Predators vs. Devils Prediction

I’m on the Devils here. It’s pretty much do or die time for the Devils as the Devils are in a position where they have to win out and get a lot of help to leapfrog teams in the Eastern Conference and steal that final Wild Card spot. The Predators have a bit of a cushion for their Wild Card spot, and it feels like this Nashville team is backing into the postseason at the moment. New Jersey’s played their best on the road this season, but I think this is a spot where the Devils get it done on home ice. Give me New Jersey in this one.
