Detroit Red Wings vs. Anaheim Ducks

NHL: Tuesday, November 12, Honda Center, Anaheim, California, 10:00 PM ET

The Detroit Red Wings visit the Anaheim Ducks on Tuesday night to wrap up their regular-season series. Back in Week 2, the Ducks outlasted the Red Wings 3-1 in Detroit. They trailed at the end of the 2nd period but netted three times until the midpoint of the 3rd period to record the ninth victory over Detroit in the last 13 head-to-head encounters.

The Red Wings are an excellent example of how unpredictable the NHL is. After tallying 12 losses in 13 games, the Red Wings have won two straight games, beating the reigning vice-champions Boston Bruins 4-2 and the 2018 Stanley Cup finalists Vegas Golden Knights 3-2. On the other side, the Anaheim Ducks are riding a three-game losing streak following a 6-2 defeat to the Edmonton Oilers on Sunday night.

The Red Wings finally found their offensive flow

Before they upset the Bruins and Golden Knights, the Detroit Red Wings have dropped four straight contests while scoring only five goals in the process. Against Boston and Vegas, they’ve netted seven times in the total. Robby Fabbri scored twice on his debut against the Bruins, while Anthony Mantha scored his 10th goal of the season late in the 3rd period to seal the victory. Against the Golden Knights, the Red Wings overcame a 2-1 deficit with a couple of 3rd-period goals, and Anthony Mantha decided the winner once again.

Detroit is the most inefficient team in the league with only 2.21 goals per game. Likewise, the Red Wings are allowing 3.79 goals per contest which are the 2nd-most in the NHL. Their penalty-kill percentage is the worst in the league (68.3%). Wingers Anthony Mantha and Tyler Bertuzzi are leading the way for Detroit, combining for 34 points. Mantha scored 11 goals, while Bertuzzi added ten assists.

Jimmy Howard will get the starting call against the Ducks, and he’s 2-8-0 this season with a 3.99 GAA and a .887 save percentage. Over 13 years in the league, Howards has a 2.57 GAA and a .913 save percentage. He’s 11-7-3 in 21 games against Anaheim in his career.

The Ducks hope to snap a three-game skid

The Ducks continue their seven-game homestand, looking to put an end to a three-game losing streak. They were easily beaten by the Oilers 6-2 this past Sunday, allowing a couple of goals in each period. Rickard Rakell and Max Jones netted for the Ducks, but they were completely outplayed by the furious Edmonton team. John Gibson had a bad night between the pipes, surrendering six goals while making 25 saves. It was Gibson’s second straight loss.

Anaheim is 25th in the league in goals per game (2.61) and 8th in goals against (2.72). The Ducks’ power-play percentage is the 2nd-worst in the NHL (8.5%), as they continue to struggle offensively. Winger Jakob Silfverberg leads the Ducks with 14 points (G7, A7), while three different players including center Ryan Getzlaf (G7, A4) has 11 points. Defenseman Hampus Lindholm is the team’s best assist-maker with nine dishes, but he will miss the clash with Detroit due to an injury.

John Gibson will get the starting nod Tuesday night, and he’s 6-8-0 with a 2.80 GAA and a .915 save percentage. Gibson is 125-85-28 in his career, tallying a 2.44 GAA and a .921 save percentage. He’s 6-4-0 in ten games against the Red Wings.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

This one seems like a perfect opportunity for the Ducks to snap their losing streak. The Red Wings have won their previous two contests, but they still have a lot of vulnerabilities in their game. Detroit’s offense is the worst in the league, while its defense is among the worst in the NHL. Likewise, the Ducks have a chance to improve their power-play percentage that is surprisingly terrible at the moment. John Gibson will be keen to bounce back from two poor displays, while the Red Wings will start Jimmy Howard who hasn’t impressed so far. Therefore, give me the Ducks at the money line odds.

Prediction: Anaheim Ducks (-160)

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

This will be the battle of two quite inefficient teams, while the Ducks’ defense has been excellent thus far besides a few duds. Anaheim has allowed six goals to Edmonton in its previous outing, so I expect the Ducks to be fired up to shut down the Red Wings who’s scored the fewest goals in the league so far. Their first meeting of the season saw four goals on the scoreboard, while the under has hit in five of the previous six encounters between Detroit and Anaheim. Considering all the facts, we shouldn’t expect to see a bunch of goals in this one, so I’m backing the under.

Prediction: Under 5.5 goals (+110)
