#3: Preds go toe-to-toe with arch rival Dallas and get the 4-3 win

Going back to the 2023 preseason predictions, I always held the Dallas Stars as one of my top Stanley Cup contenders, and the Predators managed to split the season series 2-2.

We'll just gloss over that 9-2 debacle since this is a list about the best wins, not the most embarrassing losses. But on January 6 on the road in Dallas, the Predators made a significant statement with the midway point of the regular season approaching.

The Predators had a 2-0 lead in this one and had to push back after Dallas did what great teams do, which is never go down without a fight. The Stars would tie it at 2-2 going into the third period, and it just kind of felt like the Predators were on the fast track to getting one of those dreadful "moral" victories.

In what was a theme of the entire season, Filip Forsberg came to the rescue and did want superstar players are expected to do; perform in the clutch moments to push their team to victory.

Forsberg would score two goals in the third period with Ryan O'Reilly assisting on both, and Kevin Lankinen would finish with 26 saves and hold off Dallas' attack just enough to avoid going to overtime altogether.

The Nashville/Dallas rivalry has been steadily growing in intensity since the 2019 first round elimination, so anytime you can beat them on their home ice it's going to make a list for best wins.
