Monday’s Dump and Chase: Back to Our Roots

New, comments

Sunday’s shootout loss ensures Nashville keeps a five point lead on Winnipeg. It’s time for the boys to come home and reset after a tough weekend on the road.

The Predators haven’t looked like themselves recently. From a lopsided loss to Toronto to a flop in Minnesota, the Predators needed a good game against Winnipeg. However, the Jets had other plans and took two points in a shootout win.

The Preds have three home games this week against Central Division foes. They have to get their mojo back before they find themselves behind the curve in the playoff race. Nashville still holds a five point lead on Winnipeg in the Central. This week will be a tough one.
