The Anaheim Ducks could use some consistency after splitting their last 10 games. The Ducks are averaging 2.6 goals per game and are scoring on 24.4 percent of their power play opportunities. Corey Perry leads Anaheim with four goals, Cam Fowler has four assists and Andrew Cogliano has 24 shots on goal.

John Gibson has given up 25 goals on 291 shots faced and Jonathan Bernier has allowed four goals on 56 shots. The Anaheim Ducks have scored three or more goals in five of their last eight games.
The Flames are 1-5 in their last 6 games playing on 0 days rest and 17-35 in their last 52 road games. The Ducks are 38-13 in their last 51 Sunday games and 2-6 in their last 8 games playing on 1 days rest. The Flames are 1-28 in the last 29 meetings in Anaheim and 15-37 in the last 52 meetings overall.
The Flames should be motivated for a bounce back performance after just getting waxed by the Kings last night. However, the Flames have just one win in the last 29 games played in Anaheim. That's a trend that doesn't even seem real. Talk about a real house of horrors. I have to side with the Ducks at home here.
