The Anaheim Ducks and the Vegas Golden Knights meet in NHL action from the T-Mobile Arena on Friday.
The Anaheim Ducks come into this game looking to snap a six-game losing streak after a 4-2 loss at the hands of the Tampa Bay Lightning last time out. Troy Terry leads the Ducks with 9 points including a team-high 4 goals and 5 assists while Trevor Zegras has 5 points with 4 goals and Ryan Strome and Mason McTavish each have 4 points with Strome putting up 3 assists and McTavish having 4 assists. Frank Vatrano also has 3 goals as well for the Ducks this season. John Gibson has gone 1-4-1 with a 4.26 GAA and an .893 save percentage while Anthony Stolarz is 0-1 with a 4.31 GAA and an .885 save percentage this season.
The Vegas Golden Knights will be looking to build on back-to-back wins after picking up a 4-2 win over San Jose last time out. Jack Eichel, Chandler Stephenson and Jonathan Marchessault each have 7 points with Stephenson and Eichel each logging 3 goals and 4 assists while Marchessault has a team-high 5 goals. Mark Stone and Shea Theodore each have 6 points with a pair of goals and 4 assists. Reilly Smith, William Karlsson and Alex Pietrangelo each have 5 points with Karlsson logging 3 goals while Smith has 4 assists and Pietrangelo has 5 assists. Logan Thompson’s gone 3-2 with a 2.03 GAA and a .931 save percentage while Adin Hill is 3-0 with a 2.00 GAA and a .935 save percentage as well this season.
I get the reasoning for wanting to back an underdog here, but the Anaheim Ducks are simply not a team I’m looking to back in any way, shape or form. Vegas is simply the better team in this matchup and at home they should have no problem dealing with the Ducks here. Give me Vegas -1.5 in a beatdown.
