When last year's best puck-possession team faces one of the worst, even those of you who don't know your Corsi from your Fenwick can guess the likely result.
It's no surprise to see today's game go to a shootout, as three of the six meetings between these two teams last season ended up doing so.
It's an early start for the Predators and Blues as they face off at 5:00 p.m.
Our SB Nation comrades in St. Louis have their game preview for today's game posted, and it looks like Jaroslav Halak will get the start, after he pitched a 6-0 shutout against Detroit on Saturday (thanks to folks on Twitter correcting me on the initial post).
Born: May 13, 1985
Halak boasts a 7-3-3 career record against Nashville, with a .934 save percentage, 1.71 GAA, and 3 shutouts.
So pop on over and acquaint yourselves with the enemy du jour, but watch out - they're a potty-mouthed bunch. You've been warned.
The Blues came on strong last year to take their first Central Division title since 2000. Can the Predators slow down Ken Hitchcock's juggernaut?
