The Coach's NHL Saturday Night - *SPECIAL OFFER*
(NHL) NY Rangers vs. Vancouver, 12/13/2014 5:00 PM, Score: 5 - 1
Money Line: -130.00 Vancouver (Home)
Result: Loss
The Vancouver Canucks are looking to end a three game skid tonight as they're hosting the New York Rangers. The visitors are opening a four game road trip hoping for better luck than they've had on the road recently, but I expect them to come up short against a very capable home team.

Here are my keys to the game:

1. Ryan Miller - The Canucks are coming back home to Vancouver after a seven game road trip, and I doubt anyone is more excited about playing on home ice once again than Ryan Miller. The veteran has quickly made Rogers Arena his own since coming over from the Blues, winning seven of his eight posting a 2.20 GAA. He's allowed only one goal over his last two starts in front of the home fans.

2. Road Woes - The Rangers have the worst road record in the NHL this season and have won only one of their last six on the road. They've also dropped five of the last seven meetings in Vancouver.

3. X-Factor - The Rangers have picked up the win only twice over the last seven meetings in Vancouver.

Selection: This is a play on the Vancouver Canucks (5*)
