Ducks Trying to Snap Losing Skid Prior to Olympic Break in Nashville

League's best team in Anaheim struggling right now

Anaheim has lost three straight games, but built such a lead to start the season that they still own the highest point total in the league. The Ducks will attempt to snap their skid tonight when they visit the Predators in Nashville. During their recent struggles, the Ducks have scored just 2.1 goals per game, a major drop from their 4.0 goals per game during an 18-1-0 stretch prior to their rough patch. That rough spot includes a 4-6-0 record in the last 10 games.

Predators sitting in basement despite recording points

Nashville has been able to record at least one point in seven of their last eight games, but that has not been enough to help them climb out of the Central Division cellar. The Predators could be exhausted coming into tonight's home game with Anaheim because each of their past three games have required overtime to determine a winner. Nashville will need to put a lot of team adversity behind them if they want to win this game and finish strong.

Even though Anaheim has scored just 2.1 goals per game during a recent 10-game rough patch, tonight could be much different for the league's top team in Nashville. We will drop 10 percent of our bankroll on the Ducks with the OVER 5.5 total goals scored at +114 at SportsBetting.ag later this evening as they explode out of their offensive doldrums.
