Predators vs. Sharks Prediction

I’m on the Predators here. Nashville’s owned this matchup in recent years and just went toe-to-toe with some of the Western Conference’s toughest customers and knocked them off one by one. There’s also the fact that Nashville plays their best hockey on the road. San Jose has shown value in spots here and there, but this is the same San Jose Sharks team we’ve made a pretty penny by simply fading this season. Give me the Preds in this one.
