Out of the frying pan, into the fire

The last time the Nashville Predators played in Calgary, it was one of the wildest games in recent memory; after falling behind 5-0, the Preds clawed their way back to pull within a goal at 7-6 in the final moments, and had possession in the offensive zone as the final horn sounded.  That determination to keep fighting despite early troubles is still a hallmark of this team, as evidenced by recent comeback victories over Pittsburgh and Vancouver, each of which saw Nashville overcome a 3-1 deficit to score 4 unanswered goals and win 5-3.

While it would be nice to see the boys make things easier on themselves by taking an early lead and locking things down, that will be a tough task tonight as the Flames are one of best teams in the league over the last several weeks (29 points in last 19 games).

According to John Glennon at the Tennessean, either Ville Koistinen or Greg de Vries will replace Alexander Sulzer tonight, as Sulzer’s shoulder will keep him out for weeks.  There’s been no word yet on another potential call-up from Milwaukee.
