Saturday's Dump and Chase: Déjà Vu? Yes.

On Saturday, November 8th, the Nashville Predators, just off a smackdown of the Division rival Stars came up against the hottest team in hockey, the St. Louis Blues, winners of six straight. The Preds left that night with a statement 2-1 victory which left them alone atop the Central and announced their emergence as a real Western Conference threat. Tonight the hottest team in hockey comes into Smashville. They have won five straight, they are rolling, they are dangerous, and we will destroy them. Just off a decisive Division win against the Blues, this is no longer a coming out game, this is a statement of a different type; We are Contenders, and we will not be Chicago's little brother anymore. SO PUT ON SOME GOLD AND COME DOWN TO SUPPORT YOUR TEAM, THIS IS OUR TIME!!!
