The month of February went exceedingly well for the Nashville Predators. We take a look at the best moments and what qualified for the worst.
February was a great month to be a fan of the Nashville Predators. There were multiple comeback victories that shocked and amazed us all. It was a month where the Predators took hold of the Central Divison lead and solidified their status as a Stanley Cup contender. Even with a couple of losses that could have been avoided, the Predators went 10-2-2 for the month. You’ll take that.
The team got healthier and added new parts. Ryan Hartman made an impact in his first game as a Predator by obtaining the game-winning goal against Winnipeg. Mike Fisher signed and is expected to play soon. There’s even talk of Eeli Tolvanen showing up, which makes one wonder how Peter Laviolette will juggle so many talented players going forward.
We saw history made by two of the franchise’s most important people. Pekka Rinne won his 300th game. David Poile tied the record for most wins as an NHL general manager. Where would Nashville be without either man?
At the end of February, the Nashville Predators sit on top of the Central Division by four points. They’re tied with the Vegas Golden Knights for most points in the Western Conference, having played one fewer game. It’s a good place to be.
Let’s take a look back at a successful month.
