Nashville Predators vs Arizona Coyotes. The NHL pick for this game is the Nashville Predators. As the regular season enters its final stretch, both the Nashville Predators and Arizona Coyotes find themselves in precarious positions outside of the playoff picture. Ahead of the trade deadline, Nashville made a series of moves to acquire draft picks for the future, signaling a shift towards a rebuild in the offseason. However, they can still salvage their season by winning games against teams with nothing left to play for. Unfortunately, they missed out on a chance to do so in their recent loss to the Vancouver Canucks. Nonetheless, the Predators possess a talented roster, despite trading away players such as Nino Niederreiter and Taylor Jeannot. Winning on the road won’t come easy, but it’s crucial for Nashville to do so if they want to remain in contention. Therefore, it’s predicted that the Nashville Predators will emerge victorious with a score of 6-3.
