The Predators begin a four-game road trip tonight in Northern California as they meet the Sharks in San Jose.
It's the first of three meetings between the two clubs this season, and it starts a stretch of three games in four nights against Californian teams for the Predators.
"Going on the road and getting some wins and building something on the road, there's always something to be said for that," Nashville Head Coach Peter Laviolette said. "I think if you've been around long enough you've come back from road trips and [you've been successful] and then I've been on road trips that go the other way, too. But our group is ready to go on the road. I feel like we're in a good place to win some hockey games."
