Kevin Shattenkirk made his Anaheim Ducks debut on Thursday. Shattenkirk logged 23:55 minutes, which highlights just how much the Ducks are likely to lean on him this season. It was a huge jump from his average of 18:54 minutes in 2019-20 when he was a member of the Stanley Cup-winning Tampa Bay Lightning. As for Thursday's game, the Ducks quickly fell behind 2-0, but stabilized somewhat in an eventual 5-2 loss to Vegas. “Our response in the first period was great, the way we just took a deep breath,” Shattenkirk said. “We realized it was the first game of the year, no exhibition games, there’s going to be some mistakes made and they capitalized on them, but we did the same thing to them.”

Robin Lehner picked up a 5-2 win in Thursday's season opener against the Anaheim Ducks. Lehner made 20 saves on 22 shots and finished the night with a .909 save percentage. After giving up two goals to Anaheim's Max Comtois within four minutes in the first, Lehner remained solid for the rest of night and kept the Ducks to two goals for the rest of the matchup. This was a good start to the season for Lehner, who is expected to split starts with Fleury early on this year.

Ducks vs. Golden Knights Prediction

The over is 5-0 in the last five meetings between these two teams, is 5-0 in the Ducks’ last five road games and has cashed in five of their last seven games overall. The over is also 25-10-1 in Anaheim’s last 36 games after scoring two goals or less in its previous game, is 5-2 in its last seven games playing on only one day of rest and is a perfect 5-0 in the Ducks’ last five games as a road underdog.
