Live Blog: Anaheim Ducks vs. Nashville Predators, Game 4

Kyle NicolasContributor IApril 21, 2011

Hello again, everyone! Bleacher Report Featured Columnist Kyle Nicolas here, giving you my live observations and analysis of an extremely important Game 4 between the Anaheim Ducks and Nashville Predators tonight.

The Ducks will be looking to rebound from a terrible performance in Game 3—one that saw them held to only 16 shots on goal in one of the most lopsided losses in Anaheim playoff history.

The 4-3 score didn't tell the full story, as the Ducks twice rallied back to tie (including two goals in the dying moments of the second period to even the game at 2-2), but ultimately the Predators' pressure was too strong.

On the other hand, Nashville will be looking to continue their dominance of Anaheim tonight. They've won five out of the seven meetings between these two so far this year (including the regular season) and every game played in Nashville.

Look for the Preds to come out strong; they know that with a win tonight they can go back to Anaheim for Game 5 with the Ducks' backs to the wall.

So keep it here for my thoughts and analysis as the game is played.
