You are looking live at Bridgestone Arena as the San Jose Sharks continue their road trip this evening in Music City. The Nashville Predators have always been a tough team for Team Teal. In fact the last time they were in town, Pekke Rinne put on a show.
This San Jose squad is on a good run. Despite the hiccup in Anaheim, getting 16 out of a possible 20 points is exceptional for this team. A 17-7-2 road record is the best in the West. As for goaltender Martin Jones, he’s quietly heating up. He’s 8-1-1 with a 1.97 goal against average and a .929 save percentage.
As for the team around him, everyone has been playing their role, and playing well. Here’s how we believe the Sharks will roll tonight:
Hertl – Thornton – Pavelski
Nieto – Marleau – Ward
Donskoi – Couture – Wingels
Zubrus – Tierney – Karlsson
Vlasic – Braun
Martin – Burns
Dillon – DeMelo
For the Minions… I mean Predators, they’re halfway through their four game homestand, and lost three straight on home ice. The team is clinging to the second Wild Card in the West by a point. As a Saturday tradition, the Predators will wear yellow helmets… kinda “Despicable” if you ask me.
Newcomer Ryan Johansen has struggling to get back on his groove since his trade from Columbus. He has a goal and two assists in his last five games.
