Predators vs. Golden Knights Prediction

I’m on Vegas here. The Golden Knights in my eyes are just the better team and they’ve been far better at home this season and while the Preds have been really good on the road, it’s just hard for me to make the case for them when Vegas has won 4 of the last 5 meetings handily. Give me Vegas at home in this one.
