The Guide to Saturday

Nashville Predators v. San Jose Sharks (@Bridgestone Arena; Nashville, TN)

With San Jose on the end of a really long road-trip and riding a 5 game losing streak, this seems like a very winnable game for the Predators.  Nashville is (22-8-7) at home, (5-3-2) in their last 10 while on a 2 game home winning streak and holding a hot Calgary side to one goal in their last competition.  The Sharks haven’t only looked bad, but have been out-shot horribly in their last 2 and I just find it hard to see them getting it together and finding an answer tonight.  San Jose has been (4-6-0) in their last 10 with a previously mentioned 5 game losing streak hindering them right now. In the last meeting with San Jose at home the Predators were able to stick it to them 3-1. Pekka Rinne is 3-0-0 with a 0.99 GAA and .959 SV% in his past three starts (Via. Adam Vingan – Tennessean) and has looked near impossible to put one past lately.  With Nashville tied in points with St. Louis they are eyeing down this game as a way to get themselves out of the wild card and in the 3 spot of the Central Division.  Not to forget, Martin Jones posted a sub .900 save percentage last game.  This Sharks team is lost. Roll Preds.

PICK: Nashville Predators to win in regulation. (+115)
