Nashville Predators at Dallas Stars

Confirmed

04/15/19, 1:31 pm EST

Rinne will start Game 3 in Dallas.

Rinne stooped 22 of 23 shots in the Predators 2-1 overtime win in Game 2. Rinne has been far less busy than Ben Bishop through two games but has played just as well, stopping 48 of the 52 shots (.923 SV%) that he has faced so far. Rinne was solid on the road this year, posting a .915 SV% in 27 appearances, so the series shifting to Dallas should not affect him too much.

-1.5 (238)

Bishop will start Game 3 vs. the Predators.

Bishop stopped 40 of 42 shots in the Stars 2-1 overtime loss in Nashville in Game 2. Bishop was outstanding for the second straight game and has now stopped 70 of the first 74 shots (.946 SV%) that he has faced in the series. Goals have been equally hard to come by at the other end of the rink, so Bishop will have to play great again in Game 3 if the Stars are going to take a 2-1 series lead.

Calgary Flames at Colorado Avalanche

Apr. 15, 2019 | 10:00 pm EST
1.5 (224)
Confirmed

04/15/19, 2:52 pm EST

Smith will start Game 3 in Colorado.

Smith allowed three goals on 39 shots in the Flames 3-2 OT loss to the Avalanche in Game 2. It wasn't as impressive as his Game 1 shutout, but Smith was tough to beat once again and the Flames will continue to be the favourites to win this series as long as he is playing well. Smith was 10-8-1 with a 2.64 GAA and .908 SV% on the road this season but playoffs Mike Smith seems like a different goalie.

Grubauer stood tall in Game 2, allowing just two goals on 37 shots to allow the Avalanche to sneak away with a 3-2 OT win and a tied series heading back to Colorado. Grubauer has posted a .926 SV% through two games and was 10-5-1 with a 2.56 GAA and .913 SV% at the Pepsi Center this season.
