Preds answerless as Stars punch ticket | On The Forecheck
Last night's game was tough - despite keeping it close for the first half of the game, the young roster couldn't keep up with the finely tuned machine of the Dallas Stars. Here's Kate's recap from last night's action.
Tonight is Pride Night | Nashville Predators
Well, we all knew it was coming, and now the microscope turns on Bridgestone to see how the Predators will celebrate the event that has been on the calendar all year. Interesting that the link doesn't mention the jerseys being worn in pregame - just that you can win player-signed jerseys in auction.

Former Pred and fan favorite Tanner Jeannot hasn't made much of an impact for the Lightning since the lopsided deal that came with five draft picks and Cal Foote.

Around the NHL
Wild lose to Golden Knights in shootout but clinch playoff berth | NHL.com
Today's opponent is a hot red Vegas team that is trying to clinch the Western Conference number one seed. They took Minnesota all the way to the shootout - which might help Nashville in that the Predators weren't close to sniffing anything resembling overtime.
Kraken score 8 against Coyotes, gain in Western wild card race | NHL.com
Technically, Nashville isn't out of the race for the first Wild Card spot in the West, but Seattle has a game in hand on Nashville, and if Nashville loses in regulation and Seattle wins, then Nashville can only lock up the 8th seed. Seattle just demolished the Yotes, so I don't think Preds fans should hold their breath for the Kraken to screw up.
