I don’t think anyone would have predicted the Predators coming back to Nashville with a 2-0 lead in their first round series, especially not the Ducks. That’s exactly where we stand, with Nashville pinning Anaheim against the ropes. This series is now theirs to lose.
What we saw in games 1 and 2 from the ducks was a shadow of the team that charged their way to a Pacific division title.
They’re offence, which was a big part in getting them to that crown, is dead in the water. No spark, no creativity and now I’m fearing no hope.
Coach Beudreau’s decision to start Gibson over Anderson will. Come back to haunt them and in my opinion the ducks have dug themselves into a hole nearly impossible to come out of.
Give credit to where credit is due. I predicted a tight series from the get go but not even I saw the Preds taking both games in Cali.
Right now we’re seeing vintage Rinne, with some great help from his blue line corpse led by Weber.
The offence, which was the big question mark coming in, is doing everything right and getting the breaks to boot.
Forsberg looks fresh and is making things happen and the leadership and experience of Neal can not be under stated.

Free Nashville Predators vs. Anaheim Ducks NHL Hockey Prediction
Anaheim can’t recover from the blow of essentially losing home Ice advantage here. Even a split in Nashville would mean running the table in the final 3 games, and this team has shown nothing to prove their moving to the second round.
Nashville needs to deliver the death blow here in front of their home town crowd.
The fear of making a fatal mistake comes into play here and I see a tight, aggressive game Tuesday night.

Rinne and the Preds have sparked defensively at Bridgestone all season and after the display we saw last week, I see them doubling down.
As I said this is now Nashville’s series to lose, so expect them the simply sit and wait for the Ducks to self destruct.
Likewise Anaheim is playing on pins and needles, with everyone knowing one giveaway could end the season. Look for extra cautious play where defence rules.
