The Scouting Report
From 2009–12, the Predators didn't miss the playoffs. In fact, in 2011–12, they posted the second-best season in franchise history by amassing 104 points. This October, the Preds begin their migration back to the postseason behind one of the league's most vaunted defenses. The Nashville D lets almost nothing pass—that's especially true of the team's goalie, who leads all net minders with 30 shutouts over the past five seasons.
On October 7, 2000, the Predators opened the season with a two-game series against the Pittsburgh Penguins just outside Tokyo, Japan. The series drew the largest crowds ever to witness hockey in the nation's history.
But just two years prior, Nashville was the new kid on the NHL block. One of the final pieces of a massive expansion effort during the 1990s, the Predators became the 27th franchise in NHL history when they skated to a 1–0 loss to the Carolina Hurricanes on October 10, 1998. Like many new organizations and racehorses with four left hooves, Nashville stumbled out of the gate, missing the playoffs in each of its first five seasons. That futility came to a sudden halt in 2003-04, when the Predators made their first of four straight postseason appearances, and then backed that stretch up with three straight playoff berths from 2009–12.
