Few could have projected the Tampa Bay Lightning disposing of the top-seeded Washington Capitals so quickly in the Eastern conference playoffs, especially with the top seed from the Western conference struggling in a similar situation. The Presidents trophy-winning Vancouver Canucks return home to battle the Nashville Predators on Saturday night, and while the situation and setting may have changed somewhat, the online sports betting goal remains the same.

Nashville Predators @ Vancouver Canucks

Saturday, 8:00 PM ET

The Canucks have done nothing the easy way so far this postseason, building up a three-games-to-none lead over the defending Stanley Cup champions only to watch it slip away, and then taking the decisive game seven on home ice. Vancouver will look to avoid a similar circumstance against the Predators after taking an early series lead, and not allow Nashville to gain any momentum on an MLB betting-packed Saturday.

Two of the first three games went to overtime with mixed results, but the Canucks are confident that they will be able to handle Nashville when the series shifts back to the Pacific coast. A question mark in the first series, Roberto Luongo has looked solid through the first few games, with one of the top save percentages in the league for second round series’. The Canucks have gotten a lot more shots on Pekka Rinne at the end of the ice, but it has been Luongo that has had to make the tougher stops in close. Unlike the Blackhawks which seemed to get in the head of Luongo, Nashville has not been able to rattle the 2010 Canadian Olympic gold medalist thus far.

While the Sedin twins continue to struggle to find their form, Ryan Kesler has been dominant so far in this series both in terms of the stat sheet and the intangibles. Kesler scored twice and added an assist to make his presence felt on all three Vancouver goals in a 3-2 win over the Predators, while the Sedin twins combined for just a single assist and went a minus-four. Defenseman Christian Ehrhoff has done an excellent job of stepping up when called upon and will be relied on to continue to provide a boost to the team’s offense by finding the open man moving up ice.

The Predators have struggled to find the back of the net in round two the same way they did in the opening round against the Anaheim Ducks, and Luongo has been a big part of that. However, as the Kentucky derby betting 2011passes by Nashville will need to find a way to get more bodies to the net and cause traffic so that the goalie can’t see the puck. The Predators have gotten by with hard work and determination, but now it is up to the offense to get some goals and make the difference in this series. The Canucks have done an excellent job of limiting opportunities against so far, and that will need to hold up.
