Canadiens vs Predators Free NHL Hockey Prediction Monday 21st 2015
12/21/15 Montreal vs Nashville pick. Goalies starting tonight. Canadiens vs Predators Free NHL Hockey Prediction Monday 21st 2015
Montreal Canadiens Preview
I’ve seen it for the past 20 years. Teams come out the gates flying high, ranking first overall in the standings, then go through a major slump. Mostly due to a key injury. However due to the Canadiens huge jump in the standings this is the perfect opportunity to go through a slump. Better now than later in the season.
On top of that they can show-case Mike Condon and Dustin Tokoraski for a possible trade before the dead line. You see hockey fans, injuries, although they suck, they do have an upside for prospects to be show-cased 😉
In my opinion trade bait Tokarski is that guy. He will start tonight. He’s 1-2 with a 2.95 goals against average on the year, this will be his first ever meeting with the Predators. For his sake, the French Frog Dwarfs better find a way to avoid the bone crushing Smashville checks.
Nashville Predators Preview
Offensively the Predators continue to slide. Sliding into the dirt because that’s as deep as you can get at this point. Filip Forsberg has not impressed with just 7 goals and Mike Ribeiro must have last year’s “rape” case still in his mind with just 4 goals. As a matter of fact, this Laviolette coached team get most of their points from the backend.
Netminder Pekka Rinne is 13-15 with a 2.38 goals against average overall, while at home he’s 10-6 with a 1.99 goals against average. Rinne has good numbers against the French Frog Dwarfs, going 4-2 with a 1.32 goals against average.
The Preds are 19th in scoring, putting up just 2.5 goals per game, while also ranking 9th in power play conversions 20.5%. On the defensive end of the ice they are 17th in goals allowed, giving up 2.5 goals per game, 28th in the penalty killing department.
Montreal Canadiens – Dustin Tokarski
Nashville Predators – Pekka Rinne
