I predicted a Ducks win over the Preds by 5 - 4 and the reality is that the Ducks lost 3 to 2, in Anaheim, in Overtime. It was brutal for Duck's goalie John Gibson. NHL.com:
Nashville outshot Anaheim 15-6 after one period, 32-17 after two and 46-29 in the game.93 shots for Edmonton, and 52 for Anaheim. Yeah.......a bit of a discrepancy there, not a shot span any coach likes to see.
The Ducks have been rendered ineffective when the power play has been to their advantage. (This is common with the MN Wild also, and I just can't figure out why). When you have that extra man advantage, you have to, somehow, work that puck into your opponent's net.
The Puck hits The Ice tonight in Pittsburgh hosting the Ottawa Senators in Game 1 in their series.
My prediction yesterday was
Ottawa 2, Pittsburgh 1.
Let's see what happens.
