Boston vs Nashville
Thursday, February 16 2023
Boston will travel to take on Nashville on Thursday.
This is an important game for both teams in this National Hockey League match-up. The Boston Bruins come into the game with a record of 40-8-5, and are currently holding the first place spot in the Eastern Conference. Meanwhile, the Nashville Predators have a record of 25-20-6, and are sitting 10th place in the Western Conference.
Form-wise, both teams have been doing well lately but Boston has had the better form of late as they come into tonight’s game following a win over Dallas, while Nashville lost to Arizona. Form will be key to deciding who comes out on top.
Both teams boast some key players that could decide the result tonight. For the Boston Bruins, Patrice Bergeron and Brad Marchand are two key players that will be looking to make an impact on the game. Meanwhile for Nashville, Ryan Johansen is a key player who can have a major say in deciding the outcome of this match-up. The centre-man has been one of the leading scorers for Nashville with 38 points and is always capable of creating chances from nothing.
Boston vs Nashville Prediction:
Based on Form and Key Players, it looks like it could be a close affair between Boston and Nashville but we are going to give the edge to the Boston Bruins based on their recent form. They should have enough quality in Patrice Bergeron and Brad Marchand to see them through against a Nashville team that has had trouble finding the net recently. Our prediction is for a 3-2 win for the Boston Bruins.
