Preview and GDT: Winnipeg Jets vs. Nashville Predators

If there was ever a time to look in the rear-view mirror, it would be now.

The Winnipeg Jets and Nashville Predators are playing again and this game has real playoff implications to it. The Predators are four points behind the Jets for the final Wild Card spot with three games in hand. This is a typical four point game late in the season and one that should be easy for both teams to get up for.

The Predators are not the most consistent team in the world. While they have been winning some games since trading away key players at the deadline, they are still inconsistent which should make this game fun because the Jets are also inconsistent. If anything this game should be between two teams who really need the win and also really need to get back on the winning track if they are going to make the playoffs (Nashville) or are going to hold off teams trying to make the playoffs (Winnipeg).
