I do need to pick up the pieces from a poor NHL week from yours truly, and I hope I have found the best way to finish the week. Goals! Lamps being lit! Sirens are being heard, and fans have reasons to get up and cheer when Anaheim and Ottawa are on the same ice this Friday afternoon. A day game is not a common site, and I hope it puts the boys in the mood to score.
So, I am sitting here watching the Anaheim vs. NY Rangers game on Wednesday night, and oh, by the way, Happy Thanksgiving! Turkey Day is here on Thursday and that is why you will likely see this tip up nice and early for your betting pleasure.
The Rangers and Ducks were level at 1 goal apiece going to the 2nd period, and the Ducks came out inspired to take their first lead into the third period this season. Anaheim scored 0:39 seconds into the 2nd period, and less than 5 minutes later the Ducks jumped out to a 3 – 1 lead when Troy Terry tallied his 8th goal of the campaign. Artemi Panarin picked up his 400th assist on a Zibanejad goal that made it 3 – 2 with 2 minutes left in the 2nd period. It marked his 529th career game played, and the assist made him the 22nd fastest player to reach the milestone.
The Ducks got to go up against Jaroslav Halak as Igor Shesterkin was given the night off. The Ducks had yet to win a game in regulation time all season coming into the contest and the chat all through the intermission report was about the fact that the Ducks have surrendered 30 goals in the final period this year. Holding onto leads, or even having one at all, has made 3rd periods a challenge for Anaheim all season. The Ducks gave New York an early 3rd-period power play but the Rangers were unable to convert it into anything which left them 0 – 4 on the PP at that point.
The Rangers rang 6 pucks off of the posts throughout the game, and none rang louder than the Panarin shot with 3 minutes left to play that would have tied that game at 3 – 3. Anaheim found their first regulation-time win of the year as they kept the score 3 – 2, despite still owning the worst power play in all of hockey. I hope they find ways to fix that in time for Ottawa on Friday night.
Where do we start with the Ottawa campaign? I have yet to go back to discussing them after as many of their games as I did early in the season. Maybe it is good that I caught this game on the board because using the words Senators and defense are not commonly said together.
There are 16 teams in each conference, and guess which two teams are in the cellars? Ottawa has barely scraped out 13 points because of the 64 goals allowed. The last two skates for Ottawa have seen 10 pucks find the net against them, and I then I saw the line for this game. Is that 5.5 at 1.91 that I saw on the early line? It will move, so expect to pay a little juice for it.
Hold on, so you’re telling me that even if they get stuck on 3 – 2, we’ll just need an empty-netter or some late magic to give us our 6 goals or tie the game at 3 to get paid? I cannot let a 6 sit on the board with these two teams on the same ice.
