The Predators host Vancouver on Monday but being at home has not been good news in this series as the road team has won the last four games in the series. Make your NHL bet right now at the Sbg global sportsbook.
Canucks -130, total 5
Vancouver has been favored in every game in this series and that will be the case again in Game 6 on Monday night. Many people thought this series would end on Saturday night but Nashville proved that the Canucks are still vulnerable. Joel Ward and David Legwand each scored twice as the Predators won 4-3 as big underdogs on the road. Ward now has seven goals for the Predators in the playoffs and is turning into their best player along with goaltender Pekka Rinne. The Canucks got two goals from Ryan Kesler who has far and away been their best player in the series.
Sedin Twins Still Invisible
Not many people have said anything about the Sedin twins doing their playoff disappearing act again but if the Canucks lose this series they will be largely to blame. Daniel and Henrik Sedin have done next to nothing again in this series and it just continues a history of failure in the playoffs for the Sedins. Vancouver nearly blew the opening round series against Chicago but won in overtime in Game 7. If the Canucks don’t win on Monday night they would have another Game 7 in Vancouver in this series with that game set for Wednesday. The Sedins were a combined minus-7 in Game 5 and it is hard to like the Canucks as you make an NHL bet with those two players doing so poorly.
