NEWS

Covers Preview - The Nashville Predators are riding high with a three-game winning streak, but coach Peter Laviolette can see areas that need attention. The Predators look to address those points when the reeling Columbus Blue Jackets pay a visit to Music City on Saturday. "There's definitely room for improvement with regard to our start (in Thursday's 1-0 overtime victory over Edmonton) and making sure we respect any opponent that we play," Laviolette said. "Anybody's capable of beating anybody."
