Prediction for the NHL Colorado Avalanche vs Nashville Predators match, which will take place on May 4. Check the team conditions and choose several betting options.Get Your Welcome Bonus!
Having secured first place in the Western Conference, the Avalanche gave up the fight at the end of the season. In the final 7 games, the Avalanche lost 6 games and, incidentally, gave the President's Cup to Florida, the winner of the Eastern Conference. The Panthers scored 122 points in 82 games. Colorado had 119.
In their first-round pairing against Nashville, the Avalanche are of course the favorite. The only problem for the team might be the absence of the captain due to a knee injury. The Swedish forward was expected to be fit in time for the start of the postseason but failed to do so. However, even without Landeskug, Colorado would have little trouble beating the Predators.
John Hines' team qualified for the playoffs for the second year without being a top-8 team in the Western Conference. The Predators left behind Vegas, one of the strongest teams in recent years, and Winnipeg, also a powerful contender.
Goaltender Juuse Saros should probably be considered Nashville's most prominent hero of the season. The Finnish goalie, who became the undisputed starter for the Predators for the first time, won 38 of 67 games, had four shutouts, and finished the season with a 2.64 goals-against average. The unfortunate thing is that Saros was injured just before the playoffs and will not help the team in the series with Colorado.
Expert Betting Tips
Nashville barely made it to the playoffs and lost their primary goalie. Colorado barely played the rest of the regular season, preparing for the start of the 2022 Stanley Cup.
It's unlikely the Predators have any chance of success in the series with the Avalanche. Colorado will surely take revenge on Nashville for their three defeats in the regular season. They will likely finish the series 4:0 and confirm their class superiority in the first game.
