Nashville vs Carolina: Streaking Predators Visit Fading Hurricanes

Rock solid defense defines the Nashville Predators

Leading the National Hockey League with just 46 goals allowed over 23 games, Nashville has surged to the top of the Western Conference. The Predators (16-5-2) are tied with Pittsburgh and Detroit for the least losses in the NHL. Pekka Rinne (16-3-1) is the heart and soul of the Predators as he leads all starting netminders with a 1.82 goals against average. Nashville has scored three or less goals in 12 of their past 14 games.

Mediocre in most aspects the Hurricanes struggle to earn wins

After opening the season with a 0-6-2 record, Carolina has been in catch up mode ever since as they struggle to gain some sort of consistency. Following their disastrous start, the undermanned Hurricanes (7-13-3) won four straight games but they are just 3-7-1 since the winning run. Coming off a 1-6-0 skid, Carolina split a pair of weekend games against the powerful Penguins as they won 4-2 on Friday and lost 3-2 on Saturday.

Predators vs Hurricanes Prediction: Leaning heavily on their defense, Nashville has won won four straight one-goal games with the combined total coming in at meager 10-6 count. Playing at home, Carolina can’t be totally dismissed here and we expect this will be a close low scoring contest. As such, we will prowl with the Predators and a 500 unit money line wager at the SportsInteraction online sportsbook.
