Anaheim Ducks vs. Nashville Predators
There’s some mojo working in Anaheim right now. The team is 8-6-0 at the moment, while last season it took until mid-December for the team to record 8 wins. The defining moment of the Ducks season so far has been a 6-game winning streak that included 4 straight road wins and victories over the Boston Bruins and last season’s Stanley Cup champion Vegas Golden Knights. Frank Vatrano has been powering this team to start the year, co-leading the team with 15 points and leading the Ducks with 11 goals, meaning he’s already halfway to his goal total from last season. And tonight’s projected starting goalie John Gibson is having quite a bounceback year so far, with a 2.21 GAA and .926 SV%.
The Nashville Predators, on the other hand, are looking like they’re in for a long season. The team’s on a 1-5 run and hasn’t exactly been losing to top-tier squads, as seen with their 7-5 loss to the Arizona Coyotes. This has been a bottom-10 team defensively, allowing 3.5 goals per game. The team has also been abysmal on the penalty kill, with 68.09% ranking 31st in the league. Projected goalie Juuse Saros is having an off year with 3.24 GAA and a 0.895 save percentage. Nashville definitely has some talent on offense, with players such as Filip Forsberg (11 points, 6 goals) generating scoring. But the team’s overall inconsistency as of late and subpar defense makes it tough for me to believe they can pull off a win. Add in the fact that Anaheim is 4-2 on the road this season and I’m liking the Ducks to win this one straight up.
