Predators hit the road for a while

ST. PAUL, Minn. -- After opening the season with a pair of home games, Nashville's game Tuesday night against the Wild kicks off a two-week, seven game road trip. From Minnesota, the Preds will travel to St. Louis for a game Thursday before heading to the west coast for games against Anaheim, Phoenix, Los Angeles and San Jose before making another stop in St. Louis. Nashville won't play a home game game again until Feb. 7.

"I don't mind going on the road," Trotz said. "I like the fact that your team can come together. It's easy playing at home, anybody can play at home. This is where you are going to find out about your team, playing on the road."

Nashville alternate captain Mike Fisher said going on a long road trip, especially early in the season, can be a good thing.

"After a couple at home, sometimes the road is good for you," Fisher said. "It can force you to play a real solid, team game, play simple.

"It's a tough trip for us, no question. But I think it'll be a great test for us early."

Quote of the Day

It's very special, obviously; there is draft day and then there's the day that you sign your first deal. It's been a crazy couple of weeks and I'm very honored to be able to do that."
