The previous game between those two opponents was held on December 14th, 2021 and ended in a 4-3 win for the Vancouver Canucks. Bo Horvat was the one of the reasons for the Canucks’s triumph back then. He spent 18:15 on the ice, earning 2 points, by scoring 2 goals. For the Blue Jackets Eric Robinson finished with 2 points on the night. He stayed 14:31 skating and scored 2 goals. The Canucks’ triumph may also be attributed to the team’s netminder. Jaroslav Halak managed to stop 20 of the 23 shots, which was enough to seal the victory. His colleague on the other end Elvis Merzlikins was tasked with 39 attempts on his goal and allowed 4 to roll past him. There has been a clear favorite when it comes to the latest five encounters, as Columbus Blue Jackets won 4 and the Vancouver Canucks triumphed once in the process.
