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 2.2 goals per game and are killing 82.9 percent of their opponents power plays. John Gibson has given up 19 goals on 262 shots faced and Ryan Miller has allowed five goals on 62 shots. The Anaheim Ducks have allowed three or less goals in 10 of their first 12 games.

Reilly Smith leads Vegas with seven goals, Max Pacioretty has eight assists and Mark Stone has 35 shots on goal.

Marc-Andre Fleury has given up 24 goals on 345 shots faced and Malcolm Subban has allowed two goals on 14 shots. The Vegas Golden Knights have allowed four or more goals in five of their last 10 games.
The Ducks are 8-20 in their last 28 games as a road underdog, 4-0 in their last 4 games playing on 0 days rest and 1-4 in their last 5 road games. The Golden Knights are 23-5 in their last 28 Sunday games, 5-2 in their last 7 games as a favorite and 4-1 in their last 5 vs. Pacific. The over is 8-2 in Ducks last 10 games playing on 0 days rest. The over is 4-1 in Golden Knights last 5 home games. The Ducks are 0-4 in the last 4 meetings. The under is 6-0 in the last 6 meetings.
The Vegas Golden Knights have won seven of the eight meetings against the Anaheim Ducks, and they're catching them on the end of a back to back. The Ducks are playing some solid hockey and have been getting after it defensively, but I often blindly back Vegas at home and it's paid off in a big way these last couple of years. The Anaheim Ducks also haven't had much success at all as a road underdog, despite their win last night against Colorado. I'll take Vegas to get the nice home win.
