When it comes to the power play, the Predators don’t exactly reinvent the wheel. When there’s an issue, they simply sit down and talk about it.

“We have meetings, a lot of meetings and talk about it — just like anything to do with our systems,” captain Shea Weber said. “We talk about what we should do better and what we might need to do to get more opportunities.”

That really doesn’t explain the extreme peaks and valleys the power play has experienced this season. But right now the Predators are riding a hot streak, which is a good thing as they try to climb up the standings after a five-game losing streak.

In the past four games, the power play has been clicking at a better rate (4-for-12, 33 percent). In the previous eight games, the man-advantage unit scored just once.
