Chicago at Nashville

1.5 units on Nashville -178 (moneyline) (risk 1.5 to return 2.34) RESULT: LOSS
Thankfully for Nashville it returns home following a rough trip and it gets the Blackhawks, who the Predators defeated 3-0 on Oct. 29. Nashville has won the last three meetings and six of the last eight and the Predators still have Pekka Rinne in net and he owns a 2.60 goals-against average and 8-2-1-1 record. Corey Crawford is expected to start for Chicago and he is 3-4-1-1 with a 3.24 GAA. Rinne comes off two tough games, but he had 20 saves in Nashville's shutout against the Blackhawks in the first meeting. Chicago is next-to-last in the Central Division and the Hawks are 1-4 their last five games after scoring at least five goals their previous game. Also, Chicago is 2-8 its last 10 road games and 0-7 its last seven Saturday games. Play the Predators.
