Stanley Cup Final Game 4 Betting Preview: Penguins at Predators
Covers.com

Pittsburgh Penguins at Nashville Predators (-155, 5.5)

Music City has provided quite the festive backdrop throughout the NHL's postseason, with the Nashville Predators giving their enthusiastic fans even more reason to party with an impressive 8-1 home record. Fueled by a resounding victory in the first Stanley Cup Final game played in The Volunteer State, the Predators look to even the series with the Pittsburgh Penguins on Monday when the teams reconvene for Game 4 at Bridgestone Arena.

"You know what, best atmosphere I've ever played in," defenseman P.K. Subban said after his team made good on his vow for a Game 3 victory with five unanswered goals in a 5-1 triumph on Saturday. "It was pretty spectacular. Anybody who paid the price of admission to watch the game, I'm sure it was money well spent for them." Pittsburgh's Jake Guentzel continues to pay dividends with a league-best 13 goals in the playoffs and four in the series, with the first statistic putting him within one of tying a single-year NHL rookie record (Minnesota's Dino Ciccarelli in 1981) while the latter has him one shy of the rookie mark for the Stanley Cup Final (Boston's Roy Conacher in 1939, Brad Marchand in 2011). Former Hart Trophy winners Evgeni Malkin (NHL-best 26 points) and captain Sidney Crosby (23 points) weren't as fortunate as they were each were held without a shot for the first time in their 143 playoff games together.

LINE HISTORY: The Predators opened as -145 home favorites and following the impressive performance on the ice (and by their fans) on Saturday night, bettors pushed the moneyline up to -155. The total hit the betting board at 5.5. Check out the complete line history here.

GOALIE MATCHUP: Matt Murray vs. Pekka Rinne

Murray - GP: 8, W/L: 5-2, 1.96 GAA, .930 SAVE %, 1 SO
Rinne - GP: 19, W/L: 13-6, 1.93 GAA, .931 SAVE %, 2 SO

INJURY REPORT:

Penguins -
C N. Bonino (Questionable, lower body), RW T. Kuhnhackl (Questionable, lower body), D C. Ruhwedel (Questionable, concussion), D K. Letang (Out for season, neck).

Predators - LW C. Wilson (Questionable, lower body), C R. Johansen (Out For Season, thigh), LW K. Fiala (Out For Season, leg).

ABOUT THE PENGUINS (64-27-8-5, 57-40 O/U): For all of his success, Crosby has failed to score a goal in 12 consecutive Stanley Cup Final appearances and has just one tally in his last 19 Final games. The 29-year-old, at least, contributed 15 of 26 faceoff wins in Game 3, while Malkin lost seven of nine in the circle. "I thought they had some looks," coach Mike Sullivan said of the superstar duo's difficult night. "They had some attempts. They didn't hit the net, obviously. Those are important guys for us. We want them to get pucks on the net because they obviously have the ability to score."

ABOUT THE PREDATORS (54-34-9-4, 46-43 O/U): While Subban mouthed the words for a guarantee, fellow defenseman Roman Josi went the extra mile to make sure it paid out as he scored a goal and set up two others in the second period. "Well, I think it's part of our system (which) allows us defensemen to jump up in the play," said Josi, whose six goals lead all blue-liners while his 14 points are second-best at the position (Ottawa's Erik Karlsson, 18) and just above fellow Nashville defensemen Ryan Ellis (12), Subban (11) and Mattias Ekholm (10). "Yeah, (coach Peter Laviolette) wants us to jump up and make something happen in the offensive zone, too."

TRENDS:

* Penguins are 8-3 in their last 11 Stanley Cup Finals games.
* Predators are 1-5 in their last 6 vs. Eastern Conference.
* Over is 8-2 in Penguins last 10 Monday games.
* Over is 3-0-2 in Predators last 5 games following a win.
* Home team is 6-0 in the last 6 meetings.

CONSENSUS: 61 percent are siding with the home favorite Predators and 52 percent of the totals wagers are on the Under.

Pittsburgh at Nashville Game 4 Odds, Picks & Predictions
By T. Wilkinson
Bangthebook.com

The Nashville Predators will look to even the Stanley Cup Finals on Monday night on NBC, as they host the Pittsburgh Penguins. The Penguins took the first two games in Pittsburgh, while the Predators dominated Game 3 in Nashville, winning 5-1. The Predators held Pittsburgh’s superstars, Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malking without a shot in Game 3 and they will look to keep the duo in check again on Monday night. Let’s look at Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Finals.

The Pittsburgh Penguins visit the Nashville Predators on Monday, June 5th in Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Finals, with a start time of 8 pm Eastern on NBC.

Penguins vs. Predators

The Predators are trying to play a speed game with the Penguins and in Game 3 it worked. Head coach Peter Laviolette replaced forwards Cody McLeod and Vernon Fiddler with Harry Zolnierczyk and PA Parenteau in Game 3. “When [Zolnierczyk] comes in the lineup, he brings speed, he brings energy, he brings physicality,” Laviolette said on NHL.com.

The Predators have been getting solid play from a lot of their role players. “Some of the roles have dramatically increased from what they might have been maybe two months ago,” Laviolette said. “We’re in a sink-or-swim situation. As much as we’d like to have [Johansen] in there and [Fiala] in there, with their longer-term injuries, that’s not going to happen.”

The Penguins had plenty of chances in Game 3 but did very little with them. “We had chances,” Crosby said. “We’ve just got to hit the net. They blocked some and it’s just a matter of winning those battles.” Head coach Mike Sullivan said the same thing. “We would like them to put more pucks on the net,” Penguins coach Mike Sullivan said. “I think they had opportunities to shoot that they passed up. I don’t think that’s always reflected in the statistics.”

Game Notes

The Predators have outshot the Penguins in every game, as they have a 97-67 advantage in the series. The Penguins are 41-14 in their last 55 after scoring 2 goals or less in their previous game. The Penguins are 61-25 in their last 86 games playing with 1 day of rest. The Penguins are 35-17 in their last 52 games following a loss of 3 or more goals.

The Predators are 20-7 in their last 27 home games. The Predators are 11-27 in their last 38 after scoring 5 goals or more in their previous game. The home team is 6-0 in the last 6 meetings in this series.

The Under is 9-3 in the Penguins last 12 Stanley Cup Finals games. The Under is 7-2-3 in the Predators last 12 home games. The Over is 5-1 in the last 6 meetings in this series.

Game 4 Stanley Cup Playoff Picks

The Penguins have yet to play a good game in this series and yet they still lead 2-1. Pittsburgh has been very good bouncing back from losses through the years and I expect an excellent performance from them on Monday. I will take the plus money and look for Pittsburgh to win Game 4.
