Nashville got themselves back into the series with a Game 3 win and they now look to even things up here in Game 4.
After falling behind 1-0, the Predators rattled off 4 straight goals to cap off a comeback and win 4-1.
The Predators have been one of those teams that feeds off the comebacks.
Nashville was out of the playoffs with about a month plus left, but took off and went on a massive winning streak to propel themselves into a spot. This team knows when they have their backs against the wall that they’re never dead or out of it.
Nashville’s Game 3 win described how their team has been all year. It’s not just one guy who carries the load, it’s many.
They had 4 different goal scorers on Tuesday as Neal, Weber, Wilson, and Forsberg all found the back of the net.
As far as G Pekka Rinne is concerned, he was dominant. He turned aside 26 of 27 shots faced. Him, along with his defense, really stepped it up after that first period. They’ll need to do something similar on Thursday.
San Jose Sharks
San Jose has started this series completely opposite of how their season has gone.
The Sharks were the best road team this season, but very sketchy at home. However, they took both home games and then followed that up with a loss on the road in Game 3.
With the loss, the Sharks are now 31-11-2-1 away from home, which is still quite impressive.
G Martin Jones faced only 25 shots in Game 3, but was only able to turn aside 21. He will be the biggest key here in Game 4. Jones has been the difference maker for this Sharks team, as he’s been able to keep the opposition from gaining any momentum.
Jones has a GAA of just 2.27 this season, including postseason play.
