The Nashville Predators and the Carolina Hurricanes meet in NHL action from the PNC Arena on Thursday night.
The Nashville Predators will look to bounce back from their 3-2 loss to Carolina in their last matchup. Filip Forsberg leads the Predators in scoring with 27 points including a team-high 10 goals and 17 assists while Roman Josi has 16 points with 14 assists and Viktor Arvidsson has 12 points with 9 assists. Mikael Granlund have 10 points split between 5 goals and 5 assists while Mattias Ekholm, Ryan Ellis and Dante Fabbro each have 9 points on the year. Pekka Rinne has made the majority of the starts in goal for Nashville, picking up 6 wins with a shutout and a 2.92 GAA in 17 appearances this season.
The Carolina Hurricanes will look to add to their current six-game win streak after their win over Nashville last time out. Vincent Trocheck and Sebastian Aho each have 24 points with Trocheck logging a team-high 13 goals and 11 assists while Aho has 10 goals and 14 assists. Jordan Staal has 22 points with 10 goals and 12 assists and Andrei Svechnikov has 20 points with 12 apples as well this season. Dougie Hamilton and Martin Necas each have 18 points with a combined 31 assists between the two while Nino Niederreited has 16 points with 11 goals and Brett PEsce’s on 13 points with 10 assists. Brock McGinn also has 12 points with 7 goals for Carolina this season. James Reimer continues to thrive in goal for Carolina, picking up 11 wins with a 2.83 GAA in 14 appearances.
Nashville is 4-10 in their last 14 road games and 1-4 in their last 5 games overall while the over is 5-1 in their last 6 games as an underdog. Carolina is 6-0 in their last 6 games overall and 5-0 in their last 5 games against a team with a losing record while the over is 20-8-2 in their last 30 games as a favorite. Nashville is 1-10 in the last 11 meetings between these two teams and 1-4 in the last 5 meetings between these two teams in Carolina.
The plus money with the Predators is tempting, but realistically, Nashville is continually having issues on the road, and up against one of the league’s best home teams in Carolina isn’t really a recipe to fix those woes on the road. Carolina’s picked up points in 10 of 11 games at home this season and I just think that the ‘Canes add another notch to that column with a win and a win by a couple of goals, covering on the puck line in the process.
