Season Series: 2-0 Canucks

Starting goaltenders:
VAN- Roberto Luongo (2011-12 stats: 26-11-7, 2.34 GAA)
PHX- Mike Smith (2011-12 stats: 28-14-7, 2.27 GAA)

Injury report:
VAN- Keith Ballard (concussion, out), Andrew Ebbett and Aaron Volpatti (shoulder, out)
PHX- Gilbert Brule (head, questionable), Rostislav Klesla (upper body, out), Derek Morris (groin, out), Kyle Chipchura (wrist, out), David Schlemko (foot, out)

Game thoughts: Two of the hottest teams in the NHL will be facing off tonight. Vancouver has lost in regulation just once since Jan. 15, while the Coyotes are 10-0-1 in their last 11 contests. The Canucks have gotten the better of Dave Tippett’s crew in each of the first two meetings. I see that changing tonight. Look for Smith to come up big again tonight to keep the ‘Yotes atop the Pacific Division.
Prediction: Coyotes 3, Canucks 2

The rest of today’s predictions:
Bruins over Senators
Maple Leafs over Panthers
Capitals over Islanders
Hurricanes over Predators
Red Wings over Blue Jackets
Canadiens over Lightning
Kings over Wild
Sharks over Flyers
