Surging Predators ready to roll over struggling Rangers

(TSX / STATS) -- After losing in the Stanley Cup Final, many teams struggle out of the gate the following season. The Nashville Predators are no exception.

Fortunately for them, the Predators' hangover appears to have lasted two games.

Nashville comes to Madison Square Garden to face the New York Rangers on Saturday afternoon on a 4-0-1 run, a strong response to dropping their first two games by a combined 8-3. The heart of that turnaround has been defense, as the Predators have held their past four opponents to three regulation goals.
