Canucks vs Jets | OddsShark Matchup Report
As has been the case virtually all season long, the Canucks were unable to click in both zones at the same time in Thursday night’s 3-0 loss to the Edmonton Oilers. Thatcher Demko turned in one of his best efforts of the season allowing only two goals on 33 shots, but the Canucks offense couldn’t get any of their 30 shots past Mike Smith. With the loss, Vancouver fell to 2-9-2 over its last 13 games including a current four-game losing streak of 0-3-1.
