National Hockey League Betting Odds Ducks vs Blue Jackets
Anaheim Ducks: Sporting second best record in the NHL
Coming off a six game road trip, where they went 5-1, Anaheim returns home to the Honda Center to face Columbus tonight. That run, against mostly Central Division opponents, gave the Ducks a franchise best win percentage for a road trip of five or more games. Anaheim sits fourth in the league with a 3.3 goals per game and, led by Daniel Winnik and Bobby Ryan who have five goals each, the Ducks have nine players with at least four goals. At the age of 30, Anaheim goaltender Victor Fasth is now 8-0 to start his NHL career.
Columbus Blue Jackets: Loses, penalties, and injuries continue to mount
One has to wonder when “give up” syndrome is going to strike in Columbus. Sitting last in the league, with 10 out of a possible 30 points, the Blue Jackets have not won on the road since they beat the Nashville Predators (3-2 SO) in their first game of the season. Not only is Columbus lacking player talent, but they are also very undisciplined as the Jackets are averaging 17:47 penalty minutes per game. Center Brandon Dubinsky, the Jackets second leading scorer with eight points, is now listed as day-to-day with a lower-body injury.
