Roll Over, Columbus

Can the Nashville Predators keep up their dominance over the Blue Jackets tonight in Columbus? They'll have to in order to keep their playoff dreams alive. Nashville is 14-0-1 in their last 15 against Columbus, but the Blue Jackets will be bristling for revenge after getting beaten on the scoreboard and in a few scraps during Tuesday's 3-0 Preds win in Nashville.

As for the teams they're chasing, Vancouver has lost Brendan Morrison for the rest of the season, dealing a blow to their already anemic offense. Colorado may have pretty much wrapped up their playoff berth with victories over the Flames and Canucks earlier this week; they'd have to really flop hard for both Vancouver and Nashville to pass them.

In other notes, the Preds are very concerned about Dan Ellis' ability to keep his weight up considering the steady work he's been seeing lately.

Since Cracker Barrel is one of the Predators' sponsors, maybe they could rig something like this onto Ellis' hockey helmet and load it up with sausage gravy. That should take care of the weight issue...

Also, the Falconer chimes in with another reason to love Nashville GM David Poile; based on team performance relative to salary paid, the Predators have been far and away the top team in the NHL coming out of the Great Lockout.
