10* Nashville (8:05 ET): From here on out, almost every game pitting Western Conference teams against one another will have some sort of bearing on the playoff picture. Take this one, for example. Edmonton is in second place in the Pacific Division, but only four points ahead of the ninth place team in the Conference. Nashville is one of three teams tied for the final Wild Card spot. I think the sense of desperation is going to be greater here for the Predators, who are at home.
The Preds did just drop a game on home ice Saturday, but that was to a very good Colorado club that I consider to be the best team in all of the Western Conference. Before losing that game, Nashville had won three straight here at Bridgestone Arena. Their overall home record this season is a little disappointing, but they’ve played some of their best hockey all season recently in a 10-5-1 SU stretch. Also, take this for what it’s worth - the Preds are 40-12 SU their L52 Monday games. They seem to know how to start the week off right!
Edmonton comes in off a 3-2 win over Winnipeg Sat night, but that was at home and prior to it, they’d dropped 4 of 5 including road losses to Anaheim and Vegas. This team is just 7-15 SU off its L22 wins. Prior to losing a couple head to head matchups earlier this season, Nashville definitely had the Oilers number, winning 14 of the previous 15 meetings. 10* Nashville
