The bad news for the Nashville Predators: They have lost 10 straight games on the road Minnesota Wild Hoodies Womens , eight of them in regulation.The good news: Their first two games after the Christmas break are at Bridgestone Arena, including Thursday night’s visit from the Dallas Stars.The better news: Some desperately needed help might be on the way sooner instead of later.Article continues below ...It appears that All-Star defenseman P.K. Subban and right winger Viktor Arvidsson could be back after extended absences. Subban has missed the last 19 games with an upper-body injury and Arvidsson has been sidelined since a slash broke his thumb Nov. 10 in a 5-4 overtime win at Dallas.“We’re not in the position to rest guys,” Nashville coach Peter Laviolette said to the Tennessean last week when asked if the team would wait to bring injured players back until after Christmas. “Guys will play when they are ready. We can’t afford the luxury of resting guys.”With their depth stretched beyond its considerable max by a series of injuries that have also claimed Filip Forsberg and Colton Sissons, the Predators are 9-10-2 over their last 21 games. They went 0-3-1 on last week’s road trip, losing to three of the NHL’s worst teams in Ottawa, Chicago and Philadelphia along the way.Yet Nashville is still 22-13-2, good for second place in the Central Division and third in the Western Conference. It is only four points behind Winnipeg in the Central and only three points off the pace of last season, when it won the Presidents’ Trophy for the first time with 117 points.To a man, the Predators are hopeful the break results in a return to the win column.“Hopefully, we come back hungrier and rested, maybe a bit healthier than we are now and go from there,” defenseman Ryan Ellis said.The Stars (18-16-3) were in position to go into the holiday break with momentum Rod Brind'Amour Jersey , but couldn’t build on a 1-0 second period lead Sunday night and fell 3-1 to the New York Islanders at American Airlines Arena.Aiming to win consecutive games for the first time since early December, Dallas instead lost for the sixth time in eight games, all in regulation. First-year coach Jim Montgomery wasn’t quite willing to use playing on back-to-back nights as an excuse.“Guys were tired tonight, but a lot of other teams have similar schedules and they find ways to win hockey games,” he said. “It’s a mindset of pushing the envelope and wanting to make plays, wanting to be a difference-maker.”Their recent skid aside, the Stars remain in fourth place in the Central, tied for the Western’s last playoff spot with Edmonton. The problem lately has been an offense that was once explosive, but has slid to 24th in the league with 99 goals in 37 matches.Slow starts have also plagued Dallas. Its 18 goals in first periods rank last in the league.“As a group, we don’t prepare well enough,” Montgomery said. “I don’t have, obviously Womens Scott Darling Jersey , my finger on it. I hope it would be better.” NEWARK, N.J. — The Carolina Hurricanes went into the Christmas break feeling good about themselves after a win over the Boston Bruins on Dec. 22. The New Jersey Devils made their return to work a triumphant one Thursday by beating the Bruins.Now the task for two of the teams on the outside looking in of the Eastern Conference’s playoff picture is to figure out how to play all the time like they did against the Bruins.The Devils and Hurricanes will each be looking to build some consistency Saturday afternoon, when New Jersey hosts Carolina at the Prudential Center.Article continues below ...Both teams resumed play Thursday, when the Devils defeated the host Bruins, 5-2, and the visiting Hurricanes fell to the Washington Capitals, 3-1.The Devils (13-16-7) are looking to win consecutive games for the first time since Nov. 13-15 and only the second time since opening the campaign with four straight victories. If New Jersey is to build a winning streak, it will require the type of formula head coach John Hynes saw on display against the Bruins.“Our recipe to be good is we got a great performance in goal, our special teams were both very good and we had a real detailed, gritty, cohesive, systematic 5-on-5 game Youth Sebastian Aho Jersey ,” Hynes said following practice Friday. “And that’s what we need to do to win.”The Hurricanes (15-16-5) have also struggled to string together victories. Carolina is 4-8-2 since its most recent set of back-to-back wins and has just three winning streaks all season.On Thursday, the Hurricanes failed to build on their pre-break win over the Bruins in a sluggish loss to the defending Stanley Cup champion Capitals. Carolina recorded just eight shots apiece in the first and second periods and went 0-for-4 on the power play.“I think we just weren’t ready to go like we needed to be,” Hurricanes head coach Rod Brind’Amour told reporters following the game. “That’s on me. I saw it and talked about it, but I should have done something different. I don’t know what, but we were not ready to go like we needed to be against that team at this time of the year.”MacKenzie Blackwood and Petr Mrazek, each of whom started at goalie for the Devils and Hurricanes on Thursday, are likely to be in net again Saturday for their respective teams.Blackwood, a 22-year-old rookie, earned his first NHL win Thursday, when he made 40 saves. Blackwood, who has made four appearances and two starts, has never faced the Hurricanes.Mrazek took the loss Thursday after stopping 30 shots against the Capitals. He is 4-1-0 in six career appearances against the Devils.A pair of key Devils players Authentic Teuvo Teravainen Jersey , left wingers Taylor Hall and Marcus Johansson, will miss Saturday’s game. Hall didn’t play Thursday due to a lower body injury while Johansson, who is on injured reserve, has been sidelined the previous two games due to an upper body injury.Hurricanes defenseman Hayden Fleury, who hasn’t played since Dec. 13 due to a concussion, skated with his teammates Friday. His availability for Saturday is uncertain. Carolina may also be without center Jordan Staal, who was out the previous two games with an upper body injury.
