Nashville is 5-2 in their last 7 Tuesday games and 4-0 in their last 4 games following a loss of three goals or more. The under is 8-3 in Nashville’s last 11 games. Buffalo is 1-7 in their last 8 games and 0-4 in their last 4 home games. The over is 3-0-1 in Buffalo’s last 4 games. The road team is 15-6 in these two teams last 21 head to head meetings.


Both of these teams come into this game on a three game losing streak and both just lost 7-0 in their last game. Buffalo has really played poorly over the last two weeks and their playoff hopes have taken a hit. Nashville is closer to a playoff spot, but they need to turn things around quickly to have any chance. I am going to side with the Predators in this game, as Buffalo has allowed 17 goals in their last three games.
