Lsat night saw a very tight game between the Pittsburgh Penguins and the Ottawa Senators. The Penguins came out of it as 1-0 winners.

They will play tomorrow night in Ottawa with the series tied at 1-1.

Tonight we see Game 3 between the Anaheim Ducks and the Nashville Predators.

This series is also tied 1-1 after the first two games – both of which took place in Nashville.

In Game 1, Gibson found his net absolutely hammered and had to pull off 43 saves. It wasn’t enough as the Predators came out 3-2 winners in overtime.

The Ducks offense knew they couldn’t rely fully on Gibson for Game 2 and they stepped it up with a big 5-3 victory to tie the series up.

The two teams now face off tonight in Nashville.

Predators vs Ducks Game 3 Betting Tips:

Scott: Game 2 was won by the Ducks.  At one point in the first the Preds were up 2-0 but the Ducks came back and kept going to pick up the 5-3 win.

Rinne allowed only 16 goals through the first 11 games of these playoffs but was off in game 2 allowing 4 on 26 shots.

By the way game 2 played out it looks as though this is going to be a good and chippy series.  Kesler is doing what he does and getting under the skin of the other team.

With the series moving to Nashville I expect a better effort from the Preds.  But I can’t back them after what happened during the last game and will need to see how they respond.

No Bet

Graeme: This is a very interesting game. The Ducks have played 5 games on the road in the playoffs so far and won 4 of them. They’re going up against the Nashville Predators who have played 5 at home and won 5 at home.

Predators had quite the off game last time but I do like their home performances. They’ve been very solid here including holding off a feisty Chicago Blackhawks team in Game 3.

I have to go with the Predators tonight on the back of their impressive home form.

  • For tonight I am going with the over 5 @ 1.78.

    The offensives are clicking and Gibson has been a joke. He is young and a good goalie, and also has a lot of potential to be great. Although he isn’t yet that playoff goalie capable to carry the team. That’s the weakness of Ducks.

    I agree with Caesium, the over tonight.

    • Mojo

      Preds and Over. Gibson isn’t very good and almost single handedly lost them the Oiler series. Nashville gets at least 4 tonight. Prediction NSH 5 Anaheim 2

    • Let’s see! GL

  • Geir Aage R Jensen

    Ryan Ellis to score 68% 1unit
    Ryan Getzlaf to score 73% 2 unit
    I have a feeling that Anaheim will suprise and win, but no bet!

    Yesterday i got my bet in, Kessel to score 🙂

      Graeme what u think about the goal scores?

        I had looked at player props earlier today but nothing really stood out. Preds play a much different game at home I find – wanted to just go with the overall pick of them as opposed to any individual picks for either team until I see how they match up here.

    Good luck

    Im going with OT @ 3.85

    Predators have done a fantastic job bouncing back at home, but at the same time i think the Ducks have more offensive ability than the Blues, and i feel like they’re going to be really tough to put down in regulation tonight.

    On top of this these two teams are obviously very even.

    So a dead lock after 60 makes enough sense for me to give the higher odds a shot.
