The Nashville Predators are on a stellar run, winning 13 of their last 16 games, most recently dominating the Stanley Cup champion Tampa Bay Lightning 7-2 at Bridgestone Arena on Tuesday.
It was an absolute beatdown, with the Predators putting up seven goals in a game for the third time this season and the second time in four games.
With that win, the Preds remain in 4th place in the Central Division, now with seven points over the Dallas Stars and four points over the Chicago Blackhawks.
Of course, it’s impossible to watch this Preds team and not notice the contributions of so many younger players on the ice. Rem Pitlick, playing in only his 9th game, picked up his first two NHL assists. Tanner Jeannot, playing in only his 3rd game, just scored his first NHL goal. Jeremy Davies just played in his 14th game on the blueline, while Yakov Trenin continues to impress on the 4th line, picking up another assist.
