The <a href="http://www.nhl.com/nhl/ap...08">NHL</a>
just released the schedule for the 07-08 hockey season and at first glance it looks favorable for the Preds.
<strong>- Saturday Night Fever: </strong>The Preds have 14 Saturday home games. For a team trying to get butts in seats nothing is better than a Saturday home game.
<strong>- Never Far Away:</strong> The Preds have only tow long road trips...a five game swing in Late October that takes them to the Northwest before ending in Chicago and Detroit and a six game trip that starts February 27th that takes the team from Buffalo all the way to the NW again and then back to Detroit for the final game. All in all not a real punishing road schedule (Nashville's central location in the states does help this though)
<strong>- Eight Great At The End:</strong> The NHL has scheduled the last eight games all against division rivals. That is GREAT! This is not a Preds thing...this is league wide. Hopefully this will lead to some great races for division titles at the end of the year. A great move by the NHL!
