Ducks blow three-goal lead at Stars

John Gibson made 40 stops on 44 shots in the loss before being replaced by Ryan Miller, who made six saves on six shots.

NHL Betting Trends

Anaheim

The over is 5-0 in the last five Ducks games on Sundays. The under is 5-2 in the last seven meetings in St. Louis.

St. Louis

The home team is 38-14-1 in the last 53 meetings. The over is 4-0-1 in the last five Blues games overall.

Prediction:

Both teams played yesterday so fatigue will be the same on both sides. It will also be a battle of backup goalies with Miller between the pipes for St. Louis and Chad Johnson going for Anaheim. Due to this, I think the best play might be the over as the defenses might not make up for subpar goaltending.
