Ducks Tough to Beat on Home Ice

Corey Perry Anaheim Ducks NHL

The Anaheim Ducks finally ended a three-game losing skid with a 7-1 beating of the New Jersey Devils on Monday. The Ducks will look to stay on the Los Angeles Kings’ heels in the Pacific Division with a win over the New York Rangers on home ice Wednesday.

Shark Bites
  • The visiting team is 2-8 SU in the last 10 games between the Rangers and Ducks.
  • The Rangers are 13-1 SU in their last 14 games after a loss.
  • The Ducks are 7-3 SU in their last 10 games against teams with a winning record.

The Ducks are currently -155 in moneyline markets at online book Bovada while the visiting Rangers are +125. The total is currently tabbed at 5 with OVER at -130 and UNDER at EVEN odds.

The Ducks used their recent 11-game winning streak to surge to the top of the Pacific Division standings, but their subsequent three-game skid dropped them behind the Kings and they have a four-point deficit entering Wednesday’s action.

Home ice has been a huge advantage for the Ducks of late as they’ve gone 9-1 SU in their previous 10 games at the Honda Center. Their last loss at home was a 2-1 shootout defeat versus the Washington Capitals last week.

The Rangers have lost back-to-back games for the first time since mid-December after falling 3-2 to the Detroit Red Wings and 5-3 to the Pittsburgh Penguins in their last two efforts. Their recent drought has dropped them to third in the Metropolitan Division and the Blueshirts are just three points up on the Penguins entering Wednesday’s slate.

Steve Zipay of Newsday has confirmed that Antti Raanta will get the start in the crease for the Rangers Wednesday. The Finn has been better of late and has won four of his previous five starts.
