New Jersey Devils vs Vancouver Canucks live stream: The New Jersey Devils’ newfound offensive display will be put to the test Wednesday night as they kick off a three-game Western Canada trek against the Vancouver Canucks. New Jersey comes into the trek ranked third in the NHL in goals per game, making it no surprise that the Devils have eight wins in 10 games to open the campaign. But the Canucks are no slouch themselves, with four wins and an overtime loss over their previous five games.

While much of the focus in New Jersey has been on No. 1 pick Nico Hischier, there’s another rookie in the fold who has been even better so far. Defenceman Will Butcher has provided a playmaking element from the back end, racking up a team-high 11 assists through the first 10 games of his career. New Jersey hopes his continued success will help them halt a trend that has seen them win just 14 of their last 51 games against teams with winning records.
You know you’re on a special run when you go 6-3-2 in your first 11 games despite having Derek Dorsett as your leading goal-scorer in that span. But the Canucks have been getting measurable contributions from a number of sources – including rookie Brock Boeser, who leads the team with nine points in eight games. But Boeser is considered questionable for this one after sitting out Monday’s loss to Dallas with a foot injury.
