Wednesday's Dump & Chase: Happy New Year!

Alan Crowhurst

We can't really have a great season, since it's halfway finished, but we can have a great 2014, right? We're on a (seemingly massive) 2 game winning streak, scoring lots of goals in the process. So that's nice. There's some pretty tough games ahead, starting with a trip to Boston tomorrow night. Can the Preds carry over the strong finish to 2013 into the new year?
