Colorado Avalanche at Nashville Predators
Start Time: 9:30PM ET
The Avalanche were able to win one game of the two in Colorado. Making the series Predators up 3-1 heading back to Nashville. The predators have a chance to win and clinch the series in front of the home crowd. The Predators have started three of the four games in the series slow, but battled back to win two of those three, both those games were at home. Nashville was being called the “pretenders” in Colorado since in game 3 they came out sloppy and gave up three quick goals. And were unable to claw back into the game. But had the momentum in the 3rd period. After the embarrassment of that loss the Predators came out and scored quick and with ease in game 4. The only issue with game 4 was that they started fast, but finished sloppy. I expect the Predators to pull three strong periods together and win tonight’s game with ease. Predators’ Austin Watson and Filip Forsberg lead the team with 5 points in the series and 3 of those points are goals. Mattias Ekholm leads the team with 4 assists. For the Avalanche, Gabriel Landeskog leads with 6 points and 3 of those are goals. Tyson Barrie leads with 3 assist.
This game tonight is a very even matchup. The avalanche have shown they can score easily. But can’t withstand the pressure the whole night. While the predators have shown they won’t give up down the stretch. I predict the game to be tied at 1-1 in the 1st period and the Predators to pull away with a 4-2 victory.
The scores for the series thus far:
Game 1: 5-2 Predators
Game 2: 5-4 Predators
Game 3: 5-4 Avalanche
Game 4: 3-2 Predators
Game 5: Tonight in Nashville
Game 6: If needed Sunday @ Colorado
Game 7: If needed Tuesday in Nashville
