Predators vs Blues: Prediction
Nashville continues to be on the decline after a successful start to the season. The team’s losing streak has already reached five games, and in almost all games the team was unable to put up a fight against their opponents. Only in one meeting were the Predators one step away from victory, losing to Los Angeles in a shootout.
All the same, the Predators approached the regular season not in great shape and currently sit in 12th place in the Western Conference table with five points.
In this game also could help Horachek who was promoted from Assistant to Associate in June of 2011.
St. Louis Blues
St. Louis broke its winning streak, which reached four games. The team met on the road with Winnipeg and suffered a dry defeat with a score of 0:4. The Blues had also previously struggled with production, and their total of 12 goals in five games was poor in the NHL.
It seemed like the Blues would be able to rehabilitate themselves by returning to their home arena. But once again, the Blues failed to produce offensively, dropping just one goal to Edmonton, which resulted in another defeat (1-3).
St. Louis once again has a great opportunity to rehabilitate itself for the loss. The team has a good chance to take advantage of their opponent’s decline and win on the road.
It is hard to say when Nashville will come to its senses and start pleasing its fans with successful results. But so far the Predators are in terrible shape and can’t even put up a fight against opponents of their level. Despite this, bookmakers give a pretty high odds on the Blues’ victory, which is worth taking advantage of.
