Cherry Picks Vancouver

NHL Jan 25, 2022

Don Cherry's NHL Pick for Tuesday:

Edmonton Oilers at Vancouver Canucks (Tuesday Night) – This is a tough matchup.  The Canucks are an underdog at home and have stumbled as of late. They have had a lot of players out with Covid protocols, but now it looks like they might all be back for tonight's game.  Meanwhile, the Oilers are coming off a big win and Mikko Koskinen played well against the Flames.  The question is – did the Oilers finally turn a corner?  Both teams are chasing that last playoff spot, so this is a big game for both clubs.  I wouldn’t bet the farm on it, but I can’t go against my buddy Bruce Boudreau at home.  So, I’m taking the Canucks and the spread at +1.5 on the puckline.

The Cherry Pick:  Vancouver Canucks +1.5 goals at -192 (puckline)
