The Vancouver Canucks came out on top in their last clash against the Pittsburgh Penguins, winning 5-1 on 10/28/2022. Their best skater was Bo Horvat, spending 19:27 on the ice. He sent six shots towards the opponents’ net, and two of those made it through the goalie. Rickard Rakell tried his best for the Penguins. He scored one goal out of eight shots on goal in 21:11 of playing time. The Vancouver’s netminder Spencer Martin’s impact on the game is not to be underestimated, as he deflected all but one of the 35 shots on his goal. Tristan Jarry was between the sticks for the Penguins and parried 24 of all the 28 shots he faced, but that proved insufficient for the win. There is no clear favorite when it comes to the latest five encounters, as the Pittsburgh Penguins won three and the Vancouver Canucks triumphed twice in the process.
