UNDER Hot Between Sharks-Predators

It was quite clear who had tired legs and who didn’t in the first game of San Jose’s second-round series with Nashville, but the Preds have an opportunity to knot the series at one game apiece with a win in the Golden State on Sunday.

Shark Bites
  • The Sharks are 6-1 in their last 7 overall.
  • The UNDER is 5-2-3 in the Predators last 10 overall.
  • The UNDER is 7-1 in the last 8 meetings in San Jose.

San Jose erupted for five goals in the last 20 minutes of play for a 5-2 victory in that game. Nashville’s lack of success continues to be an issue for the club, as the Preds went 1-of-26 in the first-round against Anaheim.

Sharks forward Joel Ward has a history of coming up big in the clutch, and he collected an assist on the go-ahead goal on Friday. Ward scored seven goals in 12 playoff games for the Predators in 2010-11.
