The Carolina Hurricanes travel west for a matchup with the lowly Anaheim Ducks from Honda Center tonight. The game is set for puck-drop at 10pm EST between the two squads.
Carolina comes into this game with a record of 14-6-5 and have won four straight overall. Going up against the Ducks, the Hurricanes will look to take advantage of their poor defense. Anaheim is the worst team in the NHL this season and a major reason for that has been their defensive struggles.
The Ducks struggle both on defense and offense and it has lead to them losing most of their game by multiple goals. It was supposed to be a building year in Anaheim but that has since fallen by the wayside quickly. After an opening night win, the Ducks have completely broken apart. They have a -46 goal difference, which is the worst around the league. It has been a tough start to the year for this team and things don’t seem to be looking up at all.
Prediction: Carolina Hurricanes 4, Anaheim Ducks 1
Give me the Hurricanes to likely make quick work of the Ducks tonight. Anaheim will have trouble keeping up and Carolina grabs another win here.
