Expect Goals Between Ducks, Preds

Offense has not been hard to come by when the Anaheim Ducks and Nashville Predators, as the OVER has cashed in nine of their past 11 meetings, with pushes accounting for the other two. The Ducks and Preds will continue their playoff series Sunday night at The Pond.

Shark Bites
  • Filip Forsberg has five goals in seven career playoff games.
  • Ducks’ coach Bruce Boudreau has still not commited to a starting goalie for Game 2.
  • The Predators have won just one of their past five road games.

The Predators shocked more than a couple pundits by knocking off the Ducks in the first game of the series. It was the kind of play we have come to expect from the Preds, as it was a team effort and no one individual player that stood out in the win.

The start of Game 1 was certainly something to forget for the Ducks, as they came out sluggish and were beat for most of the first period. Anaheim had 20 turnovers, compared to forcing the Predators into just 11 in that outing.
