The Nashville Predators’ struggles only intensified during Week 6 of the 2013 NHL season. The team lost the first two games of a three-game road trip, finding themselves completely overmatched against Anaheim and unable to compete for most of the game against San Jose. Even their win against Dallas was suspect, requiring two comebacks and an overtime goal.

The Preds’ inability to win games in regulation earlier in the season is coming back to bite them right now, as the point spread between fourth and 11th place in the Western Conference has been cut to just two. The numbers bear witness to their futility of late.
