Anaheim Ducks vs Edmonton Oilers: NHL Pacific Division Prediction

Anaheim Ducks vs Edmonton Oilers: NHL Pacific Division Prediction
National Hockey League action has our attention as the Anaheim Ducks host the Edmonton Oilers for a Pacific Division duel tonight. Uncharacteristically battling to stay out of the Western Conference cellar, Anaheim has been a huge disappointment out of the NHL starting gate. A once promising season hasn’t materialized in Edmonton as they are just two-points out of the NHL basement. The Ducks look to continue their domination over the Oilers when the puck drops at 10:00 PM ET on November 11, 2015, at the Honda Center.

Anaheim Ducks: Playing back-to-back off an overtime loss

Following a horrendous 1-7-2 start to their season, Anaheim picked things up somewhat as they won four straight games prior to dropping a 4-3 decision in overtime at home versus Arizona last night. Tied for second with Tampa Bay at +900 to the win the Stanley Cup back in the preseason, the Ducks 5-7-3 record has doubled their odds to +1400 and they sit five points out of a playoff position. Scoring goals has been an issue for Anaheim as the Ducks are averaging 1.60 goals per game – the worst mark in the NHL. A visit by the Oilers is just what the Ducks need at this point.

Edmonton Oilers: Still learning to adjust to life without Connor McDavid

While they weren’t much to write home about while they had him in the lineup, the Oilers were 4-8-0 prior to losing Connor McDavid to a broken clavicle, Edmonton has lost two in a row without their rookie phenom. That said, McDavid clearly made the Oilers better as he posted five goals and seven assists during his first 13 NHL games. Following a 2-1 home loss to Pittsburgh on Friday, and 4-2 road loss in Chicago on Saturday, Edmonton enters this contest fresh off two days of rest. The Oilers are 20th overall in the NHL with 39 goals scored and 26th with 47 goals allowed. 

Anaheim vs Edmonton NHL Prediction: Frederik Andersen (3-5-3 GAA 2.19) faces Anders Nilsson (2-3 GAA 3.09) in the netminders matchup here. Anderson was shaky as he allowed four goals on just 28 shots last night – after the Ducks offense gave him an early 2-0 lead. Nilsson allowed two goals on 33 shots but was an unlucky loser as Pittsburgh beat Edmonton 2-1 last Friday night. This is not a misprint – Edmonton has posted four wins in their last 25 games versus Anaheim and they haven’t won at the Honda Center since March 5, 2012. Back the Ducks with a 500 unit wager on the money line price posted the BetOnline sportsbook. Click the odds image to get in the game.
