Last night's Predators' game with Columbus ended the season series with the Blue Jackets with Nashville picking up 11 of a possible 12 points against their divisional rivals with the only blemish being an overtime loss where the 17 game home winning streak against the Jackets was snapped.

The Predators played well in the first and last period against Columbus with a loss of intensity in the middle period that was revived with 29 seconds left with Mike Fisher's second goal on the power play.

Matt Halischuk and Ryan Suter played well in their returns and Suter appeared to be at 100%. Pekka Rinne was outstanding as usual as he has now gone 17-2 in his last 19 starts.

The Predators just completed a critical stretch with 14 home games since December 10 and re-established home ice dominance with a 12-2 run after going 4-5-3 at home to star the season.

Nashville remains in the thick of the Central Division race but are still five points behind Detroit, who like the Preds, are 8-2-0 in their last ten games. As of this morning, four of the top seven records in the league are held by Central Division teams.

The Preds will have a chance to pull ahead of the Blackhawks with a win in Chicago tonight.
