Free Vancouver Canucks vs. Anaheim Ducks NHL Prediction
Vancouver will have to dig deep to beat this elite Anaheim Ducks Squad. It also appears once again, Anaheim is extremely undervalued at -130 on the moneyline.
Reason being, The Canucks are very thin defensively and weak on their PK%. For example, The Ducks have the 4th ranked PP%, while The Canucks have the worst in the entire league.
With all of that being said, Anaheim allows a lot of shots per game which could be exploited if Vancouver can play a clean game and stay out of the penalty box.
