The Vegas Golden Knights are had and shoulders the better team here and should be considerable favorites. However, the Anaheim Ducks have been competitive despite their recent losing streak and they've hung around with Vegas in the past. In fact, the Ducks shutout the Golden Knights in the last meeting, and four of the last five meetings have been decided by one goal, with two of those contests going to overtime. Give me the Ducks and the PL for insurance.
