After the Ducks ended their seven-game win streak on Saturday night, the Coyotes are in Nashville tonight to try and start a new winning streak.  The game is just a few short minutes away.

The Predators got off to a hot start to begin the season, but they are suddenly on a four-game losing streak with being outscored 11-4 over that stretch.  With the Coyotes beating them earlier this month in Phoenix, you would have to expect the Preds to come out fired up in this one.  In order to get another victory on the road, the Yotes are going to have to deal with the Predators early charge.

Nashville has really struggled getting the puck into the net, but they still have a few guys that you have to keep an eye on.  Cal O’Reilly is the team leader in points with Steve Sullivan and Patric Hornqvist right behind O’Reilly.  Both are tied with 11 points each.  Expect the Coyotes to be centered on stopping those guys in order to try and continue their win streak on the road.

One of the biggest bright spots for Nashville so far this season has been their goaltending.  Even though he has a losing record, Pekka Rinne has a very good GAA of 2.5 and has saved 91 percent of his shots.  Phoenix will have their work cut out for them trying to get the puck past the 28-year-old.
