Yes, the Preds are done putzing around in the middle of the Western Conference standings. A three-game winning streak and just one regulation loss in their last 10 games has them atop the Central Division. It’s hard to understand how Pekka Rinne is keeping his stats so strong this season, but I’m sure he doesn’t mind having guys like P.K. Subban and Roman Josi in front of him.
