The NHL is back in action on Tuesday as the San Jose Sharks will clash with the Nashville Predators at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee. The Sharks will head into this game after a 4-1 home win over the Islanders, while the Preds achieved a valuable 3-0 road win over Edmonton. The Predators were the better team last season as they won two of three encounters last season.
San Jose Sharks Form
The Sharks do not have a good start at their home ground this season. They have 4 wins and 4 losses so far. However, it seems that they turned the tide in the last game as they beat the Islanders with a score of 4-1. This will be a hard game as the Predators are one of the best teams so far this season.
San Jose are placed on the 16th spot in the league in scoring, putting up 3.25 goals per game. At the other end of the ice, they are placed on the 8th spot in the league in goals allowed, letting in an average of 2.63 goals per game.
The Predators are one of the better teams in the NHL season after season. They played a very dominant game against the Oilers and they showed their class once again. They won the most points last season and it seems that they are on the right track to do it again this year. For this game, they will be without their standard starter, Pekka Rinne.
Nashville is on the 11th spot in the league in scoring, putting up 3.38 goals per game. At the defensive end of the ice, they are the best team in the league in goals allowed at 1.88 goals per game.
The Sharks have a mixed success so far this season. They will be facing one of the strongest team this season and it will be very hard to play against the Predators defence.
On the other side, the Predators are one of the main favourites for the Stanley Cup. They are playing very well and their defence is the best in the league so far. I expect a solid Predators win in this game.
