ANAHEIM DUCKS AT NASHVILLE PREDATORS – GAME 4 AT 8 P.M. ET ON NBCSN – PREDATORS LEAD 2-1

Nashville took a 2-1 series lead with a 2-1 victory in Game 3 at home on Tuesday night. Filip Forsberg scored the tying goal early in the third period, and Roman Josi scored the eventual game-winner on the power play with 2:43 left in regulation. The Predators outshot the Ducks 40-20 in Game 3, and their defensemen alone combined for 21 shots – more than the entire Ducks team. Four of Nashville’s top seven point-getters this season are defensemen.

The Predators are 6-0 at home this postseason and have won 10 straight home playoff games dating back to last year, the longest such streak since the Detroit Red Wings won 10 straight home games spanning the 1997 and 1998 postseasons. Nashville has yet to trail in a series at any point during this postseason.
