INJURY TO WATCH
Winnipeg center Mark Scheifele (upper body) is out tonight, while fellow center Adam Lowry (upper body) is out until late March. Defensemen Toby Enstrom (lower body) and Dmitry Kulikov (upper body) are both questionable. As for Nashville, there are no injuries to report.
The Predators have won two of three meetings this season with all three going over the total. Nashville has won six of the last 10 meetings, while the over is 7-2-1. My thinking with this game is that we have a fresh team in the Predators that had their 10-game winning streak end with a 3-2 home shootout loss to the Devils Saturday night. Meanwhile, the Jets are on a back-to-back after falling 3-2 in overtime at the Capitals last night. I say take the well-rested team that is playing unbelievable hockey and still picked up a point last game despite the win streak ending.
