While Boston has slid from its Presidents' Trophy-winning form from last season, the Nashville Predators have continued their surprising and impressive turnaround.

Predators 5 – Blue Jackets 1

Optimistic Thoughts: James Neal was inserted back in the lineup after missing the last game with an illness, but interestingly didn’t return to his normal position on the first line. That was taken by Craig Smith who played spectacular in Neal’s absence and continued his strong play with another two goals tonight against the Blue Jackets. Victor Bartley has grown exponentially...

Tuesday night in Nashville was a rare visit from the Boston Bruins. A physical match that saw both clubs...
