Pick

Both of these teams have three wins on the season and will be looking for win number four here. Nashville has won two games in a row and they have scored nine goals in those two games. That is a great sign for Nashville, as they opened the season struggling to score goals. Vancouver has scored four goals or more in three of their five games this year and this will be the fifth game of the road trip. I like how both teams have been able to score the puck recently and I think we are going to see a higher scoring game. Take the over in this matchup.
