Predators’ ridiculous goal pace
The Predators are piling up the goals through ten games. They just shattered a franchise record of most goals through ten games. Three different teams had 35 goals, but this year’s Predators have 42 goals. The Predators are also leading the league in goal for per game, just ahead of the Colorado Avalanche, the team they’re currently chasing in the division.
It’s hard to say if the Predators can keep this pace up, but honestly I don’t see why they can’t. They’ve maintained this great pace without Forsberg for the last four games. Their depth is starting to come alive with players like Colton Sissons, Kyle Turris and even some fourth line guys. Imagine what will happen if Viktor Arvidsson, Matt Duchene and Forsberg start hitting on all cylinders again.
I believe the Predators are an easy lock to finish in the top-five of the league in total goals by season’s end. Can they finish at the very top and also carry this into the playoffs? I’m feeling very confident that they can. They’ll hit their minor slumps like every team does, but it won’t last long This offense is legit and gives the Predators a chance at making a comeback against anyone.
