If you're craving a little Nashville Predators talk during your afternoon, just give a listen to beat writer John Glennon's segment on the Thom Abraham Show from earlier today. They talk about how the team has continued to play well despite a host of injuries, and where the Preds fit into the Western Conference playoff picture. You can listen to the MP3 via the link below:
There is a bit of an audio skip about midway through, so don't freak out when it goes silent for a few seconds.
All in all, you have to really like how things are going, during this time when 3-4 AHL callups have been required on a nightly basis. It bodes well for the team's ability to keep up the pace once guys like Jason Arnott, Jordin Tootoo and Jerred Smithson return to action.
Last month, when I sat in on the NHL Fanhouse weekly podcast, I told Bruce Ciskie that I thought the Preds were a 5-7 seed in the West, and that's pretty much the course they're on right now. But what do you think?
