Found November 20, 2011 on PredsOnTheGlass:
No one expected that the Predators 17 game winning streak on home ice against the Columbus Blue Jackets would go on forever and it didn't with Columbus pulling out a 4-3 win in overtime last night at Bridgestone Arena.

Last season, on three occasions, I went to the rink on game day against the Jackets just knowing that karma would catch up with the Predators and she laid low for the whole season.

Yesterday, after looking at all the stats and comparisons of the two squads, I wrote that the game was the biggest mismatch in the series history, but concluded with  "I expect a typical Predators-Blue Jackets game that will be nip and tuck and a good possibility for overtime where anything can happen. There will be fights and bad blood as Columbus will try to incite Jordan Tootoo and probably cause Brian McGratten to bloody up his knuckles again."

I should have been in Las Vegas instead of on a campus visit with Jackson with that type of prognosticating ability. So anyway, the streak is over and the Preds got a point and still have the third highest point total in the Western Conference.

After a day off, the Preds will prepare to end the homestand on Tuesday with Edmonton and then head out  to Minnesota, Detroit and for the final road tripWestern Canada of the season.
