Words simply cannot describe the difference in where the Predators' fortunes were headed before and after their shocking three goal outburst at the end of their game with the Blue Jackets in Columbus on Thursday night.
The team appeared to be continuing on the down hill slide that they had been riding for the last couple of weeks where they were getting no breaks in spite of playing decent hockey at times.
Then in a span of 3:21, all that changed and the Predators came away with a win that they can build upon as they play 12 of their next 16 games at home.
The team has the fewest wins of any NHL team on home ice which makes little sense because they have dominated there over the years.
Their next opportunity to be point collectors at home comes quickly with the Anaheim Ducks coming to town for a continuation of the teams' bitter rivalry on Saturday night. The team should be playing with a little confidence after last night's miracle finish.
