ESPN NHL Pick Anaheim Ducks vs. Montreal Canadiens
The Canadiens host the Ducks at the Bell Center for today’s encounter.
The Ducks come into this game as a tattered and broken unit. They have lost their last four outings, and did so splendidly. The magnitude of each loss kept on getting bigger and bigger and there was nothing they could do about it. Just yesterday they received a thrashing at hands of the Maple Leafs who beat them 5-1. However it must also be mentioned that three of these defeats came against teams that are topping the charts of their respective division. Still the fact remains that the Ducks have been weak defensively, letting their opposition score at will. The Ducks are placed seventh in the Pacific Division and are tied with the Oilers and the Coyotes at 51 points. A win here would help them climb the table and catch up to the Cancucks who are at 54pts. The Ducks are win-less in their last 5 games against the Atlantic and are 1-8 in their last 9 games against the Eastern Conference.
The Canadiens on the other hand find themselves in a much more comfortable spot. With three wins in their last five games, they are beginning to show some form of consistency. Their latest victory came against the Oilers who they beat 4-3 at home. The Canadiens are placed third in the Atlantic Division with 64pts and lead the Bruins who are placed fourth with just one point. A win here could also help them catch up to the Maple leafs who are placed second with 67pts. The Canadiens are 5-0 in their last 5 games against the Pacific and are 4-1 in their last 5 games at home against Anaheim,
