Ducks Gameday: Unlucky Predators

USA TODAY Sports

Nashville has had a string of bad luck in the past few days, will it continue today? Ducks @ Predators

Oh hey, the gameday preview widget still isn't working around here, so pretend this is it:

A lot of horrible things happen to the Predators on a fairly regular occurrence (such as having to live in Nashville), but in the past few days the team ran in to a string of bad luck and two pretty crummy things happened to them.

First:

Second:

The first one is kind of funny, considering Poile appears to be okay. The second one, while Pete Weber also seems to be recovering okay, is probably not funny or something to joke about. And given how touchy Predators fans are, if I tried to make light of it I'd probably cause some of them to have heart attacks too.

Get well soon, Poile and Weber.

No idea what brought on this curse over Nashville Predators (has Hertl been around Tennessee lately?), but I sure hope it continues tonight. Ducks have been in slump, losing to some mediocre teams along the way, and it sure would be nice to come out of a tailspin right before the Olympic break.

I'm not saying I want anyone else from the Preds to have a heart attack or anything, but maybe one of Dunn's Super STDs will find its way over there. One can only hope.

Gameday Prediction

The Ducks never win again.

Classic Moment

To help commemorate the Ducks' 20th year this season, each gameday I'll be posting a clip of a classic moment from the team's history against that night's opponent. Here is today's...

The Predators eliminated us from the playoffs once. Bummer.
