Randy’s Free Pick
The Los Angeles Kings are playing the better hockey entering this contest, and they have the offensive firepower to give the Preds concern. However, the Nashville Predators are at home, and they've beaten up on the Kings in recent meetings. I don't have as much confidence in the Kings on the road as I do at home, as that defense can be a bit leaky. Give me the Preds and the cheap price.
