ATS Matchup Insight | CappersPicks Insider Preview

Following a spicy 3-0 win, Dallas hopes to continue getting under the skin of the Ducks and ride the momentum to a 2-2 series tie. The Stars enter Game 4 as a slight favorite – hard to imagine!

The Anaheim Ducks were taken totally out of their game on Monday night – emotion rather than skill took over and acted as a detriment rather than a benefit. It hasn`t been too many times this season in which the Ducks were shut out and were thoroughly outplayed but it happened in Game 3.

We can point at the lack of discipline and the loss of Stephane Robidas on the blue line when dissecting what went wrong with the Ducks but 0-for-5 on the power play is certainly uncharacteristic of this team.

They Ducks are now 0 for their last eight in the series with the man advantage – something that is bound to change sooner than later. Anaheim has been masterful of taking advantage of what other teams give them – in Game 3 there was absolutely none of that.

The Dallas Stars did exactly what they had to do in Game 3 and may have found a formula for success against the West`s top seed. Aggressiveness and stellar play from their goaltender has to be the focus for the Stars going forward.
On two occasions Monday night Ryan Getzlaf and Corry Perry were both in the penalty box at the same time – if the Ducks’ dynamic duo isn`t on the ice – they can`t do any damage! Credit the Stars with targeting the right guys at the right time and for being successful in their agitation.

34 saves from Kari Lehtonen also helped the Stars’ cause. It was widely known before the series started that Kari Lehtonen would have to steal a game or two along the way for the Stars to have any success at all against Anaheim – Monday night`s game was one of those robberies.

Can Lehtonen maintain his stellar play? Will Anaheim ignore all of the annoyances and get back to their brand of hockey? Needless to say – it should be interesting!

Dave’s FREE NHL Betting Prediction

A few trends to consider:
• ANA are 7-2 in their last 9 vs. Central.
• ANA are 17-7 in their last 24 road games.
• ANA are 38-17 in their last 55 overall.
• Over is 18-7-2 in DAL last 27 Wed. games.
• Under is 7-3 in DAL last 10 vs. Pacific.
• ANA are 16-36-2 in the last 54 meetings in Dallas.

It is difficult to imagine the Ducks losing their cool two games in a row. It is equally hard to fathom the Stars dominating the Ducks for two games in a row. Expect a bounce back from Getzlaf, Perry and company as the Ducks demonstrate exactly why they are the best in the West. Anaheim as an underdog? Yes please!

Pick: Anaheim Ducks +105
