In your free NHL hockey picks and predictions tonight, it will come down to a game seven, winner take all finale for the Predators and Sharks tonight at the SAP Center. It’s all tied up at 3-3 in this series. If Nashville advances, it will be their first conference finals ever, while if San Jose grabs the win, it will be for the third time since 2009. In six games, it’s been the home team who has come out on top in this series, so the Sharks will look to keep up that streak and move forward tonight.
Nashville Will Have to Keep Hitting
The Predators (3-3) have been going strong on close games throughout the playoffs so far, including two overtime matchups in this series against the Sharks. Mike Fisher leads the team with five goals, while Roman Josi has eight assists to his name. Defensively, the team is allowing 2.6 goals per game, thanks to Pekka Rinne in the crease. He’ll get the call again tonight. Rinne has allowed 33 goals on 378 faced shots. He’s given up ten goals in his last three games.
San Jose Must Get Back to Speed Hockey
The Sharks (3-3) know what it’s like to be in this position, and would likely love to head back to the conference finals for the third time in seven years. They’ve been playing solid hockey, despite the game seven situation, scoring 11 goals in just the last three games. Leading the way for the Sharks is Joe Pavelski, with eight goals, followed by Brent Burns with 11 assists. It will be Martin Jones in the net tonight. Jones has allowed nine goals in his last three games. The Sharks are 4-0 in their last four games at home.
