<i>It's All Your Fault</i>: Analytics, Schmanalytics

Nooooo! It was going so well! The Preds won three games in a row for the first time since October — a run that included a home-and-home against reigning Stanley Cup champions the St. Louis Blues — and then on Tuesday night against the Carolina Hurricanes, the team bumbled their way through 60 minutes only to lose 4-1. Oof.

This week hosts Michael Gallagher, Geert De Lombaerde and Megan Seling wonder, was Tuesday night's game is a sign that the team is back on their old bullshit? Or has the team started to make lasting changes under John Hynes and that game was just a bump in the road that's (finally) going in the right direction?

Also discussed: analytics. Do they have value? And because the Preds desperately need another defenseman, Gallagher takes a closer look at some of the players David Poile should be considering before Monday's trade deadline.

Plus: Viktor Arvidsson is obviously still hurting from an injury. Should he be playing or healing?
