Nashville vs Winnipeg: Staggering Predators Host Limping Jets

Nashville vs Winnipeg: Staggering Predators Host Limping Jets
Playoff style National Hockey League action is on tap in Music City as Nashville hosts Winnipeg tonight. The Predators have watched their Western Conference lead shrink as though it’s been in the pool while Winnipeg is dealing with some serious injury issues. Puck drop for this NHL Central Division duel is slated for 7:00 PM ET on March 7, 2015, from the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, TN.

Nashville Predators: Feeling the jitters of being the prey

Facts are facts and only a die-hard Nashville fan, wearing rose-colored glasses, could have envisioned the season the Predators have pulled together. Perhaps feeling the heat of a stoked playoff race, the Preds have dropped five straight games for the first time this season. Prior to their skid, Nashville owned a four point lead over Anaheim in the West – the Ducks now own the top perch with a two point lead. As if the losing skid wasn’t enough, star forward Mike Ribeiro is facing legal issues (assault) though he will continue to play while the legal process moves forward.

Winnipeg Jets: Latest battle with turbulence has some top talent sidelined in the ‘Peg

Hits just keep coming in Winnipeg, as the Jets will be down a few good men tonight. Second leading scorer Brian Little, top defenseman Dustin Byfuglien and fifth leading scorer Mathieu Perrault will all miss this contest. This comes just after 46-point man Blake Wheeler returned to the Jets lineup last Sunday. The Jets are 2-2-2 over their last six games and they are two points up on the defending Cup Champion Los Angeles Kings for the final playoff position in the West. The Sharks are also circling, as San Jose is four points back and appear to be rounding into form.
