The Nashville Predators look to halt a two-game losing streak, as they begin an important five-game homestand tonight, as they host the San Jose Sharks. Tone's Takes breaks down the game.

Nashville Predators vs San Jose Sharks Prediction: Can the Predators End Their Skid?

Nashville is coming off back-to-back losses over the weekend, 4-1 at home to Florida and 3-2, in a shootout, at Pittsburgh. The Preds are clinging to the top Wild Card Spot in the West, with a 1 point lead on Dallas and a 3 point lead on the surging Golden Knights. Nashville has Edmonton, St.Louis, and Calgary on this homestand, so getting off to a good start is imperative. The San Jose Sharks have had a rough season, they played very well until the All-Star break but have spiraled since then, The Sharks are losers of 6 in a row and 7 of their last 8. Most recently, they dropped a 4-2 decision to the Canucks in Vancouver on Saturday night.

Nashville Predators vs San Jose Sharks Prediction

At home, this season, where Nashville has a record of 22-12, the Preds average 3.21 goals per game, and their Power Play is 11th at 23.6%. Nashville is allowing 2.50 goals per game and their Penalty Kill is 13th, at home, at 82%. Five on five at home, the Preds are 24th in goals and 1st in goals against. Interestingly, the Preds are last in high danger chances at home (yet average 3.21 goals per game) but they are also first in high danger chances allowed so the Preds don't give teams much breathing room on home ice. Jusse Saros is projected to start in net tonight, Saros is having a fine season as he sports a 2.55 GAA along with a .921 Save percentage.

Kaapo Kahkonen started in goal on Saturday so we could see James Reimer tonight. Reimer has been the better of the two.

Nashville needs this win to keep pace in the playoff race, going on prolonged losing streaks is not ideal this time of year. The Preds are a veteran team and should be ready tonight, I like them to win in regulation.
