The Minnesota Wild and the Anaheim Ducks meet in NHL action from the Honda Center on Friday night.
The Minnesota Wild will look to build on a 3-1 win over Anaheim last time out. Joel Greenway leads the Wild in scoring with 10 points coming on 2 goals and 8 assists while Joel Eriksson Ek and Kirill Kaprizov each have 9 points with Eriksson Ek logging 5 goals and 4 assists and Kaprizov logging 3 goals and 6 helpers. Zach Parise, Ryan Suter and Jonas Brodin each have 6 points with Parise and Brodin each logging a pair of goals with 4 assists while Suter has 6 assists on the year. Kaapo Kahkonen and Cam Talbot continue to split time in goal, with Kahkonen going 4-4 with a 2.65 GAA while Talbot’s got 3 wins in 6 appearances with a 2.40 GAA this season.
The Anaheim Ducks will try to bounce back after their loss to the Wild last time out. Max Comtois leads the Ducks in scoring with 9 points coming on 7 goals with 2 assists while Jakob Silfverberg and Rickard Rakell each have 7 points with Silfverberg logging 3 goals and 4 assists while Rakell has 6 assists on the year. Carter Rowney, Danton Heinen, Hampus Lindholm and Ryan Getzlaf each have 6 points with Rowney logging 6 assists while Heinen has 3 goals, Lindholm has a pair of goals and Getzlaf has a goal and 5 assists this season. John Gibson continues to see the bulk of the action in goal for Anaheim, posting a 5-8 record with 3 shutouts and a 2.38 GAA this season.
Minnesota is 12-5 in their last 17 road games and 1-4 in their last 5 games following a win while the under is 6-2 in their last 8 games as a favorite. Anaheim is 3-7 in their last 10 games overall and 1-4 in their last 5 home games while the under is 12-3-1 in their last 16 games as an underdog. The under is 19-7-2 in the last 28 meetings between these two teams.
I get why you could make a case for either side, as neither side play in really high-scoring games, and in those low scoring games, one bounce could be all the difference. However, I’m not trying to pick a side here in this dumpster of a game, so I’ll back the under here. We hit with it the last time these two met and I think we could see a carbon copy of the last meeting with a low-scoring game maybe in the area of 3-1, so I’ll back the under here.
