Friday's Dump & Chase: Preds Stayin' Alive

New, comments

Well, it looks like Minnesota is going to be tough to catch, but that 8th spot is still, shockingly, very much up for grabs. Vancouver has decided to lose All The Games, which is great, but the rest of the teams ahead of the Preds are playing at a pretty consistent pace. That means no more stupid losses or wasted opportunities. None.
