Nashville is going great, although in recent years the club was headed in the wrong direction. Fortunately, things turned out differently, so the Predators are among the playoff contenders. They went through a rough eight-game patch recently, suffering six losses, but then they managed to get out. In the last three games, John Heinz's wards took turns beating San Jose 8:0, Dallas 2:1, and Anaheim 4:1. All that allows the team to sit in sixth place in the Western Conference standings.
St. Louis is performing decently. Craig Berube's team is not always perfect in the cup battles, they are not always perfect. However, all of a sudden, the Bluesmen had a noticeable decline when they lost four games, not to the most powerful opponents. The day before, Missouri snapped their unsuccessful streak by defeating the Rangers, 6:2. This victory allowed St. Louis to occupy third place in the Western Conference standings.
