|Date & Time||Saturday November 15, 2014, 7:00 PM (EST)|
The Line: Nashville Predators -165 / Winnipeg Jets +150 --- Over/Under: 5
The Nashville Predators and the Bridgestone Arena welcome the Winnipeg Jets to town Saturday.
The Winnipeg Jets stay on the road when they pay a visit to Nashville on Saturday night. The Jets are looking to build on their 3-1 decision at Carolina on Thursday to cool off the Hurricanes. The Jets were strong at both ends of the ice with Blake Wheeler scoring in the first and second periods with Michael Frolik putting the game out of reach with an empty netter. Mark Stuart and Mark Scheifele each added a pair of helpers to make a winner of Michael Hutchinson and his 22 saves. The Hurricanes lone tally came off the stick of Elias Lindholm with Cam Ward recording 34 saves in defeat as Winnipeg improved to 5-0 in the last five visits to Carolina.
The Nashville Predators look to kick off their homestand with a victory over Winipeg in Saturday action. The Predators are hoping to rebound from a 4-3 defeat at the hands of St Louis on Thursday night which put an end to a three game winning streak. Filip Forsberg stayed red hot with a goal and a pair of helpers for Nashville as he scored in his 6th straight contest. Roman Jossi also lit the lamp for the Preds with Pekka Rinne stopping 23 shots in the loss. Red hot St Louis received goals from Paul Stastny, TJ Oshie, Carl Gunnarsson and Vladimir Tarasenko with Jake Allen recording 22 saves to give the surging Blues wins in nine of ten.
The under is 6-0 in Jets last 6 road games and is 6-0 in Jets last 6 vs. Central while going 6-0-1 in Jets last 7 vs. Western Conference. For Nashville the under is 4-0 in Predators last 4 Saturday games and is 7-1 in Predators last 8 vs. Central while the Predators are 7-1 in their last 8 vs. a team with a winning record. Head to head the under is 6-1-1 in the last 8 meetings and the Jets are 1-4 in the last 5 meetings in Nashville. The trends lean to the Predators and the under but I need to see a line and goalies before making a decision...
