The Anaheim Ducks and the Colorado Avalanche meet in NHL action from the Ball Arena on Tuesday night.
The Anaheim Ducks will be out to bounce back from a 3-1 loss to San Jose last time out. Rickard Rakell and Max Comtois lead the Ducks in scoring with 19 points apiece, with Rakell logging a team-high 13 assists while Comtois has a team-high 9 goals this season. Cam Fowler and Kevin Shattenkirk each have double-digit assists for the Ducks this season as well. As a team, Anaheim is averaging 2.2 goals per game on 27.8 shots against per game with a 12.3% success rate on the power play while allowing 3.2 goals per game on 29.3 shots against per game with a 75.9% success rate on the PK this season.
The Colorado Avalanche will look to build on their 4-1 win over the Los Angeles Kings last time out. Mikko Rantanen leads the Avs in scoring with 28 points including a team-high 13 goals and 15 assists while Nathan MacKinnon has 24 points with a team-high 17 assists. Nazem Kadri, Sam Girard, Gabriel Landeskog, Andre Burakovsky and Cale Makar all have double-digit assist totals for Colorado this season. As a team, Colorado is averaging 3 goals per game on 34.1 shots per game with a 21.6% success rate on the power play while allowing 2.3 goals per game on 25 shots per game with an 87.3% success rate on the penalty kill this season.
Anaheim is 1-4 in their last 5 road games and 1-5 in their last 6 games against a team with a winning record while the over is 3-1-1 in their last 5 games as an underdog. Colorado is 5-2 in their last 7 games overall and 9-4 in their last 13 home games while the under is 4-0 in their last 4 games as a favorite. The road team is 6-2 in the last 8 meetings between these two teams.
It’s weird, but the Ducks seem to get up for some of the higher end teams on their schedule, teams like Colorado and Vegas and as hard as these bigger teams try, they can never really get away from the Ducks. I mean the four meetings this season have been Anaheim wins or games that have gone past 60 minutes, so I’ll lean towards Anaheim and the major plus money, as they may be able to catch the Avs napping here.
