Nashville Predators

Nashville Predators have been a stable top eight team over the past few years, but it is now outside the playoff zone. Such results are due to the fact that the Predators have some problems with their goaltenders. They can not boast a good safety factor, almost in every game they concede at least 3 pucks. It should also be noted that John Hynes’s players lack variability in attack, they don’t have many high-class forwards, thus laying the emphasis on organisation.

Nashville gave out a series of three victories for the first time in a long time, but couldn’t extend it any further because losing at home to Carolina (1-4). Let’s remind, that earlier Nashville has won over Islanders (5-0) and has twice achieved success against St. Louis (4-3 and 2-1).

The Predators have significantly improved their position in the standings and have already climbed to the tenth place of the Western Conference with 60 points. By the way, on the road the team won 16 games out of 30, which is a good result.

Chicago Blackhawks

Chicago Blackhawks has always been considered an outsider of the league, but in the middle of the season they gave a good series, thanks to which Blackhawks had a chance to get into the play-offs stage. However, lately they started to decline again. To date, Chicago has been based on the 12th position in the Western Conference, earning 60 points. Jeremy Colliton’s players suffered 7 defeats in 8 extreme confrontations. This indicates that they are in terrible game form. The only victory they had over Calgary Flames with an unimaginable score (8-4).

After that Chicago suffered two defeats. First on the road the team lost to Winnipeg (2-3), then played against the Rangers in the third period and lost (3-6). In the last game the team was not even helped by a double by Dominik Kubalik.

The main problem with this team is that they can’t keep the advantage in the score. In almost every game they score the first puck, and then immediately miss. It is safe to say that they does not have any stability in defense.

Predators vs Blackhawks Prediction

At first sight it may seem that both teams are equal in strength, but Nashville performs better than their opponent by all the indicators. This is even evidenced by the history of head-to-head games. Of course, Chicago Blackhawks will have a small advantage in the form of home rink, but it is unlikely to help him.

Blackhawks have dreadful statistics on the home ice, they play away better than they do it at home. Nashville, in turn, is one of the best guest clubs, they show stable results on the road, rarely having difficulties with the outsiders of the league.

Our prediction: Nashville Predators will win.
