National Hockey league action on Sunday afternoon and the Central Division will square off with the Metro Division as the Nashville Predators duke it out with the Carolina Hurricanes at PNC Arena in Raleigh, North Carolina. The Predators enter this game off a 4-3 OT loss to the Blue Jackets on the road, while the Hurricanes are off a 4-3 home win over the Sabres.

Preds Fall To Jackets On The Road

The Nashville Preds have had their struggles on the road this year, but they did enter their game with Columbus riding a three-game winning streak (All on the road). Well, that streak is now over as the Preds fell to the Blue Jackets by a score of 4-3 in OT. The game was tied at 1-1 in the 3rd when the Jackets scored two goals in 11 seconds to take a 3-1 lead at the 13:43 mark of the final frame. The Preds then scored twice in 38 seconds a bit later to tie the game and send it to OT, where the Jackets eventually won it. That was a wild 3rd period for sure. Scoring in the loss was Nick Bonino, which was his 9th of the year. Viktor Arvidsson, which was his 14th and Mattias Ekholm, which was his 6th. Nashville is currently tied with the Jets for first place in the Central Division.  

Absorbing the loss to the Blue Jackets was Pekka Rinne, who allowed four goals on 33 shot attempts to fall to 17-13 with a 2.31 GAA and a .919 save percentage on the year, including 6-8 with a 2.62 GAA and a .916 save percentage on the road. In his career, he has gone 6-3 with a 2.05 GAA against the Hurricanes. The Preds have gone 12-12 on the road for the year and they have averaged 3.17 gpg and have allowed 2.88 gpg in the games. Nashville enters this game ranked 26th in power play conversions at 15.1% and 12th in penalty kill at 80.3%.

Canes Top The Sabres To Get Back On Track

The Carolina Hurricanes had a five-game winning streak snapped with a loss in Tampa Bay, but they were able to get back on track with a 4-3 home win over the floundering Buffalo Sabres. The Hurricanes still have some work to do as they are currently five points out of the 8th spot in the Eastern Conference, but this could be a team to watch over the 2nd half of the season. Sebastian Aho had a nice game against the Sabres as he scored twice and now has 18 on the year. Micheal Ferland (13th) and Justin Williams (12th) also scored in the win. The offense has woken up some of late as the Hurricanes come in having averaged 3.71 gpg over their last seven games. They hope to keep that offense going in this one.

Grabbing the win against the Sabres was Curtis McElhinney, who stopped 30 of the 33 shots that he faced to improve to 11-6 with a 2.30 GAA and a .921 save percentage on the year, including 7-3 with a 2.11 GAA and a .927 save percentage here at home. In his career, he has gone 0-1 with a 1.99 GAA in three games against the Preds. The Hurricanes have gone 12-11 here at home for the year and they have averaged 2.87 gpg and have allowed 2.65 gpg in those games. Carolina enters this contest ranked 24th in the league in power play conversions at 16.2% and 15th in penalty kill at 80.0%.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

I will look for the Hurricanes to take this one. The Canes have been playing well of late and the Preds are at the end of a long road trip. They should be a bit tired for this one. The Hurricanes have gotten their offenses going of late and the Preds have not been as good in the crease on the road as they have been at home. Take the Hurricanes in this one, especially since they are 5-1 in their last six home games in this series.  

Prediction: Carolina +107

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

I like the Over in this one. The Carolina offense has been playing better of late as they have averaged a solid 3.71 gpg over their last seven games. The Preds have been a solid offensive team all year and they hjave averaged 3.17 gpg on the road. The Over is 5-2 in Nashville’s last seven road games vs. a team with a winning home record and 6-2 in Carolina’s last eight in the fourth game of a 4-in-6 days situation.

Prediction: Over 6
