Through desert, ocean, and now mountains, nothing seems to stop the Predators on their roadtrip across North America. Nashville stuck with its formula of grabbing a lead, almost blowing it, and then figuring out a way to at least get a point in a 6-4 win over the Colorado Avalanche. Until last season, the Predators were known as a team that knew how to grind out points, no matter how adverse the situation or long the roadtrip. They seem to have regained that ability this season, and especially on this roadtrip. “I said, we wanted to fix our culture. I thought it slipped. We tried to fix the culture better that way, and that’s what you get — guys digging in,” coach Barry Trotz said. “They pay the price, they block shots and do what needs to be done. The Predators (8-5-2) moved to 2-0-1 on this 17-day trip with another strong offensive performance. Nashville has scored at least four goals in every game of this trip. Forward Colin Wilson led the Predators with four points in the game, including the game-winner. Forward Viktor Stalberg also scored his first goal as a Predator in his ninth game with the team. As Nashville did in Phoenix on the first game of the trip, and Los Angeles on the second game, the Predators picked up a lead, lost it and watch the opposition come back to tie the game in the third period. Nashville lost to the Coyotes in a shootout and beat the Kings late. The Predators used the latter formula against Colorado, who made the game 4-4 just 4:23 into the third period after Nashville held a 4-2 lead. That was before Stalberg found Wilson 7:34 into the period off the wall, and sprung Wilson on a mini-breakaway on Avalanche netminder Semyon Varlamov to give the Predators a 5-4 lead.
