On A Tear

Nashville Predators captain Shea Weber has been on fire as of late. He's got a 9 game scoring streak going right now, which is the longest of his career so far. In that time, he's tallied 13 points(3g, 10a).

He was selected as Nashville's lone representative for the NHL All-Star Game in Raliegh, North Carolina. Currently, he's playing the best all-around hockey in the league as far as defensemen go. In fact, I don't know if he's played better hockey in his career.

He started out the season slow, and I wondered if the pressure of the Captaincy was weighing him down. Regardless of if it was or wasn't, he's definitely gotten over that.

Weber and Suter are the key to how this team does. When they're both on, the Preds are an extremely difficult team to beat(barring a physical, mental, emotional breakdown like on Sunday night in Chicago). If Weber keeps up this All-World play, the Preds are going to put themselves in a very comfortable position.
