Nashville Predators Schedule: Week 6


The Nashville Predators schedule for Week 6 features only three games instead of last week’s four. Two of those are against borderline teams. The other is against the second-best team in the Western Conference. Things just don’t get easier in this crazy season…

2013 NASHVILLE PREDATORS SCHEDULE

WEEK 6

Monday, February 25th
vs. Dallas Stars (9-8-1)
7:00 p.m. CST
NBC Sports Network

The Predators will get one last game at home before hitting the road for the next three. This game will give fans a taste of what life would be like under the proposed NHL realignment plan, which would have Nashville play the Dallas Stars six times per year. So far as this season goes, Dallas is one of the borderline teams the Predators need to beat to make the playoffs. This will be Nashville’s first game in 2013 on the NBC Sports Network.

Nashville has played two tight games against the Ducks already this season. Both ended in shootout losses. Anaheim has won more shootouts (4) than any other team in the league, and those wins account for a third of the points it has collected this season. As of right now they’ve won their last five games. Paradoxically, that might actually be good news for the Predators, most of whose wins have come against strong teams.

Saturday, March 2nd
at San Jose Sharks (8-6-3)
7:00 p.m. CST
FOX Sports Tennessee

You know you’ve had a good start when you can lose seven games in a row and still be in playoff contention. Two of the nine San Jose Sharks losses in February have been at the hands of the Predators. San Jose still picked up points, one in a 2-1 shootout and the other in a 1-0 overtime loss. This time around they’ll be back on home ice, which they haven’t seen since February 9th. If anything can invigorate a team it’s a hometown crowd. This marks the final time Nashville will face San Jose this season.
