The Anaheim Ducks and Vegas Golden Knights meet Saturday in NHL action at the T-Mobile Arena.
The Anaheim Ducks look for a bounce back showing after losing their opener to Vegas. The Anaheim Ducks are averaging two goals per game and are scoring on zero percent of their power play opportunities. Maxime Comtois leads Anaheim with two goals, Sam Steel has one assist and Danton Heinen has three shots on goal. Defensively, the Anaheim Ducks are allowing five goals per game and are killing 100 percent of their opponents power plays. John Gibson has given up four goals on 28 shots faced.
The Vegas Golden Knights look for another win after beating the Ducks in their season opener. The Vegas Golden Knights are averaging five goals per game and are scoring on zero percent of their power play opportunities. Mark Stone leads Vegas with one goal, Alec Martinez has one assist and Max Pacioretty has five shots on goal. Defensively, the Vegas Golden Knights are allowing two goals per game and are killing 100 percent of their opponents power plays. Robin Lehner has given up two goals on 22 shots faced.
The Ducks are 20-41 in their last 61 road games and 7-2 in their last 9 Saturday games. The Golden Knights are 16-5 in their last 21 home games and 24-10 in their last 34 overall. The over is 5-2 in Ducks last 7 overall. The under is 7-1-1 in Golden Knights last 9 overall. The Ducks are 0-5 in the last 5 meetings in Vegas and 1-8 in the last 9 meetings. The home team is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings. The favorite is 8-1 in the last 9 meetings.
The Anaheim Ducks simply didn't look good in their season opener against Vegas, and it's a similar result as what we've seen in past contests between these two teams. The Vegas Golden Knights have also been one of the better home teams in the league since joining the league and they'll dominate lesser competition more times than not. I'm not stepping in front of Vegas right now. I'll lay the PL for max betting value here.
