Ducks Go for 9th-Straight Win Wednesday

Anaheim Ducks NHL

No team in the NHL is hotter than the Anaheim Ducks and the high-flying Western Conference club bids for their ninth-straight victory when they host the Montreal Canadiens Wednesday evening.

Shark Bites
  • The Blackhawks are just 1-4 SU in their last five games at Joe Louis Arena.
  • The total has gone UNDER in four of the Red Wings’ last five games.
  • The Blackhawks are 5-2 SU in their last seven games versus teams with a winning record.

At online shop Bovada, the Ducks are presently -220 favorites while the Habs are +175 in moneyline markets. The total is tabbed at 5.5 goals with the OVER priced at +115 and the UNDER presently -145.

The last four wins during the Ducks’ great streak came on home ice with tonight’s tilt versus the Canadiens finishing off a five-game homestand before they set off for a mini two-game trek.

Corey Perry notched a hat trick and one assist in Anaheim’s 4-2 win over the Los Angeles Kings in their last game Sunday. The win moved them to within two points of the Pacific-leading Kings and was the cherry on top of a 12-2 SU February.

The Habs started their California road trip with a 6-2 loss at the San Jose Sharks Monday evening. The Canadiens have been disastrous against the Western Conference of late, posting a 1-13 SU record in their last 14 meetings with teams from the West. Furthermore, the Canadiens have gone just 3-7 SU in their last 10 meetings with the Ducks, including losses in both meetings last season.

The two clubs are clearly headed in opposite directions and that is sure to continue as the season winds down.
