The New York Rangers and Anaheim Ducks meet Wednesday in NHL action at the Honda Center. The New York Rangers have split their last 8 games. The Anaheim Ducks have lost 6 of their last 7 games.

The New York Rangers are averaging 2.95 goals per game and are scoring on 23.5 percent of their power play opportunities. Mika Zibanejad leads New York with 10 goals, Artmei Panarin has 17 assists, and Vincent Trocheck has 69 shots on goal. Defensively, the New York Rangers are allowing 2.68 goals per game and are killing 83.1 percent of their opponent’s power plays. Igor Shesterkin has allowed 33 goals on 396 shots faced, and Jaroslav Halak has given up 16 goals on 137 shots.

The Anaheim Ducks are averaging 2.53 goals per game and are scoring on 13.2 percent of their power play opportunities. Trevor Zegras leads Anaheim with 8 goals, Troy Terry has 13 assists and Frank Vatrano has 59 shots on goal. Defensively, the Anaheim Ducks are allowing 4.26 goals per game and are killing 64.2 percent of their opponent’s power plays. John Gibson has given up 57 goals on 521 shots faced, and Anthony Stolarz has allowed 20 goals on 188 shots.

The Rangers are 47-20 in their last 67 vs. a team with a losing record. The Ducks are 4-13 in their last 17 home games and 13-41 in their last 54 overall. The under is 23-9 in Rangers last 32 overall. The under is 5-1 in Ducks last 6 overall. The Rangers are 4-0 in the last 4 meetings. The favorite is 5-1 in the last 6 meetings. The home team is 17-5 in the last 22 meetings.

I’m not excited to back the New York Rangers in the favorite role because they’ve kind of underachieved up to this point, and it doesn’t help with them on the end of a back to back here. However, the Anaheim Ducks are a complete mess right now, with an offense that can’t score and a defense that gets drilled nightly. There’s no reason why the Rangers don’t win this game. I’ll lay the juice with the road team.
