The Anaheim Ducks head to the Midwest for a battle with the St. Louis Blues tonight from Enterprise Center. Puck-drop is scheduled for 8pm EST from St. Louis.
The Ducks come in with a record of 5-11-1 while the Blues are .500 at 8-8. The Blues have won five straight games and will look to keep that going against the lowly Ducks.
Anaheim has really struggled this far this season, especially on defense. The Ducks are still without a win in regulation and are inching ever closer to the record. The Ducks will need to have a hell of a performance on defense if they want to stop the Blues attack in this game.
St. Louis needs to focus on pressuring the Anaheim defenders. They haven’t been able to get themselves in place much of the season and it has cost them. If the Blues can create consistent scoring chances, they will likely score a ton of goals on this Ducks team.
Anaheim is the worst team in the league at the moment and they need to starting gathering wins and quickly. However, it doesn’t look good for the boys out in Anaheim. It’s been a rough start with no signs of looking up.
Prediction: St. Louis Blues 5, Anaheim Ducks 2
The Blues should make quick work of the Ducks in this matchup.
