Predators scoreboard watch: On, Columbus!

There are two games on tonight's NHL schedule which impact the Western Conference playoff scenario, and one features the two biggest rivals of the Nashville Predators:

Detroit @ Columbus: The Red Wings are tied with Nashville at 98 points, but have an extra game to play. Can the Blue Jackets rise up and play spoiler against Detroit? With a 3-4-3 record in their last 10 games, I'm not very hopeful that Columbus can come through.

Chicago @ Colorado: The Blackhawks have a chance to catch San Jose for the top seed in the West, something I don't think most Preds fans want to see. If Chicago went #1, San Jose would drop to #2, setting up a possible 1st-round date with the Predators. So goooooooo Avs!

Feel free to follow the action and sound off in the comments below, and for more on these games, check out Pete Weber's segment on the Thom Abraham Show this afternoon:
