Game Preview: Avs Come to Nashville

Peter Forsberg and the Colorado Avalanche make a trip to Nashville on Saturday night to take on newly acquired Mike Fisher and the Nashville Predators. The Avalanche have been losers of six straight games, while the Preds have only managed to win two out of their last seven games.

My player to watch for the Avalanche is Peter Forsberg. This will be his second NHL game this season, and it will be the first game he's played in Nashville since the Preds were eliminated by San Jose in the 2007 playoffs. It'll be interesting to see how he looks.

For Nashville, obviously my player to watch is Mike Fisher. It will be his first game as a Predator and it'll be interesting to see how he handles the nerves of playing for his new team for the first time in front of the home crowd.

It's going to be a fun night in Nashville! See you all there!
