Ducks in Must Win Situation Tonight

After dropping the first two games of their first round series to the Predators by identical 3-2 scores at home, the Anaheim Ducks can pretty much call it a season if they can’t get the job done tonight. A loss would mean needing to win four straight games, which would include two on the road in Nashville.

Shark Bites
  • Anaheim is 4-1 in its last five games on the road.
  • The total has gone OVER in nine of Anaheim's last 12 games when playing Nashville.
  • The total has gone OVER in seven of Nashville's last 10 games at home.

The Ducks are no stranger to adversity, and it’s rare to see them lose three games in a row as they’ve gone 7-1 in their last eight games after consecutive losses. The Preds, meanwhile, haven’t been successful at nailing down three straight wins lately as they’re 1-5 in their last six games after consecutive wins.

Despite the 0-2 series hole and being on the road, Anaheim opened as a -110 favorite. This is a spot that they’ve responded well to over the course of the season, as they’ve gone 15-5 in their last 20 games as road favorites. Looking at a historical trend, the Ducks are 6-1 in their last seven playoff games as road favorites. As home underdogs, Nashville is just 2-8 in their last 10 games.
