team total in this game is 2.5 goals (1.77 to the Under) at Bodog Sportsbook. I’ll take the Kings to score UNDER 2.5 goals. The Canucks can still lose this game 2-1, 2-0, or 1-0 (which I think are real possibilities) and this wager still wins.
