Nashville has won its last six games against Western Conference opponents and they are 6-1 in their last 7 games overall. Chicago is just 1-4 in their last 5 road games. My picks is with Nashville as they are a home underdog despite being just as solid as Chicago this season. The Blackhawks seem to still be getting the benefits of winning the Stanley Cup last year.
