The Calgary Flames travel south to Nashville to take on the Predators. Lightning Locks is here to break down the game and share his pick.

Nashville Predators vs Calgary Flames Prediction: Expect Goals in Nashville

The NHL regular season is ending this week but we still have some things that need to be decided . One of those games is the Calgary Flames visiting the Nashville Predators tonight. Calgary is going to win the Pacific division as they have a huge lead but they would still like to move past Minnesota and St. Louis who have one more point than them for home ice. Nashville is in a three-headed fight for two spots to make the playoffs as it looks like the Golden Knights are done after that last loss to San Jose in overtime and the Kings are in the lead for the seventh spot with 96 points. This leaves Nashville and Dallas fighting for that last spot and tonight Nashville is a home dog while Dallas is a favorite against those Golden Knights.

Nashville Predators vs Calgary Flames Prediction

It’s pretty simple for Nashville tonight, if they beat Calgary In regulation they clinch a playoff spot so the pressure is on and they know their defense has been pretty bad lately giving up 5,6,8,3 goals sandwiched around their home win over Calgary last week. In a rarity, they won taking more shots as this team is awful with shots on goal (Sog) both offensively and defensively. Offensively they are 24th in the league with 30 Sog a game but defensively they are 21st giving up 32 Sog. The bottom line is they score and then they give it right back which is why this team has gone over four of the last five games and can’t be trusted to stop a top offense like Calgary.

The Flames don’t have much to play for but they still want the second-best record in the Western Conference and with a few games left they are in a battle for that and are not trying to lose any games. They are 9-2 in their last 11 games and one of those losses was the shootout loss to this same Predators team from last week, where they had the least amount of shots all year with 21. That game was so bad for Calgary if you compare the two before it they had 41 and 35 shots and the two after it they had 37 and 31. This game might have been their worst of the year so they will be ready to make up for it as they averaged six goals in those four games (24 goals total).

We have said it before this game is meaningful and we have the sixth and twelfth best offenses playing tonight in a rematch of a five-goal game that was all defense and one of Calgary's worst offensive performances this season. With Calgary over 5-1-1 in their last seven and Nashville over four of their last five and both teams playing for so much, especially Nashville we expect them to do everything they can to win in regulation so they clinch a spot. But whether they do or not won’t matter as our play is the over six goals -120 tonight in Nashville. Forget who wins, let's see both teams score and give one back. We fully expect at least seven goals tonight so play the over and root for both teams.
