Nashville Predators @ Colorado Avalanche
Nashville leads the series 3-2
The Nashville Predators head back to Colorado for game 6 of the series. After taking a 1-0 lead late in the game the series seemed to be over. But the Avalanche stormed back and scored 2 quick goals and forced a game 6. Both goalies had outstanding games. The lineups haven’t been released to know if Andrew Hammond will be in the goal for the Avalanche.
For the Predators Austin Watson leads with 6 points. He has 3 goals and 3 assists. Filip Forsberg also has 3 goals. And Mattias Ekholm has 5 assist in the series. Pekka Rinne has a save rate of .894 in 5 games.
For the Avalanche, Gabriel Landeskog leads with 7 points, 4 goals, and 3 assists. He is the leader for the series with 4 goals. Tyson Barrie leads the Avalanche with 4 assists. Andrew Hammond has a save rate of .981 in 2 games.
If the Predators can play a complete clean 3 periods they have a good chance of winning today. If they start today like they started game 5 and finish like they did in game 4, the game could be over quickly. My prediction score is 4-2 Predators.
