Predators offensive woes cured by visit from NHL-worst Buffalo Sabres

With only nine games remaining, the Nashville Predators are living on a prayer.

Nashville’s futility in shootouts may cost them playoff spot

You know how, when playing 20-spot Keno, you actually win something if none of your numbers come up? That’s what should happen with the Nashville Predators and the shootout. They should at least get something. Not only have they failed to win a single game via the shootout this season, the Predators have scored just once in 19 attempts. “That’s not good enough,” Head Coach...
