Wednesday's Dump & Chase: Don't Panic

It's only pre-season.

The beloved local hockey team started their pre-season by taking on the Florida Panthers in a double header yesterday afternoon. After dropping the first contest to the Panthers 4-1, the Predators redeemed themselves winning the second 2-1 with goals from Miikka Salomaki and Potus Aberg.

Keep in mind it's still pre-season, there are still roster cuts to be made, and players who more than likely won't make their debut until the season starts. For now, let's just enjoy hockey, you can ready the pitchforks on October 14th.
