After a nice little win over the Detroit Red Wings, a team who is having a rough year from top to bottom, the Flyers will look to continue the Good Stuff tonight against the Nashville Predators, a team who has been having a great... well... like, five years from top to bottom. They’re a really good team, is what I’m saying. Kate R. from On The Forecheck was nice enough to join us to talk a little bit about how the Preds are faring so far this season. We touched on:

  • Peter Laviolette, and what gives a coach a long shelf life in this league
  • The Predators being downright attacked by the injury bug so far this season, and who has stepped up
  • How cool it is to have an elite defensive corps
  • The future of Pekke Rinne
  • How David Poile might push his team over the hump, finally

Tonight’s game is at 7PM on NBC Sports Philly, and if you’re at the game be sure to stop by the Ed Snider Youth Hockey Foundation table and say hi!
