What a night in hockey we had last night. Two unreal matchups on TNT back to back where we saw the Knights and Avs in the late one with a barnburner, and earlier the Panthers coming out on top over who we are going to dig into here, the Carolina Hurricanes.
I watched this game in it’s entirety and it was a real playoff like feel. Very scrappy, chippy and lots of big hits.
It was a hard fought battle and evenly matched. Ultimately the Panthers scored to tie the game late and send it into overtime and 16 seconds into the extra frame Ekblad was sprung for a breakaway to put it on ice.
Absolutely electric stuff and to cap it off we saw the women’s gold medal game in the winter olympics, where team USA put a barrage of pucks on net in the final minutes to come within one but ultimately Team Canada prevailed and came away with gold medals.
What an evening it was, I had a blast watching everything and it has me right riled up for playoffs and this home stretch.
So, speaking of those Hurricanes though, how do we feel about them going against the Predators only a night after playing and losing? Well, let’s wade into the weeds and find out.
The Predators are currently on a three game losing streak and are 4-5-1 in their last ten. Before this stretch as we’ve covered here before were on a tear and getting production from a lot of places.
They have been an easy out as of late though and are in need of a spark if they want to hold on in the central division which is increasingly more difficult. I predict they will still be in the hunt and may make a move on the deadline to go for it.
The Hurricanes on the other hand are rolling. They have been without question one of the best teams in the NHL this season and really don’t seem to have any weaknesses.
They have lost two straight, one being in overtime against FLA on Wednesday night as we mentioned but they are 5-3-2 in their last 10 games and have performed well during that span.
Fredrik Anderson is expected to start this one as is Juuse Saros in the other end and both goalies have been outstanding this year, perhaps why our total is set where it is.

Free Carolina Hurricanes vs. Nashville Predators NHL Prediction:
I am going to hammer the Hurricanes in this one. They do not strike me as a team who will drop three straight at any point of the remainder of this season.
I am also going to sprink the under in this one. Both these teams have excellent defenders and outstanding goaltending.
After watching the game last night against the Panthers and seeing it hit 5 goals I am pretty confident this game will have a similar result.
