Anaheim vs Detroit by 20legend
It is the fourth and final meeting between Anaheim Ducks and Detroit Red Wings. Detroit has won 3 of 3 games so far:
Dec 3, 2010 Detroit RW- Anaheim Ducks DET, 4 - 0
Oct 23, 2010 Anaheim Ducks - Detroit RW DET, 5 - 4
Oct 8, 2010 Anaheim Ducks - Detroit RW DET, 4 - 0
Anaheim has been terrible lately with 5 straight losses, before beating a even less impressive Colorado Avalanche by 3-2. Anaheim's form their last 10 games is 5-4-1, but it is only 1-0-5 in their last 6 games with 17-29 in goal difference.
Anaheima has big hopes for their new player Brad Winchester, who is bought in from St.Louis where he scored 9 goals before beeing moved to Anaheim Ducks.
Ducks injuries: Jonas Hiller (1st goaltender) and Saku Koivu is missing, while forward Corey Perry is likely to be out after leaving the training on Tuesday with a lower-body injury.
Detroit Red Wings has rised themselves again with two straight victories, after loosing two straight matches. They beated Buffalo Sabres and LA Kings away from home, witch means that this is the 3rd game of 5 on the road for the Wings.
Their form is 7-3-0 in the last 10 games, and 4-0-2 in their last 6 games with 20-18 in goal difference. However, Detroit's motivation for winning at Anaheim should be huge. Detroit has already won 6 straight games on the road, and by beating Anaheim tonight, Detroit will make their longest winning-streak away from home since 2006.
Detroit's goaltender Jimmy Howard has 10-0-0 in his last 12 starts away from home. He has 16-3-0 in 21 road starts, and has only let 2.63 goals against average.
Detroit Red Wings injuries: Brian Rafalski (defense) and Patrick Eaves (forward) is missing for the Wings.
Anaheim is struggling and even with a win against Colorado Avalance, it's going to be totally trickier to score against in-form Detroit Red Wings.
Anaheim is without their 1st goalie, witch is bad news. Anaheim are letting in many goals now, but without Jonas Hiller it is going to be alot more difficult to stop Henrik Zetterberg, Pavel Datsyuk and the rest of the offensive power that belongs to Detroit.
Detroit is far better defensivly with Lidstrom, Stuart +++. The motivation for Detroit couldn't be better when they are trying to take their 7th straight victory on the road.
Detroit Red Wings should win this.
