Power Rankings
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.
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.
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.
Dear Pekka Rinne: Sorry we forgot how to score; three goals in four home games to all but end our season isn't what we had in mind for your return. Signed, the Predators.
Pekka Rinne is back with the Predators but the question is; is it too late? Maybe not. The team did its job to stay close enough to playoff position; they're four points out.
The Predators aren't out but they are down after losing three in a row, though two of them did come beyond regulation. Plenty of their players will get a good rest, but will it help?
Like Dallas and Winnipeg, the Predators are only four points back of that last playoff spot, somewhat hard to believe with their goaltending and minus-30 goal differential.
Usually when teams make the trip to the three Western Canada cities they lose in Vancouver and win the two in Alberta, not the other way around as the Predators just did.
Hard not to wonder where the Predators are with Pekka Rinne, especially as the Preds found their offense this week to win two of three. The .900 team save percentage not so hot.
Preseason Power Rankings
Early returns show a new season, same problem; they don't have a lot of scoring. It will remain a big issue.
