Mal VAN VALKENBURG REVIEW-JOURNAL, 48-39-3 (overall record)

Today's best bet: Vancouver Canucks-LA KINGS (over 5½ goals)

\u25B6 Only the first game of the series went under the total. These two teams have averaged nearly nine goals a game the past three games and that trend should continue. The teams are combining for at least eight power plays per game and that will help scoring. These teams are combining for at least 50 shots a game. The recipe is here for the total to go over the number.
