The Weigh In
The Ducks host the Jets on Monday at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California with the opening face-off slated for 10:05 PM ET. According to NHL betting odds Anaheim is is -200 money line home favorite and the posted total is 5.5. The Jets have defeated the Ducks in 5 of their last 6 meetings. Anaheim is currently on top of the Pacific Division and is 2nd overall in the Western Conference. Winnipeg is last in the Central Division and is 12th overall in the West.
Back on Top of Division Again
The Anaheim Ducks have regained the top spot in the Pacific once again after temporarily relinquishing the lead to the San Jose Sharks. Although they have a very precarious 1-point lead over the Sharks, the Ducks have 2-games in hand on San Jose, with 8 regular season games left to play. They also trail the Western Conference leading St. Louis Blues by just 3-points. Tonight will be the first of a 3-game in 5-day home stand for the Ducks. Anaheim has been a rock solid 25-11 versus the money line at the Honda Center this season. The Ducks enter tonight having won 3 of their last 4, and have earned at least 1-point in each of those last 4-games. Tonight will be the Ducks 3rd game over the last 4-days, and they've gone an excellent 20-6 in their last 26 in that exact situation.
Trying to Stay Motivated
Although the Winnipeg Jets haven't been mathematically eliminated from the Eastern Conference playoff race, their chances are remote at best. Tonight will be their 4th of a 5-game in 9-day road trip for Winnipeg which has seen them go 1-2 thus far. The Jets have basically played themselves out of the playoff race in the last few weeks going 3-10 versus the money line in their last 13-games. Winnipeg has gone under the total in 13 of 18 road games this season versus an opponent with a winning record. The Jets have also gone under the total in 8 of 9 road games this season after allowing 3 or more goals in each of their last 2-games.
