The Colorado Avalanche and the Anaheim Ducks meet in NHL action from the Honda Center on Sunday.
The Colorado Avalanche will look to build off of a 3-2 win over Anaheim in their last matchup. Nathan MacKinnon leads the Avs in scoring with 7 points coming on 2 goals and a team-high 5 assists while Mikko Rantanen has a team-high 4 goals and 2 assists for his 6 points. Gabriel Landeskog, Cale Makar and Samuel Girard each have 5 points with Girard and Makar each having 5 assists while Landeskog has 3 goals and 2 assists. Phillip Grubauer’s seen the bulk of the goaltending work for the Avs, logging a 3-1 record with 8 goals against on 116 shots against for a 2.00 GAA this season.
The Anaheim Ducks will look to bounce back after their loss to Colorado last time out. Carter Rowney, Nicolas Deslauriers and Max Comtois each have a team-high 3 points with Comtois logging 3 goals while Deslauriers has a pair of goals and an assist and Rowney has a team-high 3 assists this season. Ryan Getzlaf and Sam Steel each have a pair of assists as well for Anaheim this season. John Gibson’s seen the majority of the starts in goal for Anaheim with a 1-3 record, a 2.26 GAA and 9 goals allowed on 127 shots against this season.
Colorado is 16-5 in their last 21 road games and 14-5 in their last 19 games as a road favorite while the over is 11-4 in their last 15 games overall. Anaheim is 1-5 in their last 6 games overall and 1-6 in their last 7 games as an underdog while the under is 4-0 in their last 4 games overall. Colorado is 15-31 in the last 46 meetings between these two teams and 9-19 in the last 28 meetings between these two teams in Anaheim.
I’m trying to get to a point where I could make a case for the plus money and I’m just not there. The Ducks continue to struggle offensively and when it occasionally shows up, the defense falters. It’s a lose-lose situation for Anaheim right now. Colorado is rolling along with now and I expect a stronger effort for the Avs after the rest day. Give me Colorado on the puck line to get the price on Colorado down here.
