Nashville Predators Take on Tampa Bay November 1st
I’ll admit that at first this game made my list for a selfish reason. I’m from Orlando, so whenever the Predators head down to take on the Lightning, it’s circled on my calendar. But selfish reasons aside, this is still a great game every season. Much like Winnipeg and Nashville, Tampa Bay is another high-powered scoring offense with a Veniza finalist in net. I’ve been fortunate to witness this game in person the past few years, and it’s always a great game.
Beyond just a matchup of two high-powered teams, another reason to be excited for this game is the Predators’ recent success in Tampa. In the past five years, the Predators have been 3-2 when playing at Amalie Arena. In 2017 and 2018, the Predators beat the Bolts 6-1 and 4-1, respectively. I’m hoping the big margins of victory continues this season when I’m there to witness the game in person. Plus, it’s always good to get a win against a team that’s sure to be at the top of the standings again.
