Nashville Predators look for 3-0 lead over Colorado Avalanche

Predators are 6-0 in the last 6 meetings in Colorado and over is 6-1-1 in the last 8 meetings in Colorado and over is 21-8-2 in the last 31 meetings.

Nikita Kucherov, Brayden Point and Tyler Johnson also scored for Tampa Bay, which is up 2-0 in the series after going 0-2-1 against the Devils during the regular season. In Saturday's Game 2, MacKinnon somehow fought off Filip Forsberg, muscled through Ryan Ellis and got a ridiculous backhand past Rinne to keep things close in an eventual 5-4 Preds win.

The Lightning scored three times in a 2:47 span in the second period, and the reeling Devils pulled goalie Keith Kinkaid after Killorns third goal in two games made it 5-1 with 6:48 remaining in the period.

The Avs would score one more time for the final score, 5-4, and suddenly Colorado found out why it's so hard to win in Nashville. Colorado is not playing all that well overall at the moment as they have now lost seven of their last 10 games, but still, no matter what happens the rest of the series, this season has been a success for them after posting the fewest points in the league previous year. "I felt like we did enough to nearly earn a better result but now we're going to have to go and dig in even harder to make sure we do earn a better result".

MacKinnon has been productive despite his line - which includes Mikko Rantanen and captain Gabriel Landeskog - being the focus of the Predators' defense.

"That was unbelievable", Predators forward Austin Watson said. "I mean, you don't have the year he had this year without being a pretty incredible player".

Lets predict; Tottenham vs Man City who do you think would win???
The two sides met back in December when Manchester City ran to a comfortable 4-1 victory under the lights at the Etihad Stadium . Crystal Palace is even money at plus-1 goals, which conjures up a scenario where they nearly manage to cadge a 0-0 or 1-1 tie.

The supernatural thriller stars Lucy Hale and Tyler Posey as spring breakers caught up in an innocent game that turns deadly. That's an impressive number for a movie that reportedly cost about $3.5 million to make and was shredded by critics.

"I think we've got that under our belts now and we're excited with how we played and coming back home in front of the fans", Kerfoot said. Nashville won't take Colorado lightly because it knows how risky a No. 8 seed can be.

But Nashville has a healthy squad that has won 12 straight against Colorado dating back to the end of the 2015-16 season. The team announced defenseman Samuel Girard would be out just before the start of the game with an upper body injury, Duncan Siemens filling in. Great example tonight: Find a way to get a lead and they were resilient and crawling back into the game.

Ryan Hartmans empty-net goal with 1:09 left wound up the victor as the Nashville Predators held off the Colorado Avalanche 5-4 on Saturday for a 2-0 lead in their first-round Western Conference series.

The Avalanche felt Johansen should have been suspended but the league didn't agree. And, entering the Nashville series, he wasn't alone. A win in Game 3 will make it almost impossible for Colorado to win the series, and the young team knows it.

"There's definitely no quit on their side", Johansen said of the Avs. This will pay major dividends as the playoffs get deeper and their top players stay fresh.

Added Avs center Nathan MacKinnon: "We have lots of confidence here and we've shown that with a good record".
