There’s nothing like springtime hockey in California when Nashville’s in town. Well, maybe that’s not totally accurate, but if the history of Sharks vs Predators is any indication, we could be in for a long, grueling series. The teams have split their last 30 games against each other, and 21 of those 30 games were decided by one goal.

  • Nashville is 7-18 in its last 25 games when playing on the road against San Jose.
  • San Jose is 3-6 in its last nine games at home.

The Sharks open as a healthy -162 favorite and they haven’t been paying off in this situation. They’ve gone just 3-6 in their last nine games as home favorites, but the Predators aren't much better as road dogs, posting a 3-5 record in their last eight games in that spot.
