Rangers vs. Predators Prediction and Pick

Despite the Rangers getting off to a solid start at 2-1-1, they haven’t been able to create many offensive chances. Heading into tonight’s game, they rank dead last in five-on-five high danger scoring chances per 60 minutes at 5.86. They also rank 26th in five-on-five shooting percentage at 5.48%.

The Predators have been the better team through the first few games of the season, both offensively and defensively when you look at the statistics. Given that they’re only a slight favorite at home, Nashville has to be the play in tonight’s game.

Pick: Predators -108
