Randy’s Free Pick
The Vegas Golden Knights are the better team here, but they’ve had recent issues on the road and their defensive effort comes and goes. The Nashville Predators entered the break playing some of their best hockey of the season, and it will be interesting to see if they can pick up where they left off. Either way, the price is cheap. I’ll take a shot with the Preds on their home ice.
