NHL Odds: Predators Take Jets to Game 7

In a series featuring two of the NHL’s very best teams, it’s only fitting that there will be a Game 7.

While this series is tied at 3-3, Winnipeg has been the better team thus far, outscoring the Predators 22-18 over the first six games. Two of Nashville’s wins were by a single goal: Game 2, which they won 5-4 in overtime as –220 home favorites, and Game 4, a 2-1 victory as +120 underdogs in Winnipeg. All three Jets wins were of the blowout variety.

There was some good news for Winnipeg on Monday: Center Bryan Little (16 goals, 27 assists) played 13:07 and went 12-of-16 on face-offs, where he led the team during the regular season at 56.0%. Little’s status for Game 6 was uncertain after he missed Monday’s morning skate. Otherwise, the Jets are healthy for Game 7, as are the Predators, who went into the playoffs as +400 favorites to win their first Stanley Cup.
