The first round off the NHL playoffs are coming to a close with this last game in the west. This has been an odd series between the Anaheim Ducks and the Nashville Predators with the road teams winning the first four games. The puck has been hitting the net a lot too. The teams have combined for an average of almost five goals per game. This game will be at Honda Center and the last two have been won by the home team so the odds are against Nashville whom have never played in a game 7. Catch every power play goal online here!
The Ducks, however, do love to tank game 7’s. The last time Anaheim played a game 7, they lost to the eventual Stanley Cup winning Chicago Blackhawks. The Ducks were leading that Western Conference finals series in 2015 3-2, before dropping the final two games. The Ducks also lost game 7’s in 2013 to the Detroit Red Wings and then again in 2014 to the Los Angeles Kings. All lost at home. So the pressure is on Anaheim to break the cycle while Nashville can relax and enjoy their first game 7.
The San Jose Sharks are ready and waiting in round 2 for the winner of this game. The Sharks are looking strong after dispatching the Kings in five games of their first round series. The Dallas Stars will be playing the St. Louis Blues in the other western series. The second round in the east will see games between the Capitals and the Penguins and the Islanders and the Lightning.
