The Western Conference is where the action is Sunday, so we’re sinking our teeth into a pair of Pacific Coast matchups that feature four likely playoff teams.

In Nashville, the Predators are running hot and are now on the second line, behind Vegas, to represent the West in the Stanley Cup at +350. They will look to continue their recent form with a win over the Blues, who have hit a bit of a rough patch.

We also dig into an intriguing tilt between Minnesota, which is third in the Central after a 6-2-2 run, and San Jose, which is hanging on to second place in the Pacific.

Information is current as of Saturday evening. Check back during the day and keep an eye on our Twitter handle for any updates.

Great Expectations: Even though their expected goals (xG) percentage is just a tick over 50% (50.02), the Predators have a Goals For (GF) percentage of 55.92%, meaning they’ve scored nearly 56% of the goals compared to their opponents at 5-on-5. The almost six percentage points between their GF% and their xGF% suggests the Preds are overperforming their underlying metrics. — Michael Leboff
