Monday's Stanley Cup Playoffs Betting Preview and Odds: Ducks at Predators

Monday's Stanley Cup Playoffs Betting Preview and Odds: Ducks at Predators

Not only did the Predators lose Game Four and the chance to take a 3-1 lead in the Western Conference Final, but they also lost their leading point-producer, Ryan Johansen, to injury.

It took until the 12:46 mark of the second period for either team to finally break through for a score. John Gibson stopped all 10 shots he faced for Anaheim, but had to leave the game with an injury and he is questionable to play today. Jonathan Bernier came on to play the final two periods of the Predators' 3-1 win.

With 40.3 seconds remaining in the second period, the Predators tied the game on a power play goal from Colin Wilson.

Both stayed back in Orange County with lower-body injuries.

Fisher, who is scoreless in 14 playoff games, also was scratched for Game 5, leaving Nashville without two centers. He hadn't missed a game since joining the Predators in a trade with Columbus in January 2016. And now they will be without Ryan Johansen for the rest of the Stanley Cup playoffs due to injury.

Aberg, who also has one career National Hockey League regular-season goal, was only in position to win it because the Predators were on a counterattack after a prolonged scramble in front of Nashville's net.

The Predators still haven't lost back-to-back games at any point in what's looking like a charmed playoff run for an 18-season-old franchise that's finally one game from playing for the Stanley Cup.

"We weren't good", Predators coach Peter Laviolette said.

"We knew coming into tonight that we've just got to come together, play well defensively and grind it out", Rinne said. "Obviously they have a major injury themselves, but we've got a couple of guys that are very key players for us as well". To avoid a return trip for a Game 7 to test that once again, they can eliminate the Ducks on Monday night in Game 6.

"The travel is a lot", Laviolette said.

Nothing appeared illegal about Manson's contact with either Nashville center, but the Predators have been frustrated by Anaheim's hard-nosed approach to hockey. "We need to step up". Defensively, the Anaheim Ducks are allowing 2.4 goals per game and are killing 84.7 percent of their opponents power plays.

"In my opinion, you can put [Forsberg] in the category of maybe two other guys, top three guys in terms of his skill and what he can do with the puck every night", Nashville defenseman P.K. Subban said.

Colton Sissons had the primary assist after he battled Anaheim defenseman Cam Fowler to give Wilson time and space to beat Bernier at the left post.

Nashville trailed 1-0 in each of its three wins in the series. Brandon Montour penetrated into the deep slot for a wrist shot that Rinne could not control.
