Money Line: -130.00 Anaheim (Home)
Here are my keys to the game:
1. Goaltending - Henrik Lundquist is more than likely to make his sixth straight start tonight. He's not had much success against the Ducks over his last three visits to the Duckpond, going 0-2-1 behind a 3.89 GAA. Everything points to the home team giving Fredrik Andersen a seventh consecutive start. He's been dominant at home all season long, and is 7-1-0 while compiling a 2.19 GAA in his last eight in California.
2. Home Cookin' - Anaheim has started an eight game home-stand by winning three of the first four. They've won seven of their last eight in front of the home fans and are 4-1 in its last five hosting a team with a winning road record. This should be a bad match-up for the Rangers as they're 1-4 in their last five at a team with a home winning % of greater than .600.
3. X-Factor - Ryan Getzlaf is fifth in the NHL with his 44 points and has notched seven goals and 18 assists over his last 17 games.
Selection: This is a play on the Anaheim Ducks (10*)
