NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -The Nashville Predators are living very much in the present as they prepare for their fifth playoff series in six seasons.
Considering their woeful road record in the postseason, smart move.
The Predators' biggest challenge to winning the first playoff series in their young history is an inability to win away from home when it matters most. They are 0-10 combined on the road through their first four playoff series, including the season stars such as Peter Forsberg and Paul Kariya were on the roster.
Forward J.P. Dumont says what happened in the past is in the past, these Predators are a new team. Or as teammate Jordin Tootoo summed up: "Stats are for losers."
Nashville opens the playoffs Friday night at Chicago.
