Filip Forsberg lead the Predators in scoring with 29 points including a team-high 11 goals and 18 assists while Roman Josi has 24 points with a team-high 20 assists. Viktor Arvidsson’s on 21 points with 8 goals and 13 assists while Calle Jarnkrok, Eell Toivanen and Mikael Granlund each have double-digit goals this season.

Tampa Bay is 71-30 in their last 101 games overall and 65-29 in their last 94 games as a favorite while the over is 4-0 in their last 4 games as a road favorite. Nashville is 9-1 in their last 10 games overall in their last 5 home games while the over is 1-0-3 in their last 4 games following a win. Tampa Bay is 6-1 in the last 7 meetings between these two teams.
It’s been a hard matchup to call here as the Lightning have been the better team but the Predators are the better team lately. Instead, I’m going to side with the over as both teams have been on fire on the offensive end and while the goaltending’s been stellar, I think this is a shootout so give me the over.
