Can Preds Weight out Oilers?

Wednesday, January 10, 2001 at 1:00am

Tonight the Nashville Predators get a chance to avenge one of their ugliest losses of the season when they visit the Edmonton Oilers and their talented captain Doug Weight.

Weight is one of the top 10 scorers in the NHL, and he has helped the Oilers go 2-0 against Nashville so far this season. On Dec. 6, the Predators fell 4-0 in Edmonton in a game in which Nashville managed just 18 shots, despite four power plays.

When the teams face off tonight at 8 p.m. (Fox Sports Net and WTN-FM), the 15-20-7-1 Predators will try to return to the form that earned them a 4-2 win at St. Louis last Thursday. Since then, Nashville has lost two straight, falling 2-0 to Buffalo Saturday and 2-1 at Vancouver Monday.
