Vancouver Canucks vs. Nashville Predators, 8PM ET (View Matchup)
Vancouver has won 5 of the last 6 games in Nashville and 9 of the last 12 overall meetings with the Predators. My pick for this game is with Vancouver, as they are clearly the better team on paper and Nashville is not that strong of a home team where Vancouver should be the underdog. Give me the Canucks to win by two goals.
