Monday NHL Free Pick:
The Flames have the more potent offense between these two teams but the Predators match up well defensively. Calgary is more apt to kill a power play, but Nashville’s penalty killing unit is stronger, as is its goaltending. The underdog is 5-0 in the last five meetings between these two teams and the road team is 5-0 in the last five overall meetings. We look for Patric Hornqvist and Pekka Einne to continue to carry Nashville, which offers plenty of value at +114. Our pick is the Predators.
