Red Wings vs Ducks: Long Road Trip Continues For Detroit

Red Wings vs Ducks: Long Road Trip Continues For Detroit

Anaheim Ducks: Soaring as Pacific Division leaders

Owners of the largest lead in any of the four NHL divisions, Anaheim heads in tonight's action with a ten point cushion over Vancouver in the Pacific Division. The Ducks have bigger fish to fry though as the Mighty Ones are six points behind Nashville for first overall in the Western Conference. Anaheim, who are without their top goaltender Frederik Anderson, have been streaky in February. The Ducks sport a 5-4-1 recent record and return home after road wins in Calgary (6-3) and Edmonton (2-1).

Detroit Red Wings: Heading to a 24th straight NHL playoff appearance

All bias aside, if yours truly could play for any pro sports team, he would want a red winged wheel on his jersey. Owners of the longest current playoff appearance streak in the "Big Four" North American sports, Detroit is well on their way to a 24th straight trip to the NHL postseason. The Red Wings are third in the Atlantic Division, with a nine point bulge on Boston, and sixth in the East - just five points out of first. Detroit is 2-2-1 over their last five games and have been outscored by a 19-15 margin.

Red Wings vs Ducks Decision: Detroit is playing the third of a six game road trip that opened with extra time wins in Chicago (3-2 SO) and Dallas (7-6 OT). The Wings erased two third period two-goal deficits against the Stars but the victory came with a price as Detroit is without their top scorer after Henrik Zetterberg went down in Dallas. Anaheim has won three straight vs their former West Division rivals including a 3-2 October road victory in the only meeting this season. Back Anaheim at the Duck Pond with a 300 unit wager on the money price posted on the betting board.
