At the Trade Deadline it sure didn’t seem like this game between the Jets and Predators would mean much but just four points separates these two Central Division rivals. While Nashville lost their last game to Chicago they are on a 6-3-1 run in their last ten games.
The Jets are hoping that Pierre-Luc Dubois will be ready to go but he was officially listed by head coach Rick Bowness as a game-time decision.
