Contrarian Crusher - Rickenbach NHL Rotation #65 Sunday 10* Top Play OVER the total in Carolina Hurricanes vs Vancouver Canucks @ 2:05 ET - The Canucks continue red hot in terms of scoring goals but they're going to need that goal-scoring today in this back-to-back situation. I know that Thatcher Demko, back-up goalie, has played well of late but that's because those games were at home where he has been superb this season. Demko, on the road, has allowed 8 goals on 65 shots in his last two appearances. I expect him to be between the pipes here because Jacob Markstrom was in goal for yesterday's Canucks win over the Islanders. Vancouver has now scored 3 or more goals in all 7 of its wins during its current 7-1 run. In fact, the Canucks have averaged 4 goals per game in those 7 victories. Vancouver is facing a desperate Carolina team here and I expect the Hurricanes to battle hard. But the point is the red-hot Canucks are rolling with confidence right now and should match the Canes goal for goal in this one. Carolina is off a 4-3 loss to Vegas but that was the first time in 7 home games that the Hurricanes didn't earn at least a point in the standings. They've scored 7 goals in their past two games and will be ready to attack the Canucks here. Look for them to enjoy plenty of success in the offensive zone in doing so but, again, I don't foresee them shutting down a Vancouver team that has won 14 of 17 games. Take advantage of the low total of 5.5 posted on this game. 10* OVER the total in Carolina
