The Anaheim Ducks and the Vegas Golden Knights meet in NHL action from the T-Mobile Arena on Tuesday night.
The Anaheim Ducks will look to build on a 2-1 shootout win over the San Jose Sharks in their last matchup. Carter Rowney and Max Comtois each have 6 points with Rowney logging 6 assists while Comtois has 5 goals for the Ducks this season. Nicolas Deslauriers and Jakob Silfverberg each have 3 goals and 2 assists for their 5 points while Hampus Lindholm has 2 goals and 3 assists for his 5 points and Ryan Getzlaf has 5 assists this season. John Gibson’s started the bulk of the work for Anaheim this season in goal, grabbing 4 wins with a pair of shutouts with a 2.48 GAA.
The Vegas Golden Knights will look to build on their 4-3 win over the Los Angeles Kings in their last outing. Mark Stone has 14 points with 3 goals and 11 assists while Max Pacioretty has 11 points with 6 goals and 5 assists. Shea Theodore has 9 points with 3 goals and 6 assists and Alex Tuch and Jonathan Marchessault each have 8 points with Tuch logging 3 goals and 5 assists while Marchessault has a pair of goals and 6 assists this season. Robin Lehner and Marc-Andre Fleury have split the goaltending duties for Vegas this season, with Lehner picking up 3 wins with a 2.96 GAA while Fleury has a 1.25 GAA with a 4-0 record and a shutout this season.
Anaheim is 2-5 in their last 7 games against a team with a winning record and 4-9 in their last 13 games as an underdog while the under is 9-2-1 in their last 12 games overall. Vegas is 30-12 in their last 42 games overall and 21-6 in their last 27 home games while the over is 5-0 in their last 5 games following a win. Anaheim is 2-12 in the last 14 meetings between these two teams and 0-6 in the last 6 meetings between these two teams in Vegas.
I get why the plus money would be worth looking as there’s a lot of it there, but then you realize it’s attached to the Anaheim Ducks and nobody wants that. The Ducks simply can’t score no matter how hard they try and that’s not going to change against a Vegas team that can smother you on the defensive end and can light the lamp at will on the other end. I just don’t see any way that Anaheim keeps this one reasonably close, so I’ll lay the -1.5 with Vegas on the puck line to get the price down here.
