Unbeatable at the Duck Pond

Anaheim has yet to lose in regulation time in their first 19 home games of the season. The Ducks have earned 36 of 38-points possible at home thus far. This will be the final of a 4-game home stand for the Ducks, and they’ve seen all of the first 3 go over the total. They come off a 4-3 overtime win versus the Vancouver Canucks on Sunday. The win was their 3rd in a row, and their 13th in the last 14-games. Anaheim is currently 3rd in the NHL averaging 3.3 goals per game. In their last 3-games they’ve scored 15-goals combined. The Ducks have scored 3-goals or more in 9 of the last 10, 13 of the last 15, and 17 of their last 20-games. Anaheim has gone 6-0 in their last 6-games versus Eastern Conference opponents.

On the Road Again

The Bruins just completed a 3-game home stand that saw them go 2-1, including winning the last 2. Boston has gone 20-8 in their last 28-games overall. This will be the 1st of a 3-game in 4-day road trip for the Bruins. They will be facing the top 3-teams in the Pacific Division in Anaheim, Los Angeles, and San Jose who have a cumulative record of 84-46 (64.6%) versus the money line this season. Boston has gone a stellar 7-1 in their last 8-games versus Pacific Division opponents.
