Preview

The Carolina Hurricanes hit the road and will visit the Anaheim Ducks on Wednesday night. These teams met 4 times last season and they tied 2-2. 

 

Carolina Hurricanes 

The Hurricanes have lost 4 of their last 5 games and are 6-3-3 on the road ranking 3rd in the Metropolitan division. In their last game, they lost against the Arizona Coyotes 4-0 at home. Pyotr Kochetkov, just hours after a contract extension was announced, stopped 22 shots for Carolina. He wasn’t expected to be on the ice, but scheduled starter Antti Raanta was the backup instead.

Martin Necas leads with 10 assists and 17 points for the Hurricanes. Andrei Svechnikov is leading with 8 goals and seven assists over the last 10 games.

In their last 10 games the Hurricanes were 3-7, averaging 2.3 goals, five assists, 4.4 penalties and 9.2 penalty minutes while giving up 2.8 goals per game

Anaheim Ducks

The Ducks get here with a 3-1 record overall and 1-0 at home so far ranking 3rd in the Atlantic Division with 6 points. They beat the Flyers 4-3 in their last game.  Carter Verhaeghe scored twice, Rudolfs Balcers and Josh Mahura each had third-period goals.

Matthew Tkachuk is leading the team with 2 goals, 4 assists and 6 points for the Ducks. Carter Verhaeghe has scored eight goals with six assists over the past 10 games.

In their last 10 games the Ducks are 5-5, averaging 2.6 goals, 6.5 assists, 4.2 penalties and 11.1 penalty minutes while giving up 3.1 goals per game.

 

BETTING TRENDS

The total has gone UNDER in 10 of NY Hurricanes' last 12 games.

NY Hurricanes are 1-4 SU in their last 5 games.

NY Hurricanes are 2-6 SU in their last 8 games against NY Ducks.

The total has gone UNDER in 4 of NY Hurricanes' last 5 games on the road.

The total has gone OVER in 8 of NY Ducks' last 12 games.

NY Ducks are 4-10 SU in their last 14 games.

The total has gone UNDER in 5 of NY Ducks' last 6 games against NY Hurricanes.

 

Prediction

The Hurricanes have been awful lately scoring only 1.7 goals per game in their last 3 games and are coming from a tough game against the Avalanche. The Ducks are also on a 3 game losing streak but have faced some tough teams like the Panthers and the Lightning. With both teams struggling offensively I think the best play is the under.
