The Anaheim Ducks are averaging 2.49 goals per game, 4.03 goals against per game, 16% on the power play, and 73.4% on the penalty kill. Trevor Zegras has led the Ducks with 21 goals, 34 assists, and 152 shots on goal this season. The projected starting goalie for Anaheim is John Gibson, who is 13-24-7 this season with a 3.89 goals against average and a .902 save percentage.

Calgary was out shot by a total of 40-26 and went 0-3 on the power play in the win. The Calgary Flames are averaging 3.03 goals per game, 3.03 goals against per game, 19% on the power play, and 81.3% on the penalty kill.

Anaheim is 18-40 in their last 58 Friday games and 0-5 in their last 5 games against the Pacific. The under is 5-1-1 in Anaheim’s last 7 games. Calgary is 2-5 in their last 7 games and 0-4 in their last 4 home games. The over is 15-7-1 in Calgary’s last 23 games against the Pacific. The under is 11-5-1 in these two teams last 17 head to head meetings.
Calgary comes into this game on a two game winning streak and is playing much better than they were last week, while Anaheim has lost three of their last four games. Anaheim has only scored nine goals in their last four games, but will be facing a Calgary team that hasn’t been scoring much either. I think we are going to see more of a defensive battle in this matchup, so I like the under here.
