The Anaheim Ducks look to stay ahead of the Edmonton Oilers in the Pacific Division with two important points against the New York Rangers in The Big Apple.
Thanks to an inept offense, the Ducks have dropped their last two games to very beatable teams. Anaheim lost its last two games to the Florida Panthers and Tampa Bay Lightning respectively, scoring a combined three goals in the losses.
While Anaheim has struggled on offense for the entire season (they rank 21st in the NHL with 2.57 goals per game), being stymied by the Panthers and Lightning is particularly concerning.
Neither defense has played that well, and now the Ducks will have to go up against Henrik Lundqvist and the New York Rangers, a team that ranks 11th in goals allowed and 9th in shots allowed.
The Ducks are 11-10-7 on the road and have lost three of their last four contests away from home. They’ve averaged just 2.25 goals per game in those four games, and they need to be better if they want to hang with New York’s 2nd-ranked offense.
New York Rangers
Having won five of their last seven games, the Rangers are only four points behind Columbus for 3rd in the highly competitive Metropolitan Division.
New York is averaging 3.37 goals per game this season and has been almost as solid on defense. While Henrik Lundqvist is having a down year with a 2.74 GAA and a save percentage of .907, he commands an impressive record of 23-13-1.
The Rangers have also dominated the Western Conference this year. New York is 16-5 against Western Conference foes and is 4-1 in their last five games against the West.
This gives them a great edge against the Ducks, a team that’s dropped its last two on the road to Eastern Conference teams.

Free Anaheim Ducks vs. New York Rangers NHL Hockey Prediction:
The Anaheim Ducks will have their hands full against a New York Rangers team that is scoring at will. While the Rangers haven’t played nearly as well at home (15-11-1 on the season), they’ve destroyed Western Conference opponents.

Anaheim has also struggled offensively, and I don’t see them scoring enough to get past the Rangers in this game.
