Kaapo Kakko – Knee/Lower Body – OUT (On LTIR)

Prediction: New York Rangers 3 – Nashville Predators 0
The Nashville Predators are a very mediocre team. While they have looked better than they did earlier in the season, the Rangers are a lot more talented than they are right now. Along with Jonathan Quick being a brick wall in the net, It would be tough to see the Predators scoring a goal in this game. So not only will the Blueshirts win, but Quick will get another shutout this season.
