The Predators' penalty kill has been a weak spot as of late (fortunately they didn't have to go to work at all last night against Edmonton), so hopefully they can find some success against a Minnesota power play which is having its own troubles.

So far this season the Preds are 1-0-1 against Minnesota. On January 22nd Chris Mason backstopped Nashville to a 3-1 win, while on February 9th the Predators were caught be the controversial "hand pass" rule on an overtime faceoff by Paul Gaustad, and lost 2-1.
