Prior Meetings...

October 13, 2011 - Coyotes 5, Predators 2 (Bridgestone Arena) - After starting the season 2-0 on the road, the Preds came home and looked flat in a game where little went their way. Paul Bissonnnette would not answer the call from Brian McGrattan in his first game as a Predator. Jason Labarbara got the win in goal.

November 3, 2011 - Predators 3, Coyotes 0 (Jobing.com  Arena) - Pekka Rinne signed a $49 million contract in the morning and then threw a 35 save shutout that night. That about says it all.

December 6, 2011- Coyotes 3, Predators 2 (Bridgestone Arena) - The Predators gave up goals early (9 seconds in) and late (1:45 left) in a game that the Preds never led and the loss left the team and coach frustrated. The team's record was 12-11-4 at the end of the game. From that point forward, they went 36-15-4.

March 12, 2012 - Predators 5, Coyotes 4, (SO) (Jobing.com  Arena) - Andrei Kostitsyn scored the only goal in the shootout to give the even the season series with the Yotes. In what was billed as a battle of top goalies, both Rinne and Mike Smith gave up four goals on 35 shots.
