The Anaheim Ducks and the Colorado Avalanche meet in NHL action from the Ball Arena on Saturday night.
The Anaheim Ducks will look to bounce back after letting a golden opportunity slip away in a 3-2 OT loss to Colorado last time out.
Adam Henrique opened the scoring for Anaheim in the dying seconds of the opening period before Jakob Silfverberg doubled the lead just 2:22 into the second period. Colorado would pull a goal back thanks to Valeri Nichushkin with just over five minutes to go in the second and Brandon Saad would tie things up at two apiece just 2:37 later. Neither side would break the deadlock in the 3rd, so it was off to overtime where Nichushkin would complete the comeback for the Avs 2:45 into the extra period, sealing the deal for Colorado.
Philipp Grubauer got the win to improve to 12-6 on the year after stopping 26 of the 28 shots faced in the winning effort while John Gibson ended up with the loss, falling to 5-10-5 after giving up all 3 goals on 34 shots in defeat.
Anaheim is 23-47 in their last 70 road games and 0-4 in their last 4 games against a team with a winning record while the under is 5-2 in the last 7 third games of a three games in four nights situation. Colorado is 5-2 in their last 7 home games and 14-6 in their last 20 games against a team with a winning percentage below .400 while the over is 4-1 in their last 5 games playing on no rest. The road team is 5-1 in the last 6 meetings between these two teams.
I feel bad for anyone who had the Ducks on the ML as it was a good play, it was just Anaheim being Anaheim and finding a new way to lose a hockey game. With that said, the +1.5 with Anaheim cashed and I think we can ride that again here. The Avs and the Ducks both continue to play close games and I think another tight one is brewing here. I’ll take Anaheim +1.5 in this one.
