Nashville took Game 2 of this series with a 5-0 thrashing of the Blackhawks. Nashville now has a 2-0 lead in the series with a 6-0 goal advantage. The Predators are now 43-29-12 overall and 24-9-8 at home while Chicago is 50-25-9 overall and 24-13-4 on the road.

The Predators started quickly in Game 1 and never looked back. Ryan Ellis scored 3:44 into the game and Harry Zolnierczyk and Colton Sissons scored in the second to make it 3-0. Ryan Johansen and Kevin Fiala would add goals in the third period as well. Peka Rinne recorded his second shutout of the series, making 30 saves. He has now stopped all 59 shots he has faced in this series. Corey Crawford struggled, stopping only 24 of the 29 shots he faced.

Bet on Predators vs. Blackhawks

Crawford is struggling, but will start again tonight in Nashville. The Blackhawks have their backs against the wall, which is always dangerous, but I have to take my chances with the Predators. Rinne is on a hot streak, which is always important in the playoffs. The Predators shouldn’t lack in confidence in scoring either, as five different players scored in Game 2.
