The Anaheim Ducks have won three of their last five games–a relative hot streak by their lowly standards–heading into a home date with the Nashville Predators at the Honda Center on Tuesday night. Anaheim had been 3-1 in the span of four contests before falling to Los Angeles on Sunday. The Predators beat Minnesota in consecutive shootouts before falling to Carolina this past Saturday.

Need more offense

The Predators are trying to keep pace with Winnipeg in the Central Division but they also are hearing footsteps with third-place St. Louis just four points behind. They have gone seven straight games without winning in regulation as they play the first of three upcoming road games against lowly Anaheim. Nashville followed up a pair of shootout wins over Minnesota with a 5-3 home loss to Carolina, falling to 3-4-0 over its last seven contests.
“I feel like we need to produce more offense, get more zone time, longer shifts in their end,” defenseman Mattias Ekholm noted. “It’s hard for us to play defense all the time, that wears you down.”Twitter Ads info and privacy
 
 
Filip Forsberg, Nashville’ssecond-leading goal scorer who has lit the lamp just twice to go along with two assists in his last 10 games, returned to practice on Monday after sitting out Saturday due to an upper-body injury. Mikael Granlund, playing in his fourth game with the Predators since he was acquired from Minnesota, replaced Forsberg on the No. 1 line and delivered his first goal with the team.

A step way back

Anaheim made it three wins in four games with a recent 8-2 rout of Montreal before falling to Los Angeles 3-2 on Sunday.
“We’ve been playing pretty good, but that was a step way back,” forward Jakob Silfverberg admitted. “We got flat-footed against a team that wanted it more.”
Troy Terry was held off the scoresheet in Sunday’s loss but still was named the league’s Third Star of the Week, collecting two goals and five assists in the previous three games and becoming the first rookie in franchise history with back-to-back three-point performnces. Silfverberg scored for the third time during his five-game point streak to leave him one shy of reaching 20 goals for the third time in the past four seasons. Captain Ryan Getzlaf needs one assist to reach 30 for the 13th consecutive campaign.
