Who knew that the Country Music Awards necessitated the Predators go on a six game road trip? I know that awards shows are over-long, but two weeks seems like a bit much.
The Predators will be finishing the trip tonight in St. Louis. So far on this particular stretch of road, they're 3-2-0, and a win tonight would place them in first place in the Central. The Blues, on the other hand, have won seven games in a row and would love some distance between themselves and the guys in the yellow jerseys. You can't take away the season that Nashville's had so far - they've been one of the league's most pleasant surprises.
That's all well and good, but there's a game to be played tonight, and I'm sure that as happy as we all are for the Predators' resurgence we'd really prefer the Blues to win by a handy margin. I know I would. Breathing room is always nice regardless of what time of the season it is.
