From game 1 we said this was going to be one of the better, tighter series in the first round and these two teams haven’t disappointed.
Game 7 heads back to Anaheim with both teams looking to wrap up the series and prepare for San Jose.
With their back against the wall in game 6, the Preds played the kind of hockey they lacked since game 2 of the series.
Led by an A+ game from Rinne, Nashville played a sound defensively minded game and got key goals and some big saves when it was needed. Yet with all of that, they need to play even better if they hope to win the series.
One of the key areas that has fallen apart has been the glaring bad play of the PP unit who have scored just one lone goal on 23 chances, two of those being 5 on 3.
Although Neal was back on the score card, Forsberg was once again absent.
Until he breaks out of this current funk, the Nashville secondary unit needs to pick up the slack.
The Ducks are kicking themselves for not icing this series Monday night will full momentum on their side.
Anaheim played a great game and were in it to the end and even the goals weren’t mistakes, rather than some amazing play making from the opposition.
If Anaheim wants to win, they simply need to do everything the same. Scoring has been there, they simply stumbled upon a red-hot Rinne in game 6.
Anderson has owned the Preds through 4 games sporting a GAA smaller than 1.30 and I can see him putting up another dazzling showcase Wednesday.
With the home crowd on their side, the ducks easily have an upper hand in the finale.

Free Nashville Predators vs. Anaheim Ducks NHL Hockey Prediction
Game 7’s are an unforgiving monster all in themselves, but pitted with past demons can be a nightmare. Anaheim, as good as they are, have been notoriously awful in deciding matchups having gone 1-5 in their last six game sevens.
That lurking reminder of past failures will be the greatest hurdle for them to overcome. The goalies have been the story of this series, and Wednesday should play out the same.
Anderson had been a consistent rock while Rinne has been mediocre at beat with the exception of Mondays performance. Game 6 was the anomaly here and the mighty offence of the ducks should be enough to through Nashville off their game.
Had it not been for a highlight worthy save on a Corey Perry breakaway late in the 3rd, this series may have never headed back to California.

Baring a late barrage of empty net goals, this one should easily stay under the total once again where a 2-0 final is completely within reason. Do not expect either team to make any unnecessary risky plays, and expect the big names getting 20+ minutes.
Anaheim gets the nod here.
They’re special teams have ruled this series and at this time of the year, it’s your PP and PK that makes the difference. Ducks move on to play the Sharks
