Stephen Nover's NHL Thursday Totals Crusher
(NHL) Anaheim vs. Winnipeg, 10/21/2021 8:00 PM, Score: 1 - 5
Total: 5.50 | -108.00 Over
Result: Win
I'm not about to call the Ducks an Over team, but Anaheim's offense and power play have been surprisingly good at this early juncture. The Ducks also have been getting outstanding offensive contributions from their defensemen. They've helped the Ducks produce 3 or more goals in three of their four games.

The Ducks have scored four power play goals in 12 opportunities. The Jets have given up seven goals in 15 short-handed situations.

I'm expecting a lot of penalties, too. These teams met eight days ago in their season openers. The Ducks won, 4-1, but the big takeaway was the bad blood that came out after Jets forward Andrew Copp knocked Ducks goalie John Gibson to the ice after running into him. The Ducks considered that dirty pool.

The Jets have scored eight goals in their last two games.
