A bold move by the down two games is the focus of HRWager’s Stanley Cup Free Pick. Nashville gambled with their lineup last game and it came up jackpot. A dominant 4-1 win not only has them back in the series but has resulted in faith from the linesmakers as well. A -110 to -115 price range have the Predators the home favorite but will they bring home the profit on Thursday?

Stanley Cup Free Pick : Benching Ribeiro
This went beyond bold as the 36 year old brought it in the regular season. 50 points in 81 games is nothing to sneeze at but he seems to have hit the wall. It is not fitness but just the ravages of time. They went with a rookie making his NHL debut as the replacement for a healthy scratch. Pontus Aberg was brought in for an attempt to keep up with the fast skating Sharks. While he did not get a point, it did help the Predators play more up tempo and convincingly beat San Jose.
Reasons to Believe in the Predators Thursday
Captains are put in places of leadership to come through when times are most dire. Nashville’s leader did so with Shea Weber netted the game winning goal. Also the Pred’s goalie looked good for most of the night. First goal was completely Peeka’s fault as his thought pattern of beating a skater to the puck did not go well at all. After that loose goal, he was a stone wall all night long. Finally, Colin Wilson created so many opportunities that Nashville could not do anything but thrive.
Game two’s lose laid the foundation as the Preds started to turn the corner. Game Three saw the culimination of all that work pay off with a bold lineup move. So much is going well for Nashville that San Jose will not get their bearings until they come home for Game Five. HRWager’s Stanley Cup Free Pick is Nashville ML win for 5/5. Good fortune and enjoy this game on Thursday evening with hopefully more money in your bankroll.
