Nashville Predators vs Chicago Blackhawks 04/21/2021 Betting Odds:
Make it six in a row against Chicago this season. The Predators had their fair share of struggles this season, but it certainly was not the case in games against the Blackhawks. Backing up their dominance over their rivals was the fact that four out of the six victories have been collected in regulation. The one-sided affair itself is already something that the team can wax lyrical about, but there’s more to it than just bragging their clean slate against their rivals. Looking at the division race right now, the Predators and the Blackhawks are both at a critical stage. Nashville currently owns the fourth and final playoff spot with 51 points but Chicago is trailing closely with 47. As such, their respective positions would have been reversed had a prior game or two had gone the other way. But it is not to say that the Predators did not earn it. Whatever edge they have, they surely will capitalize on it as they aim to secure their ticket to the playoffs.
Players to watch: F. Forsberg LW (G 11 A 18 PTS 29), R. Josi D (G 6 A 22 PTS 28), V. Arvidsson RW (G 10 A 14 PTS 24).
The Predators have been a thorn on the side of the Blackhawks this season, but now is not the time for them to succumb to the former’s dominance – not with their season lives virtually on the line. The team is at the sixth spot of the Central Division but is just four games short of the fourth-placed Predators. In short, a late surge that would propel them into the playoffs remains very much in play. But before they pull it off, they must first pass the elusive test served by the Predators. In order to do it, the team must look ahead and put their head-to-head record against Nashville aside. It is a tough task, but if they commit their attention to detail, then they will surely give the Predators a run for their money.
Players to watch: P. Kane RW (G 15 A 42 PTS 57), A. DeBrincat LW (G 23 A 21 PTS 44), D. Kubalik LW (G 14 A 15 PTS 29).
