7* Wednesday NHL NSH/ANA
Nashville vs. Anaheim,
02/27/2013 22:00 EDT,
Score: 1 - 5
Money Line: +114 Nashville
The Anaheim Ducks host the Nashville Predators on Wednesday. Anaheim is coming off a 5-2 loss to Los Angeles, while Nashville beat Dallas in overtime their last time out, 5-4.
The Predators have won six of their last seven meetings with Pacific Division opponents.
Nashville captain Shea Weber has broken out of his early season slump, racking up three goals and four assists for seven points in his last seven games.
Nashville goaltender Pekka Rinne has been making his case not just for the Vezina Trophy as the league’s top netminder, but also for the Hart Trophy as the NHL MVP. Rinne has posted a 1.90 GAA and a .926 save percentage on the season, and has racked up a 1.94 GAA and a .930 save percentage in 15 career starts versus Anaheim.
The Ducks allowed five goals in their last outing against the Kings, and that doesn't bode well for them on this night, as the team is 2-5 in their last seven outings that followed a game in which they allowed three or more goals.
The Predators are 6-2 in the last eight meetings between these teams and 5-2 in their last seven trips to Anaheim. Take Nashville.
Good Luck, Razor Ray
