The Nashville Predators have just six games left in the season, but likely won't make the playoffs.

The Preds are eight points out from the final spot and would need a miracle to get back in the thick of things.

Even though they likely won't make the post season there's still a lot to play for.

First and foremost, team pride, which Captain Shea Weber said everyone still has.

If not for pride, then the chance to spoil other teams playoff seeding's, or just the chance to get in the post-season.

Even though they won't make the playoffs, the final few games will give the younger players some much needed experience on the ice and a few wins could create some off-season momentum that would be a huge help heading into next season.
