The Boston Bruins and Anaheim Ducks face off on Sunday in an NHL showdown at the Honda Center. Let's break down this game and give out a prediction.

Can Bruins Continue to Play Well?

Heading into Saturday night’s game against the Los Angeles Kings, the Bruins had a perfect 3-0-0 record and the defense was playing really strong. The Boston Bruins scored three goals on Thursday against the San Jose Sharks and that was enough for the victory. Brad Marchand and Travis Pastrnak both scored a goal. The Boston Bruins overall are averaging 3.0 goals per game, while their defense is giving up 1.33 goals per game. The defense is ranked 2nd, and they are going to need the defense to step up here. David Pastrnak leads the Bruins with 4 goals, Brad Marchand has 2 assists and Trent Frederic has 10 shots on goal. Linus Ullmark has allwoed 2 goals on 48 shots while Jeremy Swayman has allwoed 2 goals on 36 shots. 

Ducks Look to Bounce Back

The Ducks sit with a 1-3 record overall, and they have been disappointing so far this season. In the last game against the Arizona Coyotes, the offense could only manage one goal and that led to the one goal defeat. The Anaheim Ducks on the season are averaging 2.5 goals, while their defense is giving up 3.0 goals per game. The offense is ranked 23rd in the league, while the defense is ranked 13th. Frank Vatrano leads the Ducks with 4 goals, while Mason McTavish and Ryan Strome have combined for 1 goal and 6 points. 

Shane’s Free Pick

The Boston Bruins even on tired legs are going to get the job done here. The Anaheim Ducks offense has been a major issue all season, and they are going to really struggle in this game. Look for the Boston Bruins to have no issue running up the score and that is going to be the difference as the Boston Bruins are going to get the job done. This is going to be an easy victory for the Bruins. Back the Boston Bruins -1.5 to cash.
