The Ducks go for three wins in a row against New York/Brooklyn/Long Island

NHL: New York Islanders at Anaheim Ducks Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

Numbers for Nerds

The Ducks and Islanders are nearly identical offensively this season. In goals per 60 minutes, the Ducks are 19th in the league at 2.19 while the Islanders are 20th at 2.17. Possession stats tell a similar story. The Islanders have a “commanding” lead at 40.7% while the Ducks sit at 39.49%. Both are the worst numbers in the league. Vegas betting lines are showing an Over/Under of 5 12 so I’d happily take the under.
