The Preds went 2-1-1 over their 4 game home stand and got 5 out of a possible 8 points. After a 5 game losing streak the 5 points were desperately needed. Preds currently hold the 8th and final playoff spot in the western conference if the season ended today. Now Preds are off on a 4 game road trip thru the northeast against eastern conference. Preds really need 4 points at worst on the trip, with 5 or 6 points being a solid performance before the Olympic break.
Here recently the team is winning when the big names produce and struggling when they don't. Sullivan and Arnott had big games in the win over Colorado. They have to produce. They both had opportunities to win the shootout and game against Phoenix but couldn't get it done in the 1-0 overtime loss.
Hopefully the Preds are not feeling the pressure, but you can sense it growing with each game. Let's hope there is a strong finish before the Olympic break this week.
