Wednesday's Dump & Chase: Power Play Unchanged

The Preds are 7-3-0 in their last ten but haven't scored a power play goal in 8 games. Not much has changed in the last 27 games with their 27th ranked power play. If the good times are going to continue to roll, they need to really address their below average special teams, specifically the power play.
