The Nashville Predators (18-19-6) return home Tuesday to play the San Jose Sharks (27-10-6) for the start of a crucial five game home stand.
As it sits, the Predators are seven points out of the final playoff spot and are dangerously close to falling out of contention. The next nine games (seven of which will be played at home) will most likely determine how the rest of the season will play out. Needless to say, tonight is a must win game.no comments

I’ve been watching the Predators, and therefore Barry Trotz, for 12 years now and never have I seen a player so bluntly thrown under the bus as Carter Hutton was last night. It’s completely out of character for him. The doghouse? Yeah … he friggen loves the dog house. And you’ll get the occasional “Stalberg wasn’t there tonight” or like the full 2011-2012 season of Craig Smith needs to develop a bit better. But to come to a press conference and essentially blame the full blunt of a 2-1 loss against a mediocre team on a goalie is uncharacteristic of not only Trotz but any head coach in the National Hockey League.no comments
No, it was not Canada, Russia, Sweden, nor, for the second year in-a-row, United States who won the 2014 World Juniors Championship in Malmo. It was Finland, who knocked off the Swedes in the gold medal match, 3-2 in overtime.
Six Nashville Predators prospects participated in a total of thirty-one games. Filip Forsberg highlights the list of future Preds after being awarded ‘Most Valuable Player’ and ‘Top Forward’ in the tournament.

The Nashville Predators' point streak stopped at four games, after falling to the Carolina Hurricanes at PNC Arena 3-2 in regulation Sunday night.
