The Pacific Division champion Anaheim Ducks and the wild card Nashville Predators meet in the first round of the 2016 Stanley Cup playoffs, and we have a full NHL odds analysis on this game for all fans.Game 1 is set for Friday night in Anaheim. The Ducks finally clinched the division crown on the last night of the regular season, so this wasn’t one of those seasons when they simply dominated the division. At the end of December, this was a team that was not likely to make the playoffs at all. Since the Christmas break, though, then have gone 34-10-5, better than any other team in the league.On January 12, they sat 16 points behind the Los Angeles Kings in the division but came all the way back, knocking off the Washington Capitals in the season finale to take the title. However, the Ducks may not have done themselves any favors, as they meet a team who beat them two out of three times in the regular season this year.
