The Anaheim Ducks will aim for their second straight win when they host the New York Islanders in an inter-conference battle Wednesday night from the Honda Center. The Islanders are coming off a 5-2 road loss to the Predators, and the Ducks registered a 3-2 road win over the Blues in their previous action. The Ducks won both meetings against the Islanders last season.

Islanders Open Road Trip with Loss to Predators

The New York Islanders will resume a four-game road trip in this one. They opened their road trip with a 5-2 loss to the Predators on Saturday. Andrew Ladd made his season debut on Saturday after dealing with an injury and he found the back of the net. The 13-year veteran left-winger is coming off a disappointing season that saw him net only 12 goals and 17 assists in 73 games. Ladd has tallied 12 points in 22 career games against the Ducks.  Mathew Barzal added another assist in the defeat on Saturday, and he has now collected at least one point in all four games for a total of one goal and four assists. The reigning Rookie of the Year notched a goal and an assist in two games against the Ducks last season. The Islanders two wins this season came against the Hurricanes, followed by a 4-0 home win against the Sharks. They are averaging 2.8 goals in four games on the season.

The Islanders are splitting the duties in net between Robin Lehner and Thomas Greiss this season. Lehner has conceded four goals in two games, while Greiss has allowed five goals in two games. Goaltending could be an issue this season. The Islanders have allowed a total of 10 goals in four games on the season.

Ducks Edge Blues as Strong Start Continues

The Anaheim Ducks are enjoying a strong start to the season. They have collected 9 out of a possible 12 points, and they are coming off a 3-2 road win over the Blues on Sunday night. Hampus Lindholm played a key role in Sunday’s victory, collecting two assists on 22 minutes of ice time. The fifth-year defenseman is red hot, notching six points over his last four games, placing him second in team scoring. Lindholm scored a hat trick in his lone game against the Islanders last season. Ducks’ point leader Jakob Silfverberg scored for the second consecutive game on Sunday, and he has tallied three goals along with four assists in six games. The 28-year old left-winger only has two points in 12 career games against the Islanders. The Ducks have scored less than four goals in all six games, and they are averaging 2.7 goals on the season, ranking them 21st overall. Silfverberg and Ryan Getzlaf are both questionable with an injury in this one.

The Ducks are expected to send John Gibson between the pipes in this contest. The 25-year old goaltender is having an outstanding season, sporting a stellar 2.07 GAA and a .944 save percentage accompanied with a 3-1-1 record. Anaheim is holding opponents to 2.2 goals per game, good for third in the NHL.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

I am siding with the Ducks in this one. The Ducks are off to a strong 4-1-0-1 start to the season, and their goaltending has been very sharp. In addition, Anaheim scored a combined eight goals in their two games against the Islanders last season, and they won both meetings. Furthermore, Ducks’ goalie John Gibson has excelled against the Islanders, allowing only six goals in three career meetings. The Ducks power play is also clicking early, operating at a solid 26.7% clip.

Prediction: Anaheim Ducks

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

The under is a strong play in this one. The Ducks have allowed two or fewer goals in regulation in five out of their six games on the season, and the under is 4-1 in their last five games overall. Furthermore, the Ducks are not a high-scoring team and they rank last in the NHL with an average of 26 shots on goal per game, plus the under is 3-0-1 in their last four home games against the Islanders.

Prediction: Under

Full-Game Prop Bet
Rating:

The under on the Islanders team total is a solid option. The Islanders have only scored a combined four goals in their two road games this season. In addition, the Ducks are allowing an average of only 2.2 goals on the season, and the Islanders aren’t generating many shots, ranking 30th in the NHL with an average of 25 shots per game.

Prediction: Islanders Team Total: Under

Half-Time Side Pick
Rating:

I am taking the Ducks on the first period line. The Islanders have struggled to generate offense in the first period this season, netting only one goal while allowing five goals against in four games. In addition, the Ducks have notched five goals in the first period this year while only allowing three goals.

Prediction: Anaheim Ducks 1st Period Line
