No team has allowed fewer goals than the Preds and it looks more and more like they're a playoff-bound team. Mike Ribeiro has proven to be an inspired addition to the team wiht 25 points in 29 games.
12/09/201478
While Filip Forsberg and Pekka Rinne get the headlines, Nashville's defense has been about as good as it always seems to be. Shea Weber, Roman Josi and the emergence of Ryan Ellis have played a big role.
12/02/201489
The Preds lead the Central Division and continue to make a case that they're going to be hanging around for a while. Pekka Rinne and Filip Forsberg have been incredible.
11/25/201499
Nashville remains one of the league's stingiest teams, allowing just 2.05 goals against per game. It's not just the brilliant Pekka Rinne. The Preds' defensive corps has been exceptional.
11/18/201499
Led by impressive goaltenders, rookies and defensemen, the Preds have one of the league's best home records. They also have been more than holding their own in what appears to be the league's toughest division.
11/11/201499
Nashville just seems to keep finding a way this season, winning four of their last six. That's a lot easier to do when your goaltender is stopping 93 percent of the shots he faces, of course.
11/04/2014911
The Preds sport the league's highest PDO (a metric tied to good fortune), but they've also been strong in the possession game and have ridden Pekka Rinne to great success.
10/28/20141113
The Preds are going to get asked this a lot over the next few weeks: "Are they for real?" They still could afford to score more, like we say every year, but the defense and goaltending have been spot on.
10/21/20141311
The Preds are more exciting to watch, but their strong goaltending has covered up some blemishes. High save and shooting percentages often can't last at the level they're at for Nashville.
10/14/20141119
It's only two games in, but Peter Laviolette's new offense-friendly system seems to be taking hold in Nashville. They have the speed to play at the pace Laviolette expects and it's led to back-to-back wins.
