Odds: Ducks -121
Total O/U: 5½u (-118)

It’s been a lacklustre start to the season for the two-time defending champions, but perhaps that’s to be expected after all the extra hockey they’ve played the last two seasons. Now that the second half is well under way, they seem to be picking up their game, especially that dangerous offense. They’ve scored 24 goals in their last six games, winning five and getting shut out once.

Sidney Crosby leads the NHL in scoring in that time with 3-9-12. Evgeni Malkin (5-5-10) and Phil Kessel (4-6-10) aren’t far behind.

Anaheim has gone 1-2-1 in their last four after going 5-1-0 in their previous six. The offense has dried up through the losing streak, with just eight goals scored in the process.

This team has been ravaged by injuries for much of the season, but they are close to full strength now.
