Anaheim vs Edmonton: Playoff Bound Ducks Aim for a Sweep in Alberta

Anaheim vs Edmonton: Playoff Bound Ducks Aim for a Sweep in Alberta
Fresh off a 6-3 dousing of the red-hot Flames in Calgary last night, Anaheim travels up the QEII highway for a clash with Edmonton. Despite some recent stumbles, the Ducks are still well positioned in the playoff race while the Oilers are just wishing their long season would end. This NHL Pacific Division battle is slated for 7:00 PM ET on February 21, 2015, at Rexall Place in Alberta, Canada.

Anaheim Ducks: Ruling the roost in the NHL Pacific Division

While their play hasn’t been all that solid recently, Anaheim still holds a commanding ten point lead in the Pacific Division playoff race. Following a torrid 8-1-0 run to open the New Year, the Ducks have wobbled some as they have posted a 4-6-1 record over their last eleven games. Defense has been a bit of issue for Anaheim as they were outscored by a 43-33 margin during that stretch. The Ducks recorded 2-1 and 4-2 wins during a home and home series vs Edmonton back in December.

Edmonton Oilers: Well positioned in the race to land top prospect Connor McDavid

Another long season is crawling to a close in the Alberta capital as Edmonton will miss the playoff party for a ninth straight year. With a 17-33-10 record, the Oilers are second last overall as they battle Buffalo in the Connor McDavid sweepstakes. While the worst record doesn’t guarantee the first NHL draft pick, the team that finishes last has a 20.0% chance at the first selection while the second last squad has 13.5% shot. The Oilers were mauled 4-0 by Minnesota at home last night.

Oilers vs Ducks Game Day Call: Though well in control of first place overall in the Pacific Division, Anaheim is still aiming for home ice advantage in the Western Conference playoffs. The Ducks are perched third in the West as they are six points behind Nashville and one point back of the Blues. While always reluctant to give up pucks with road teams – we like the Ducks in this contest. Wager 500 units on the Anaheim Alternative 3-Way price posted on the Bodog NHL puck betting board.
