Carolina Hurricanes vs. Nashville Predators Predictions

Score Prediction Predators 3 Hurricanes 2

Easy scenario to believe going through the motions will quite possibly be on the agenda for both sides with a playoff series looming, but I think after Carolina went 6-0 SU to start the season series before losing 3-1 to the Preds the other night, Nashville's still got a bit more to prove.

Whether it's to themselves that Saturday's first win over Carolina wasn't a fluke, or proving it to the Hurricanes partly for the same reason, I think from a mental angle, you can only look at backing the Preds as a home dog.

Five of those six wins for Carolina were by multiple goals, and Nashville never scored three goals on a goalie in any of the meetings this year. Far more important game for the Predators to get so they can believe they'll have a chance in the playoff series, and hopefully, they'll get the win here.
