The Ducks managed to even the series with the Predators thanks to a 5-3 win in Game 2. The Ducks have won three of five meetings with Nashville this season. Anaheim enters tonight’s game 55-26-14 overall and 21-16-9 on the road. Nashville is 50-32-12 overall and 29-9-8 at home.

Nashville got off to a 2-0 start in Game 2 thanks to Ryan Johansen and James Neal scoring. The Ducks rallied to take a 4-3 lead entering the third period. Nick Ritchie got the game-winning goal late in the period and Antione Vermette scored an insurance goal in the third. Pekka Rinne struggled in net for Nashville, stopping just 22-of-26 shots. John Gibson stopped 30 shots in the winning effort.

Bet on Predators vs. Ducks

The Ducks managed a win in Game 2 despite being outshot once again. Nashville has looked like the better team through a pair of games in Anaheim. I think they will continue to look like the better team now that they are at home. They are 5-0 at home in the postseason and still have a great goalie in Rinne. Pekka should bounce back nicely in Game 3. The Ducks will be relying too much on John Gibson, who still hasn’t shown the consistency I’d like to see. Go with the Predators at home tonight.
