The Anaheim Ducks and Vancouver Canucks meet Tuesday in NHL action at the Rogers Arena.

The Anaheim Ducks look for a big road win after splitting their last 10 games. The Anaheim Ducks are averaging 2.3 goals per game and are scoring on 16.7 percent of their power play opportunities. Jakob Silfverberg leads Anaheim with 23 goals, Ryan Getzlaf has 34 assists and Adam Henrique has 115 shots on goal. Defensively, the Anaheim Ducks are allowing three goals per game and are killing 79.1 percent of their opponents power plays. John Gibson has given up 146 goals on 1,729 shots faced and Ryan Miller has allowed 44 goals on 515 shots. The Anaheim Ducks have allowed three or more goals in six of their last eight games.

The Vancouver Canucks could also use a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Vancouver Canucks are averaging 2.7 goals per game and are scoring on 16.2 percent of their power play opportunities. Elias Pettersson leads Vancouver with 27 goals, Bo Horvat has 30 assists and Brock Boeser has 188 shots on goal. Defensively, the Vancouver Canucks are allowing three goals per game and are killing 80.8 percent of their opponents power plays. Jacob Markstrom has given up 156 goals on 1,799 shots faced and Thatcher Demko has allowed 19 goals on 178 shots. The Vancouver Canucks have allowed three or more goals in six of their last nine games.

The Ducks are 5-17 in their last 22 road games, 3-11 in their last 14 games as a road underdog and 0-4 in their last 4 games playing on 2 days rest. The Canucks are 8-17 in their last 25 games as a favorite, 7-16 in their last 23 games as a home favorite and 3-7 in their last 10 games playing on 1 days rest. The Ducks are 6-2 in the last 8 meetings and the favorite is 6-2 in the last 8 meetings. The under is 35-15-2 in Ducks last 52 road games. The under is 14-3 in Canucks last 17 overall.

Neither of these teams are playing consistent hockey and it's hard to get a feel for either side, especially when neither team has much to play for with the playoffs all but out of reach. With that said, the home team has won seven of the last 10 meetings between the Ducks and Canucks, and the Ducks have been fade material on the road pretty much all season long. I'd give the edge to the Canucks because of home ice, but there's better options on Tuesday's card than this one.

Pick:
Vancouver Canucks -136
