This is a 1* free play on the Nashville Predators over the Edmonton Oilers on Monday night (8:05 EST).
These teams have played each other twice this season: Nashville won 6-0 at home on January 8th. Edmonton won 3-2 at home on March 17th. The Oilers are 11-12-7 overall, and only 6-7-3 on the road. Edmonton has lost two straight, including a listless 3-0 setback to St. Louis on Saturday (Blues goaltender Jaroslav Halak needed to stop only 19 shots for the shutout). Nashville is only 13-13-6 overall, but 8-2-4 at home. The Predators have won two straight, most recently a 5-2 destruction of the Columbus Blue Jackets on Saturday. Nashville would jump out to an early 4-0 lead in the first period and then cruised the rest of the way. The Predators sit just one game back of eighth place Dallas, and will look to keep the momentum rolling after totalling ten goals over their past two outings. The Oilers have a chance at redemption with a tough game in St. Louis tomorrow night, while the Predators enjoy two whole days off after this evenings contest. Consider laying the reasonable price on the hungry home side.
