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.

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.

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.

No team is playing spoiler as well as the Predators, who have staved off official elimination thanks to a 6-1-1 record in the past two weeks. What could have been with Pekka ...

The offense has been clicking for the Predators with 24 goals in six games. If they're onto something and Pekka Rinne is his old self next season, the West gets even tougher.
03/24/20142222
Few teams can say it, but the Predators appear to have the Blackhawks' number with three straight W's vs. Chicago. Beating everybody else consistently is the problem.
03/17/20142224
Out of the race, the Predators still aren't an easy out, having won three road games this last week. You can't help but wonder if the Preds make some bigger changes this summer.
