Ducks Go for Fourth-Straight Win Monday

Anaheim Ducks Nashville Predators NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs

Frederik Andersen has not singlehandedly won three-straight games for the Anaheim Ducks, but he has certainly played a very big part in digging his team out of a 0-2 hole against the Nashville Predators. The Ducks have really started hitting their stride since making the goaltending change from John Gibson to Andersen after Game 2 and can wrap things up in Tennessee Monday night.

Shark Bites
  • The Ducks are 4-0 SU in their last four games on the road.
  • The Predators are 2-5 SU in their last seven games after a loss.
  • The Ducks are 6-2 SU in their last eight games in Nashville.

Online book Bovada is presently offering the Ducks at -120 in moneyline markets while the Predators come in at EVEN odds and both sides of the 5-goal total are currently -110.

Andersen is 3-0 with a 1.00 goals against average and .966 save percentage in three starts versus the Preds in the series. The Dane stopped 27 shots in Anaheim’s 5-2 win in Game 5 and improved to 7-1 with a 2.16 goals against average and a .931 save percentage in nine career appearances in the regular season and playoffs combined. Makes you wonder why Bruce Boudreau didn’t go with him off the bat.

The Preds have been tepid since starting the series with a pair of 3-2 wins in California. The Ducks have been tough to score on when they are forced to kill penalties all season long, but the Preds must capitalize on the man advantage. The Predators are 0-14 on the power play in the past three games and are just 1-22 in the series.
