Edmonton has alternated wins and losses to open the month with a 3-2-0 record but the wins have been encouraging. The Nashville Predators are averaging 3.2 goals per game and are scoring on 26.4 percent of their power play opportunities.
The Predators had their second 2-on-0 of the game moments later, but Scott Hartnell, who returned to the lineup after missing 13 games with a lower-body injury, shot just wide. "Still, everyone, including myself, need to play better". Meanwhile, the Predators have been slightly better than average on the road and are still among the most profitable teams in the Western Conference this season. That includes a pummeling of the Vancouver Canucks last night.
"They lost their first two games (Boston and Pittsburgh) and I think they've only given up points in five games after that this season", said McLellan, as his club prepared to play the Stanley Cup finalist on Thursday at Rogers Place. "They want to show that previous year was no fluke".
There have been times this season when P.K. Subban felt he deserved a goal that didn't materialize.

Edmonton continues to be a streaky team and while people are waiting for them to make the turn, they might not. During the streak, the Preds have outscored the Oilers 27-12 and limited them to two-or-fewer goals eight times, including three shutouts.
Inconsistency has been a major issue for an Oilers team that has lacked balance.
The Canucks, who have allowed five or more goals in seven games this season, limped into Wednesday minus two-thirds of their top line with Bo Horvat (fractured ankle) and Sven Baertschi (broken jaw) out, while Brandon Sutter and Erik Gudbranson remain sidelined with upper-body injuries. However, no other player on the squad has more than 22 points.
Meanwhile, an injury to No. 1 goalie Cam Talbot has forced Laurent Broissoit into the starting role.

In addition to Comcast, Verizon Communications Inc. and Sony Corp. have also explored the idea of acquiring the holdings. Fox, now home to the Avatar and X-Men film franchises, would be left with its broadcast network and Fox News Channel.
But, they'll likely give their starter Pekka Rinne, who has an 18-6-1 record lifetime against the Oilers, the night off. Saros has never played against Edmonton. The good news is that the Oilers offense has come to life.
The Oilers, who have won six of their last 10 games, will go with the same lineup that clobbered Columbus 7-2 Tuesday, which means Drake Caggiula and Nathan Walker out at forward and Eric Gryba on defence. The team is 4-1 in those games.
In terms of Thursday's opponent, the Oilers get to host this matchup, which is important.
Nashville is 18-11 straight up (SU) and has earned moneyline bettors 5.8 units this season.
