The Nashville Predators take on the St. Louis Blues on Thursday Night in St. Louis. The Blues were the first team that the Predators lost to in regulation this year and they haven't won a game since.
Ryan Suter and Martin Erat returned to practice Tuesday according to ontheforecheck.com
On Thursday, the Blues will be coming off a game against Columbus on Wednesday night. The Predators have to take advantage of the Blues early.
The Blues currently sit at 9-1-2 with their lone loss in regulation coming against the Predators in Nashville's third game of the year. The Blues have won seven games in a row coming into tonight's game against Columbus.
Nashville currently sits dead last in the Central division and 13th in the Western Conference.
The Predators have 10 games remaining in November. 6 are on the road, while 4 are at home.
Steve Stamkos, of the Tampa Bay Lightning, has 13 goals so far this season. The kid has some serious game.
I know it's early in the season(Well, kinda early. We're 13 games in) but this game against St. Louis is a must win for the Preds. Nashville has lost 5 games in a row and really needs a win. If St. Louis beats Columbus tonight, they'll have 22 points to the Predators 13, which means the Blues would have 24 if they beat the Preds. It's not an insurmountable deficit but it's definitely not a preferrable obstacle to overcome. The Preds simply have to have this game.
