How To Beat The Goalie
The projected starting goalie is Tuukka Rask. He is known for being one of the best back-up goalies in the NHL. Well, I am going to tell you, how the Nashville Predators are going to try to beat him. 

Tuukka Rask is a very wild goaltender. When I mean wild, he over-commits, is aggressive, and goes to his last resort a little too early. So, to beat a goalie like Rask, the Predators will try to make a small move to get Rask to commit. Then, pass back door to a guaranteed wide-open net.
