Predators vs Avalanche: Prediction
Until the end of the regular season, it was unclear whether Nashville would try its luck in the playoffs. Still, the team managed to clinch the draw, finishing eighth in the standings. In the Cup, the Predators had to face one of the favorites, Colorado, in a devastating defeat (2-7).
The Predators were not ready for such an attacking performance by the Avalanche, which led to defensive lapses. A goalkeeper didn’t do his best, having to be replaced in the first period after five missed pucks.
Colorado failed at the end of the season, winning only one game out of seven. But that didn’t stop the team from taking the lead in the Western Conference standings.
Already in the first game of the Stanley Cup, the Avelanche showed what they were capable of, defeating Nashville with a score of 7:2. The first period was the most productive, the Avalanche took advantage of their opponent’s defensive lapses, scoring five goals. It is worth praising the entire first unit, as every hockey player scored at least one point.
Colorado did not give Nashville a chance, showing their best side already in the first game. The team just did not notice their opponent and now has even more confidence in themselves. The Avalanche look a head stronger than the Predators and should once again get a confident victory. It is for this reason we can bet on the minus forum of the hosts.
