The Preds won last night, and have 11 points in their last 10 games…but are STILL in the same spot they've been in for the last month or so. Eight points out. With so many teams ahead of them, the Preds are going to need some help AND keep playing well to move up. They get another shot at 2 points tonight in Calgary…why don't you join us in the game thread later? It's too cold to go outside, so you might as well stay in for a virtual cuddle with your closest internet friends.
