The Nashville Predators struggled to find the back of the net this season, averaging just 2.73 goals per game, ranking them 27th in the NHL. However, they have been decent defensively, giving up 2.86 goals per game, which is the 12th-best in the league. Nashville’s offense generates an average of 29.7 shots per game, which is 24th overall, while their defense allows an average of 33.2 shots per game, ranking them 27th overall. The Predators’ penalty kill unit has been performing well, succeeding 81.4% of the time, ranking them 10th, while their power play has struggled, scoring just 17.6% of the time, ranking them 27th.

Unfortunately for Nashville, they will be missing some key players due to injury, including their leading goal scorer Matt Duchene (22), their top assist provider Roman Josi (41), and their top point scorer Josi (59). Another significant loss for the Predators is Filip Forsbert (19), the 2nd-leading scorer, who is also out with an injury. This puts more pressure on Tommy Novak, who leads all active goal scorers with 18 goals and has the most assists with 24. Despite the absence of the top three point scorers, Novak still tops the remaining players with 41 points. In 77 games, the Predators scored 43 power-play goals, but the three injured players accounted for 17 of those goals. Juuse Saros has been solid in goal with a record of 30-22-7, a goals-against average of 2.76, a save percentage of .916 and one shutout.

Carolina Hurricanes vs Nashville Predators. The NHL pick for this game is the Carolina Hurricanes. Following the trade deadline, the Nashville Predators’ roster has taken a hit. Their top three-point contributors, Matt Duchene, Filip Forsberg, and Roman Josi, have collectively scored 59 goals and made 98 assists. Facing off against the Carolina Hurricanes’ strong defense and skilled goaltending, who currently have the second-lowest goals allowed per game in the NHL, it’s no surprise that Nashville has been struggling to put up points, averaging only 2.73 goals per game. Although the two teams have split their previous five meetings, Carolina has been dominant on the road, winning 10 of their last 14 away games, while Nashville has struggled in their previous 12 home games against Carolina, losing eight of them. Based on current form and recent history, it’s safe to predict that the Carolina Hurricanes will take this one, likely with a final score of 9-3.
