The Line: Vancouver Canucks -109 / Anaheim Ducks -110 -- Over/Under: 5.5
The Vancouver Canucks and Anaheim Ducks meet Wednesday in NHL action at the Honda Center.
The Vancouver Canucks look for a victory after losing five of their last seven games. The Vancouver Canucks are averaging 2.8 goals per game and are scoring on 16.1 percent of their power play opportunities. Elias Pettersson leads Vancouver with 25 goals, Bo Horvat has 24 assists and Brock Boeser has 136 shots on goal. Defensively, the Vancouver Canucks are allowing 3.1 goals per game and are killing 79.8 percent of their opponents power plays. Jacob Markstrom has given up 119 goals on 1,328 shots faced and Thatcher Demko has allowed three goals on 39 shots. The Vancouver Canucks have allowed three or more goals in five of their last seven games.
The Anaheim Ducks could use a win here to snap a seven-game losing streak. The Anaheim Ducks are averaging 2.2 goals per game and are scoring on 13.9 percent of their power play opportunities. Jakob Silfverberg leads Anaheim with 12 goals, Ryan Getzlaf has 25 assists and Adam Henrique has 84 shots on goal. Defensively, the Anaheim Ducks are allowing 3.2 goals per game and are killing 79.7 percent of their opponents power plays. John Gibson has given up 123 goals on 1,434 shots faced and Ryan Miller has allowed 23 goals on 294 shots. The Anaheim Ducks have allowed three or more goals in their last seven games.
The Canucks are 19-41 in their last 60 road games, 16-37 in their last 53 vs. Pacific and 1-4 in their last 5 overall. The Ducks are 22-9 in their last 31 Wednesday games, 1-7 in their last 8 vs. Western Conference and 6-20 in their last 26 overall. The under is 5-1 in Canucks last 6 road games. The over is 7-3-1 in Ducks last 11 vs. Western Conference. The Canucks are 1-4 in the last 5 meetings in Anaheim and 1-5 in the last 6 meetings.
The Vancouver Canucks and the cheap price is probably worth a look when you look at how bad the Anaheim Ducks are playing and the fact they haven't won in forever. However, the Canucks have been awful on the road and haven't ben great defensively, which usually magnifies on the road. If the Anaheim Ducks were to snap this streak any time soon, it would probably be at home against this subpar opponent. I'll give the slight edge to the Ducks on their home ice.
