The Anaheim Ducks and Detroit Red Wings meet Sunday in NHL action at the Little Caesars Arena. The Anaheim Ducks look to rebound from a 1-3-1 start. The Detroit Red Wings look to build on their 2-0-2 start.
The Anaheim Ducks are averaging 3 goals per game and are scoring on 16.7 percent of their power play opportunities. Troy Terry leads Anaheim with 3 goals, Mason McTavish has 4 assists and Frank Vatrano has 14 shots on goal.

Ville Husso has given up 5 goals on 65 shots faced, and Alex Nedeljkovic has allowed 6 goals on 68 shots.
The Anaheim Ducks haven’t played terribly bad through the first week or so, but they can’t finish games and their defense eventually lets them down. The Detroit Red Wings have been highly impressive offensively through 4 games, and they’re a lot more competitive than they were last season. The Red Wings continue to play until the final whistle and confidence has to be on the rise with them earning points in each of their first four games. I like what I’m seeing from the Red Wings up to this point. I’ll lay the juice.
