Thursday's Dump & Chase: Bring On Part 2

New, comments

It's time for the 15 portion of the 2014-15 season. Part 1 went pretty well, with the Preds sitting at 24-9-3, good for a very solid 2nd in the Central, and only 3 points off the conference lead with 3 games in hand over the Ducks. So basically better than even the most optimistic among us could've expected. This month will present a few challenges (with 3 back-to-backs), but February features 10 home games...and the Preds are 14-2-1 inside the Bridge. Expect that 99.6% chance to make the playoffs to move to 100% soon.
