Where: Honda Center, Anaheim, California
Stream: Watch ESPN , NHL TV
NHL Hockey Betting Odds:
The Canucks fly into this evening’s matchup sporting a 25-25-7 record that ranks hem 4th in the Pacific Division. Unfortunately for Vancouver, their current 57 point tally on the season might be good enough to rank them near the top of the division but it’s also starting to leave them behind in the top 3 race. In fact, the Canucks are currently 9 points behind the 3rd seeded Vegas Golden Knights. With that in mind, it’s clear that Vancouver needs a win over Anaheim this evening. What’s worse is that the Canucks are 3-7 in their last 10 against Anaheim. Fortunately the Ducks don’t look like they’ll pose too much of a problem this evening, seeing as how many games they’ve dropped consecutively. Nevertheless, tonight’s NHL hockey betting odds aren’t quite sure how to feel about this evening’s match.
Players to Watch: Elias Pettersson (25 G, 26 A, 51 PTS.), Bo Horvat (20 G, 24 A, 44 PTS.), and Brock Boeser (19 G, 19 A, 38 PTS.).
The Ducks swim into this Wednesday night’s Pacific matchup sporting a 21-26-9 record that nets them 51 points on the season. That 51 point tally ranks Anaheim dead last in the division and doesn’t give them much hope for the playoffs. On top of that, tonight’s numbers don’t give Anaheim much hope for a win. This is because the Ducks rank dead last in scoring in the league and 23rd in defense. For comparison, the Canucks rank 22nd in scoring and 20th in defense. That’s not overwhelmingly better but it’s still enough to give them the edge despite playing on the road.
Players to Watch: Ryan Getzlaf (11 G, 25 A, 36 PTS.), Adam Henrique (10 G, 18 A, 28 PTS.), and Rickard Rackell (9 G, 17 A, 26 PTS.).
