Nashville vs Anaheim: prediction for the NHL fixture
Nashvilleexperienced a dip in form in their last away fixtures. The Predators suffered two devastating defeats to Toronto (0:3) and Montreal (3:6). The Preds' goalie Saros had a terrible game against the Canadiens, and was substituted off in the second period after he had conceded five goals.
But once back at home, the Predators got on a winning streak of three matches. Today they will be looking to extend it.
Anaheim just lost their impressive eight-game winning streak. The Ducks were defeated by Carolina (1:2) at home, but they looked very solid and put up a good fight against the Hurricanes.
Following mostly successful results at the start of the season, the Ducks are 4th in the Western Conference standings with 23 points in the asset.
In 5 head-to-head games in a row, the teams scored in each period.
In 3 out of 4 head-to-head games, Anaheim scored first.
Nashville are in good form and consistently earn points at home. Anaheim also are a strong home team, but they haven't been as solid away. The Predators should be able to eke a win here.
Our prediction - Nashville to win

We do not expect a barn-burner in this fixture, since the teams rarely score a large number of goals in head-to-head matches. Moreover, both sides have powerful defensive lines.
Second bet - total under 5.5 goals
