Anaheim Ducks: Looking to soar on their backyard pond
Say what you will about the National Hockey League regular season schedule, we have cursed it a ton over the years, but this why they play the games. With a 30-12-6 record this season, Anaheim earned the second seed in the Western Conference playoffs and, more importantly, home ice advantage for this winner take all Game 7 tonight. An Anaheim win means they move on to face the Stanley Cup defending Los Angeles Kings in the second round – some reward eh? Buried in the middle of the pack, when it comes to the Ducks playoff scoring, we’ll be keeping an eye on Corey Perry and the ageless wonder Teemu Salanne in this contest.
Detroit Red Wings: Have adapted well to the postseason underdog role to date
Playing in the NHL playoffs for a 22nd second straight season, Detroit has been in a rare underdog role throughout this quarterfinal series. Even yours truly, a life long Wings fan dating back to the days of Gordie Howe and the Olympia Arena, is surprised by Detroit’s resilience versus the Ducks. The Wings (24-16-8) have matched the Ducks win for win, including their hard fought 5-4 OT win here at the Honda Center in Game Two ten days ago. Putting my heart aside, I feel the Hockey Town Crew is in tough in this match-up. Topbet.eu bookmakers feel the same and we’ll invest a small stake in the Ducks and their -1.5 (+225) puck line.
