3. Nashville Predators

Previous: No. 4

This team is right up there with the Blues and Kings as best team in the Western Conference, and you could make a good argument for any of the three. The Preds giving St. Louis a run for its money as the leader of the Central Division, and they’re getting pretty balanced scoring. Some of their top players are out with injury, but if they can get back to full strength, watch out.
