NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The confident Predators are back at work feeling they've proven Nashville isn't a one and done franchise anymore.
.After winning their first-ever playoff series last season, defenseman Ryan Suter says the Predators should be happy, just not satisfied. He says hopefully this season they will take yet another step forward.
The Predators opened training camp Friday with hopes of building on that success and advancing even further. They had physicals and testing Friday and take the ice for their first official on-ice practice Saturday.
They have qualified for the playoffs six out of their last seven season and finally broke through to the Western Conference semifinals this spring by ousting the Anaheim Ducks before falling to the eventual Western champs, Vancouver, in six games.
