NHL Predictions: Can the Ducks win on the road vs. the Flames? 4/17/17

Will the Anaheim Ducks be able to go on the road and pick up another win over the Calgary Flames when they meet in Game 3 tonight at 10PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at BetDSI, the Flames are favored at home, as they are getting odds of -130 to win, while the Ducks are getting a money line of +110. The over/under total for the game is listed at 5 goals.

Anaheim grabbed its second 3-2 win of the series on Saturday night. The Ducks now have a 2-0 lead in the series. The Ducks have now won five straight over Calgary and nine of the last 10 against the Flames. Calgary is 45-35-4 overall and 24-17 at home while Anaheim is 48-23-13 overall and 17-15-9 on the road.

The Ducks jumped out to a 2-0 lead in Game 2 as Jakob Silfverberg and Rickard Rakell scored in the first seven minutes of play. Mikael Backlund got a shorthanded goal to make in 2-1 to end the first. The Flames tied the game in the second when Sean Monahan scored. The Ducks got the game-winning goal in the third with under five minutes to play as Ryan Getzlaf found the net. The Ducks were outshot 37-29 in the win, but had a 40-28 edge in faceoffs.

Bet on Flames vs. Ducks

The Duck have edged Calgary in two games in this series, but now have to win on the road. The Flames certainly could get a boost at home, but the Ducks have a little stronger defense and play in net than the Flames. That is important in the playoffs and why I like the Ducks to go up 3-0 tonight. Brian Elliott has really poor numbers against the Ducks and had a sub-.900 save percentage in Game 2.
