Following along the same footsteps as my Eastern counterpart, welcome to the final of three parts looking at Western Conference teams games remaining and subsequent fantasy breakdown.

 

All NHL teams have between 19 and 22 games remaining in the regular season. But not all games are created equal. For the shrewd fantasy owner, there is opportunity here.

 

Thanks to the shootout, there are just two teams in the Western Conference that have a sub-.500 record. Alright, enough chit-chat, let's get started:

 

Nashville Predators

Home (18-12-2)

Away (17-13-3)

Total (35-25-5)

The biggest test for the Preds will be their next four games as they head on the road against the Thrashers, Sharks, Ducks and Kings. After that road trip, they'll have nine of the remaining 13 contests at home, which should give them a great late-season boost for the post-season push. Let's see if they can survive the next four games first.

 

3 Games – STL

2 Games – LA, PHX, DET

1 Game –
