Nashville Predators vs. Florida Panthers Prediction

Battling for a playoff spot, the Predators host the Eastern Conference leading Florida Panthers tonight, in Nashville. The Preds currently occupy the First Wild Card spot in the West with a 2 point lead on Dallas. Nashville is also 6 points behind St. Louis for 3rd place in the Central. The Predators have won 2 in a row and 4 of their last 5 games. Most recently, they picked up a road win, in Ottawa, on Thursday night. The Florida Panthers have a 6 point lead on the Carolina Hurricanes for top spot in the entire Eastern Conference. The Cats have been playing with fire lately, falling behind in games. Last night was a similar story as they fell behind the Buffalo Sabres, 3-1 in the first period, before rallying back to pick up a 4-3 win.

At home, this season, where they have a 22-11 record, the Predators average 3.27 goals per game and their Power Play is a 10th best 24.1%. The Preds are allowing a 5th least 2.45 goals per game at home and their Penalty Kill is 15th at 81.5%. Nashville is 23rd in Five on Five scoring at home and they have given up the least Five on Five goals on home ice.

On the road this season, where they have a 20-9-6 record, the Panthers average 3.57 goals per game and their Power Play is 14th at 20.4%. The Cats are allowing 3.00 goals per game on the road and their Penalty Kill is 11th worst at 76.2%. Florida is 6th in Five on Five goals on the road and also 6th in goals against.

This is the second meeting of the season between these teams. Nashville picked up a 6-4 win, in Florida, in February. The Projected goalie matchup is Spencer Knight (2.91 GAA/.904 Save%) and Jusse Saros (2.55 GAA/.921 Save %). Florida has fallen behind some very bad teams lately and have had to rally back, that will be a much tougher task against a team that is primed to make the playoffs. The Preds play a heavy game and are a team that will give the Panthers trouble. I like the home dog tonight to pick up a win.

Duchene has hit this mark in 66% of his home games this season, where he averages 3.00 shots per game. He recorded 3 shots on goals in this season's previous meeting. Matt has also scored goals in 3 of his last 5 games so he should continue the shot pace tonight.
