Predators not panicking amid worst skid of season

Posted: Updated:
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - No longer do the Nashville Predators sit atop the NHL standings, mired in a five-game skid - their worst this season.
Yet the Predators see this slide as a chance to improve on some weaknesses while continuing their chase for home-ice advantage in the playoffs.
Captain Shea Weber said Friday it's a lot better going through a skid now with time to correct any issues than just before the playoffs begin, even as they work through their biggest challenge yet.
The Predators had been cruising under first-year coach Peter Laviolette, they hadn't lost consecutive games in regulation until this stretch. They still rank second both in the NHL and in the Western Conference behind Anaheim.
