The NHL leading Nashville Predators have broken yet another franchise record. They have reached 100 points in only 69 games and are tied with the Tampa Bay Lightning for the best record in the league. They also, for the first time, scored two short handed goals in the same power play in franchise history in their 3-1 victory over the Jets Tuesday night.
Pekka Rinne continues to play lights out, and is leading the Vezina Trophy race. It's not just Pred's fans that are saying this now. Other writers, bloggers, podcasters, and talking heads are coming out with the numbers, and Pekka is just outdoing everyone. At 35 years old, he is having the best season of his career and is one of the many reasons this Predators team is having it's best season in franchise history.
The depth of this team will be important, as Calle Jarnkrok is injured. He is having the best season of his career as well, with 35 points, 16 goals and 19 assists.
Austin Watson is just a monster. Another guy having a career year, and is money on the penalty kill. He has 4 shorthanded goals, which is only one behind Aleksander Barkov, a very good player with the Florida Panthers with 69 points on the season.
Your Nashville Predators have a commanding lead in the Central Division, up eight points on Winnipeg, a 5 point lead in the Western Conference over the Vegas Golden Knights, and are currently in position to secure the President's trophy for the best record in the league.
Do the Predators want to go for the President's trophy? We may have differing opinions on the show.
