Red Wings vs Predators prediction

The Red Wings are coming off a couple of nice wins over the Blue Jackets and Islanders, but we can't ignore the bigger recent body of work. Also, wins over below average teams don't exactly move the needle. The Predators are playing some of their best hockey of the season, as they're 8-0-2 in their last 10 games. The Preds are firing on all cylinders right now as they close in on a playoff berth. Hard to step in front of the Predators in their current form. I'll lay the juice with the home team in this Saturday afternoon contest.
