In a game from NHL, we will see Detroit Red Wings at Anaheim Ducks.
The Red Wings will be disappointed to take just 1 point in their season opener as they fell to 3-13 in overtime games since the start of the previous season. There are too many injury problems for Detroit at the moment and that resulted in Dennis Chalowski, the 2016 first round pick, making his debut. There were also 5 other players who also played their first game for the Red Wings.
Anaheim started the season impressively, recording a victory over the Sharks on the road by 5-2 and then beat the Coyotes by 1-0. Their forward Jakob Slifverberg has 4 assists so far and he is the main reason for their solid start. In regards to the defense, John Gibson has been great, allowing just 2 goals in 2 games and making 41 saves, during his shutout performance on Thursday.
Given the fact that the Detroit Red Wings are banged up on defense and that the Anaheim Ducks started so strongly, it would be hard to pick against the home side. All things point to a victory for Anaheim and I believe it would even be a convincing one.
