Here's the state of the Central Division — no one's losing. The Predators, despite their overall success to date, have created zero breathing room for themselves. When the Predators began their game against the Florida Panthers on Saturday, they were five points off the NHL lead, but also seven points from sixth place in their seven-team division. What this means is that Nashville can't stray from its current pace. The Predators' 4-3 win was their fifth in a row.
