The Hurricanes are 21-8 in their last 29 games playing on 0 days rest and 4-1 in their last 5 Tuesday games. The Predators are 4-1 in their last 5 Tuesday games and 4-1 in their last 5 overall. The under is 3-1-1 in Hurricanes last 5 overall. The under is 6-2-1 in Predators last 9 home games. The Hurricanes are 5-0 in the last 5 meetings in Nashville and 8-1 in the last 9 meetings.

The Carolina Hurricanes are probably the better team here overall, but they're fresh off two physical, tight games against the Panthers, which included an overtime game last night. Could see some tired legs on the Hurricanes side. The Nashville Predators are also playing their best hockey of the season with wins in four of their last five games. The Hurricanes probably should be favored and have owned the Predators over the years, but the scheduling advantage has me leaning toward the home dog.
