Analysis

This may not be the Bridgestone Winter Classic -- that New Year's game is between the Bruins and Blackhawks at Notre Dame Stadium -- but tonight's contest is taking place at the Bridgestone Arena.  That means home ice for one of the best teams in the league, and that's been a pretty tough combination this season.  The Predators are 14-7 here although they didn't need that home ice advantage yesterday to take down the defending Stanley Cup Champs as the Preds got out of DC with a somewhat easy 6-3 beat-down of a very good Caps team.  They're hoping that victory will give them a jump start as they had lost their previous six by a combined score of 19-8.  It's also a revenge situation for Nashville, as less than two weeks ago it lost in Philly by a 2-1 margin.  They take on a Philadelphia team that is 1-7 in its last eight road games after Monday night's loss to the Hurricanes in Raleigh.  The Preds are 7-3 in their last 10 (59-37 in their last 96) when revenging a loss as a favorite.  Take Nashville.  As always, good luck...Al McMordie.
