Anaheim Ducks (27-19-11; 29-28 ATS; 22-34-1 O/U) vs. Detroit Red Wings (22-23-9; 32-22 ATS; 24-30 O/U)

The Detroit Red Wings will aim for their second straight win when they host the Anaheim Ducks in an inter-conference clash Tuesday night from the Little Caesars Arena. The Ducks were edged 3-2 by the Sharks in their latest action, and the Red Wings recorded a 5-4 overtime win against the Capitals on Sunday. This marks the first meeting this season, and each team recorded one win in last year’s season series.

Ducks Squander Late Lead in Loss to Sharks

The Anaheim Ducks could not hold a late two-goal lead in their tough 3-2 shootout loss to the Sharks on Sunday night. Ondrej Kase had a strong night with a goal and an assist for his fifth point in his last four games. The 22-year old right-winger is quietly having a strong season, posting 15 goals along with 12 assists in 42 games. Ryan Getzlaf was held off the scoresheet in Sunday’s loss, however overall the Ducks’ captain is playing well, recording four points in his last four games. The 12-year veteran is averaging just over a point per game with 35 points in 32 games. Anaheim has been decent as of late, posting a 5-3-2 in their last ten games to put them just outside of the final playoff spot in the conference. The Ducks are scoring an average of 2.8 goals per game, ranking them 23rd in the NHL.

The Ducks will likely send John Gibson between the pipes again in this contest. The 24-year old goaltender is playing well right now, and he has improved his GAA to 2.60 to go with a .923 save percentage and a 19-14-6 record on the season. Anaheim is holding opponents to 2.8 goals per game, positioning them 12th in the NHL.

Red Wings Snap Skid with Win Over Caps

The Detroit Red Wings outlasted the Capitals for a 5-4 overtime road win on Sunday afternoon. Tomas Tatar led the way with a two goal effort to give him 14 goals on the season. Red Wings’ point leader Dylan Larkin extended his point streak to three games with two assists in Sunday’s win. The 21-year old speedy centerman hasn’t found his scoring touch, however, he leads the Wings in assists and has 42 points in 54 games on the season. Larkin has two points in four career games against the Ducks. Anthony Mantha found the back of the net for his team-leading 19th goal of the season in Sunday’s victory. The 23-year old right-winger has tallied three goals in his last two games and is up to 33 points in 52 games on the season. The Red Wings snapped a three game losing streak in Sunday’s win, and they own a 4-6 record in their last ten games. They are scoring an average of 2.6 goals per game, ranking them 24th in the NHL.

Detroit has been rotating between Jimmy Howard and Petr Mrazek in net as of late. Howard owns a 2.82 GAA with a .911 save percentage, while Mrazek possesses a 2.99 GAA with a .906 save percentage. The Red Wings are allowing an average of three goals per game, positioning them 23rd overall.

Trends:

The Anaheim Ducks are:

  • 4-0 in their last 4 Tuesday games.
  • 10-4 in their last 14 games against a team with a losing record.

The Detroit Red Wings are:

  • 1-6 in their last 7 home games.
  • 0-5 in their last 5 games against a team with a losing record.
  • 1-4 in their last 5 games following a win.

I am taking the Ducks in this one. The Red Wings defensive play has been very shaky, allowing a combined 17 goals in their last four games. Also, the Ducks have received good goaltending as John Gibson has only allowed a total of four goals in his last three games. Furthermore, Detroit has not been strong on home ice, losing six out of their last seven home games. The Ducks need a win as they are sitting just outside of a playoff spot, and they now have a healthy lineup.
