It didn't take long for a postseason rematch to arrive.
For the first time since their Round Two meeting during last spring's Stanley Cup Playoffs, the Nashville Predators and Winnipeg Jets will get together tonight at Bridgestone Arena. It's the first of four meetings between the two Central Division rivals; Winnipeg defeated Nashville in seven games last May.
The Preds will try to bounce back tonight after a 3-0 defeat at the hands of the Calgary Flames during Tuesday's home opener in Nashville, their first loss of the young season. Combine the frustration of that defeat with the first rematch against the Jets and there is bound to be a better start this evening.

"The games against them are always tough, they're physical and they're fast," Predators Captain Roman Josi said of facing the Jets. "You saw it last year, and not just in the playoffs, in the regular season, too. They're always good games, fast-paced games, so it's always a lot of fun playing them."
