First the good news;

The bad news;
The Predators lost 2-0.
The Predators were hoping to regain their “mojo” after the Christmas break, coming off of a disastrous road trip where they only picked up one point in four games, but as hard as they played, they couldn’t get the puck in the net.

Fort Campbell, KY – Jeremy Rains remembers his father’s love of flying. He remembers he was tall, so tall he was almost too tall to become a helicopter pilot for the U.S. Army.
“He was a big guy, everybody called him a gentle giant,” Rains said. “He was 6-4 and if you look at pictures he is always the tallest guy. I just remember him as a larger than life personality.”
U.S. Army Capt. Terry L. Rains died December 12th, 1985, in the crash of Arrow Air Flight 1285 that also killed 247 of his fellow Soldiers and eight crewmembers.
