No. 12: Nashville Predators

Previous: No. 11

Record:  24-17-8 (56 points)

Can Nashville catch Chicago in the standings? Well a lot of winning will need to go on for the former group and a lot of losing for the latter. But after a really bumpy few months, it looks like the Preds have found their footing. Getting star defenseman P.K. Subban back never hurts matters.
