We’ve made it past the NHL All Star break, and now the Nashville Predators will look to finish off their remaining 36 games with an eighth-straight playoff appearance.
The Predators had a strong showing over All Star weekend as Roman Josi scored a goal and nearly won the first ever Fountain Faceoff challenge, while Juuse Saros performed in the Save Streak challenge and made 10 saves over two games in the 3-on-3 tournament.
You’re not wrong if you’re calling the Nashville Predators the biggest surprise of the NHL so far this season. In what was tagged by many as a rebuild season, the Predators have the second-most points in the Western Conference, only trailing the Colorado Avalanche.
The challenges remains for this team to avoid a long losing slump as the margin is still thin in this crowded division race. Only three points separates the Predators, Wild and Blues for that coveted top-three spot in the division.
Here’s our post-All Star break goal and expectations for the rest of the season for the Nashville Predators.
