The Anaheim Ducks and the Chicago Blackhawks meet in NHL action from the United Center on Saturday night.
The Anaheim Ducks will try to bounce back from a 7-3 loss to Minnesota last time out. Troy Terry leads the Ducks in scoring with 36 points including a team-high 22 goals while Trevor Zegras has 29 points with 10 goals and 19 assists. Sonny Milano has 25 points while Ryan Getzlaf has 24 points this season with Getzlaf logging a team-high 22 assists on the year. John Gibson’s seen the bulk of the work in goal for Anaheim and is 12-9-6 with a 2.64 GAA and a .917 save percentage this season.
The Chicago Blackhawks will look to build on their 3-2 OT win over Montreal last time out. Patrick Kane leads the Blackhawks with 33 points including 8 goals and 25 assists while Seth Jones has 25 points including 22 assists and Alex DeBrincat also has 30 points with a team-high 23a goals this season. Marc-Andre Fleury’s gone 12-11-2 with a 2.84 GAA and a .911 save percentage in goal for Chicago this year while Kevin Lankinen is 2-5-3 with a 3.43 GAA and an .884 save percentage.
Anaheim is 11-2 in their last 13 games against a team with a losing record and 4-0 in their last 4 games played on no rest while the under is 5-1-1 in their last 7 road games. Chicago is 3-13 in their last 16 Saturday games and 1-7 in their last 8 games against the Western Conference while the under is 4-0-1 in their last 5 games as a home favorite.
I get the case to be made for either team here, but I’m strongly pushing towards the under. I think this is a spot where we see both teams struggle to find the back of the net as they have for much of the last few weeks and I think this is a 3-2 game at best. Give me the under here.
