With Thursday's game in the rearview mirror, the Nashville Predators seek a fresh start against the San Jose Sharks (at 9:30 p.m. CT). 

The Preds (9-5-2) surrendered the most goals they've allowed in franchise history in a 9-4 loss to the Colorado Avalanche on Thursday. Nashville held a 3-2 lead in the second period, but then allowed six goals in row.

All 22 players on the Preds roster are currently healthy. The team traveled to California on Friday and did not practice. 

The Sharks (6-10-1) have won two in a row, including a 6-5 triumph over the Minnesota Wild on Thursday. San Jose fell to Nashville, 5-2, on Oct. 8 at Bridgestone Arena. 

The Preds held a full morning skate on Saturday at SAP Center. Below is a Preds projected lineup based on the session:
