NHL Odds: Forsberg Leads the Preds Back Home

PK Subban guaranteed a Predators’ victory in Game 6 and his team responded with their best effort of the season. From the drop of the puck that opened the game, Nashville dominated Winnipeg and frustrated Jets players and fans in the process. Filip Forsberg and Viktor Arvidsson scored two goals apiece, while Pekka Rinne bounced back after being pulled in Game 5 with a 29-save shutout. The series turns back to Nashville for the deciding Game 7 and the Preds will look to close it out on their home ice.

Although no team likes to miss an opportunity to close out a series, this series has been anything but predictable. Neither team has won two games in a row during this Semifinal matchup, and that trend favours Winnipeg. They’ve already won two games at Bridgestone Arena, and if they can make it a third, the Jets will book a ticket to the Western Conference Finals. Don’t miss the action starting at 8 PM ET.
