90 Points and Reality
Nashville sits in the 12th spot in the Western Conference with 53 points. If you think, as I do, that it will take 90 points to secure a playoff spot, the Preds MUST go 18-9-1 over their last 28 games. The margin for playoff elimination is becoming razor thin, and the team does not have the luxury of taking off a period during a game or playing uninspired hockey. It's obvious this team is not as skilled offensively as ones in the recent past. So be it. Heart and the will to lay it all out on the ice can carry this team. Show me what you got, boys.
