— Nashville Predators (@PredsNHL) March 2, 2022
Barely a week after several special nights for the Predators, the team will be back in action to continue their campaign. Although they lost to the defending champs before a sellout crowd at the Nissan Stadium on Saturday, the Predators are upbeat in their return to the rink to face the Kraken in Seattle. It will be a short for Nashville as the team is set to visit the San Jose Sharks on Saturday. The team may be favored on the road against the Kraken, but Nashville will surely not take the Kraken lightly in this game.
Players to watch: R. Josi D (G 14, A 39, PTS 53), M. Duchene C (G 23, A 23, PTS 46), F. Forsberg LW (G 27, A 18, PTS 45).
At the start of February, NHL fans thought the Kraken were about to unleash their true potential, anticipating more wins in the second half of the season. Fast forward to March, Seattle seemed to have to reach the expectation. The team will try to redeem themselves and snap the skid on Wednesday for their first game of the month. It will be tough, but it is possible for the Kraken to get out of the slumber. They have the home ice advantage; the squad just needs to utilize the advantage and keep staying the course.
Players to watch: J. McCann C (G 21, A 12, PTS 33), J. Eberle RW (G 15, A 16, PTS 31), Y. Gourde C (G 11, A 18, PTS 29).
