The Ducks do look really far off from being a good team again, but they have been able to pull off some big upsets this year and luckily for them they will only be pulling off a moderate upset if they can pick up this victory.
The Ducks may not have enough left in the tank here however, as they come into this game losing three in a row and off the back of two back to back losses against the Coyotes who are not exactly world-beaters.
This Ducks team does not do too much well, but goal scoring has been the worst part of their game averaging only 2.21 goals per game to go along with a brutal 10.5% success rate on the power play.
Adam Henrique and Max Comtois have been the only two Ducks to reach double digit goals with 10 apiece which is pretty bad considering we have almost reached the 40 game mark of the season.
John Gibson is the unconfirmed starter and I feel like he actually has had a good season despite having a .900 save percentage and a GAA around 3, as there seems to be only so much you can do when playing on a team like the Ducks.
San Jose Sharks
Contrary to their opponents today the Sharks have plenty more hope for the future, and they really should given their roster as there are plenty of guys on this team who can get the job done. They are also riding high as of late picking up 4 straight wins and they get the best opportunity to extend that to 5 here against the Ducks.
Evander Kane has had plenty of off ice distractions here in 2021, but he deserves plenty of credit for putting his head down and focusing on hockey, as it has paid dividends with a very successful season which includes 33 points with 16 of those being goals.
Devan Dubnyk has not bee amazing here in 2021, but he is the unconfirmed starter here, and he must be looking forward to the opportunity to improve upon his mediocre stats against a Ducks team who simply does not score goals.

Free Anaheim Ducks vs. San Jose Sharks NHL Prediction:
In terms of the betting so far over 80% of the early money is on San Jose and that makes perfect sense to me, as they get the struggling Ducks at home, at the SAP Center, in a game they will be highly motivated for.
The line is -165 which is rough to take on a team like the San Jose Sharks, but I feel like it is okay here given the situation they find themselves in.
