Visitor Dominating in Ducks-Preds Series

Anaheim Ducks NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs

With the series knotted up at two games apiece, the Anaheim Ducks and Nashville Predators travel across the country to California as Game 5 goes at the Honda Center Saturday. The Ducks will be hoping to break the stranglehold the visiting team has had in the series thus far and become the first home team to win a game.

Shark Bites
  • The Ducks are 20-8 SU in their last 28 games after a win.
  • The Predators are 5-2 SU in their last seven games after consecutive losses.
  • The Predators are 2-6 SU in their last eight games with one day off between games.

The goaltending switch from John Gibson to Frederik Andersen has proved fruitful for the Ducks as the Dane has stopped 57 of the 58 shots he has faced in the two wins in Nashville. Gibson, who started games one and two at the Honda Center, allowed six goals as the Ducks lost the opening two games by identical 3-2 scorelines.

The two games in Tennessee painted a different picture as Anaheim was able to outscore its hosts 7-1 to pull things even before heading back to California.

Andrew Cogliano has paced the offense with four points (two goals, two assists) including a goal in Thursday’s 4-1 victory.

After allowing a power play goal in Game 2, the Ducks, owners of the NHL’s best penalty kill in the regular season (87.2 percent) killed off all 11 power plays the Pred had in games three and four.
