Penguins-Predators Preview

(AP) -- The Nashville Predators acquired James Neal from the Pittsburgh Penguins to aid their transition from former coach Barry Trotz's defensive-minded system to a more dynamic one under Peter Laviolette.

With Neal as its leading goal scorer, Nashville is off to one of the best starts in franchise history and will try to remain the league's only team without a regulation loss Saturday night in the teams' first meeting since the trade.

Neal has scored five times for the Predators (5-0-2) and is well on his way to surpassing 20 goals for the seventh time in as many NHL seasons. He had 89 goals and 95 assists in 199 games with the Penguins, but registered two goals and two assists in 13 contests this past postseason.
