National Hockey League action on Wednesday evening and a pair of teams from the Pacific Division will square off as the Anaheim Ducks rumble with the Vegas Golden Knights at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. The Ducks enter this game off a 2-1 shootout win at home over the Predators, while the Golden Knights are off a 4-1 loss at Boston. The Knights won the first meeting, which was here at home, by a score of 3-1.

Ducks Surprise The Preds At Home

The Nashville Predators have been the best team in the league in the early part of this year, while the Ducks have struggled, but on Monday night, it was the Ducks that walked away with a 2-1 shootout win at home. After suffering through a miserable seven-game losing streak, the Ducks have now won three of their last five games. The offense is still an issue for them as they have averaged just 1.83 gpg over their previous 12 games. The Ducks got a goal from Ryan Getzlaf (4th) with only 30 seconds left in the 2nd period to take a 1-0 lead. The Preds tied it early in the 3rd, and it stayed that way until Rickard Rakell scored the deciding goal in the shootout.

Grabbing the win was John Gibson, who stopped 34 of the 35 shots that he faced to move to 6-9 with a 2.47 GAA and a .931 save percentage on the year, while out on the road he has gone 2-5 with a 2.72 GAA and a .932 save percentage. In his career, he has gone 1-4 with a 2.56 GAA against the Golden Knights. The Ducks enter this contest ranked 30th in the league in scoring, putting up 2.21 gpg and 8th in goals allowed, giving up 2.74 gpg.

Slow Start Continues For The Knights

In their first year in the league, the Vegas Golden Knights made it all the way to the Stanley Cup Finals before losing to the Capitals. This year, they are playing more like an expansion team as they enter this game in 7th place in the Pacific Division with a 7-11 record. The Golden Knights can’t seem to get on track this year. They come home off a four-game road trip, in which they lost three of the four games on, including the last two. In their last action, they fell to the Boston Bruins by a score of 4-1 and scoring their lone goal was Cody Eakin, which was his 5th of the year.

Absorbing the loss was Malcolm Subban, who allowed four goals on 37 shot attempts to fall to 0-3 with a 3.17 GAA on the year. Marc-Andre Fleury will get the nod in this one, and he has gone 7-8 with a 2.69 GAA and a .895 save percentage on the year, including 4-3 with a 2.28 GAA and a .910 save percentage here at home. In his carer, he has gone 10-4 with a 2.22 GAA against the Ducks. Vegas comes in ranked 29th in the league in scoring at 2.39 gpg and 15th in goals allowed, giving up 2.94 gpg.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

The Golden Knights have not had a good start this year, while the Ducks have been playing better of late. I like the Golden Knights to take this one. They are back home and do play well here, plus we note that Gibson has gone 1-4 with a 2.,56 GAA in his career against the Knights, while Fleury has gone 10-4 with a 2.22 GAA against the Ducks in his career. I will look for the Golden Knights to grab a much-needed win here at home.  

Prediction: Vegas -165

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

This should be a low scoring game as we have two of the worst offensive teams in the league squaring off. We also have Fleury, who has a 2,28 GAA at home and a 2.22 GAA against the Ducks in his career, plus Gibson has a solid 2.56 GAA against the Knights. The Under is 20-7-1 in Anaheim’s last 28 vs. the Pacific and 6-1 in Vegas’ last seven vs. the Western Conference. That seals the deal for me.

Prediction: Under 5.5
