The Anaheim Ducks hope to snap a mini three-game losing streak and get back on track. The Anaheim Ducks are averaging 2.4 goals per game and are scoring on 23.2 percent of their power plays. Corey Perry leads Anaheim with 28 goals, Rickard Rakell has 20 assists and Ryan Kesler has 145 shots on goal. Defensively, the Anaheim Ducks are allowing 2.3 goals per game and are killing 86.7 percent of their power play chances. Frederik Andersen has allowed 75 goals on 935 shots faced and Anton Khudobin has given up 16 goals on 173 shots. Andersen has allowed seven goals in his last three games.
The Devils are 8-1 in their last 9 vs. Western Conference and 2-6 in their last 8 games playing on 1 days rest. The Ducks are 53-26 in their last 79 Monday games and 8-1 in their last 9 home games. The Devils are 2-6-1 in the last 9 meetings in Anaheim and 0-4 in the last 4 meetings overall.
There's no way you can back the Ducks with the price being what it is. However, the under has hit in five of the last eight meetings between the Devils and Ducks, and the under is 15-6-2 in the Devils last 23 road games. I'll take the under.
