Suddenly surging Predators host shaky Lightning

The Nashville Predators have flipped the script on their strange season.

Less than a month ago, they were also-rans, serving as foils for the rumor mill that was anticipating which playoff-contending teams would pluck talent from their lineup before the April 12 trade deadline.

But Saturday, as they face the defending Stanley Cup-champion Tampa Bay Lightning in Nashville, these same Predators are the hottest team in the NHL, winners of nine of their past 10 games and in solid playoff position.
