The Anaheim Ducks and Nashville Predators meet Tuesday in NHL action at the Bridgestone Arena.
The Anaheim Ducks look for a victory after splitting their last six games. The Anaheim Ducks are averaging 2.8 goals per game and are scoring on 5.3 percent of their power play opportunities. Jakob Silfverberg leads Anaheim with five goals, Hampus Lindholm has six assists and Adam Henrique has 23 shots on goal. Defensively, the Anaheim Ducks are allowing 1.8 goals per game and are killing 82.8 percent of their opponents power plays. John Gibson has given up 13 goals on 214 shots faced and Ryan Miller has allowed three goals on 51 shots. The Anaheim Ducks have allowed two or less goals in eight of their first nine games.
The Nashville Predators could use a win after splitting their last eight games. The Nashville Predators are averaging four goals per game and are scoring on 20.7 percent of their power play opportunities. Filip Forsberg leads Nashville with five goals, Ryan Ellis has 10 assists and Roman Josi has 27 shots on goal. Defensively, the Nashville Predators are allowing 3.8 goals per game and are killing 65.4 percent of their opponents power plays. Pekka Rinne has given up 13 goals on 150 shots faced and Juuse Saros has allowed 14 goals on 95 shots. The Nashville Predators have allowed three or more goals in five of their last seven games.
The Ducks are 10-1 in their last 11 Tuesday games, 20-8 in their last 28 overall and 9-20 in their last 29 road games. The Predators are 4-0 in their last 4 Tuesday games, 5-1 in their last 6 games playing on 2 days rest and 10-4 in their last 14 vs. Pacific. The over is 4-0 in Ducks last 4 games playing on 1 days rest. The over is 7-1 in Predators last 8 overall. The Ducks are 2-6 in the last 8 meetings.
The Anaheim Ducks have been so stingy defensively that I'm looking to take a lot of under with them until this streak cools off. The Ducks aren't allowing much of anything from their opponents, easily the best defensive team up to this point and are piling up the unders this season. Six of the last 10 games between the Predators and Ducks have produced five or less goals. The Nashville Predators have the offensive firepower to spoil this bet, but I'll stay true to the Ducks defense and side with the under in another low scoring game between these two clubs.
