What They're Saying
Nashville makes Music City rock with an impressive home opening effort.
Take a deep breath, Trotz and Co. Starting Wednesday, the Predators play 7 games in 11 days, including NHL powers Chicago, Washington, and Pittsburgh.
The Predators get off the mark with a solid 4-1 win over lowly Anaheim. An injury to starting netminder Pekka Rinne is a troubling development, although he's not expected to miss much, if any, playing time.
Veteran Steve Sullivan helped the Predators win their fifth opener in seven tries by collecting two points including the game winner in Nashville's 4-2 victory over the Ducks on Saturday night.
The Preds were snubbed in our preseason poll, selected in 9th, outside the playoff picture. In Week 1, they're right back in the mix, jumping nine spots to No. 3. How long will that last, however,with injuries to Pekka Rinne and Martin Erat, among others?
