The NHL is back in action on Thursday as the Nashville Predators will clash with the New Jersey Devils at the Prudential Center. The Predators lost their last game against the Sharks with a score of 5-4. On the other side, the Devils lost against the Flyers in the last game with a score of 5-2.
Nashville Predators Form
The Predators were one of the better teams last season. They had a solid start of this season too and had five wins in a row until they were stopped by the Sharks in the last game. On the positive side, Nashville has a solid 4-0 record in their away games.
On the offensive side of the game, the Predators are placed on the 11th spot in the league in scoring with an average of 3.4 goals per game. On the defensive side of the ice, they are the 2nd best team in the league as they allowed 2.2 goals per game so far this season.
New Jersey Devils Form
The Devils had a great start of the season this year as they enjoyed four wins in their four opening games. However, it seems that they have lost their focus recently as they have suffered two losses in their last two games. In the game against the Flyers, they played poorly and the loss of 5-2 was probably deserved. They will need to improve as they are facing the Predators – a team with one of the best players in the NHL.
The Devils have won three of their four home games with their only home loss was against Colorado last Thursday.
The Devils have scored an average of 3.7 goals per game, good for seventh in the NHL. They have conceded an average of 2.3 goals, pegging them fourth in the NHL.
The Devils had a good start of the season and that came as a surprise to many. However, it seems that they have dropped their form lately as they did not play well against the Flyers. On the other side, the Predators are a solid team with a stable defence this year. I expect a dominant Predators win in this game.
