The San Jose Sharks not only ended their two-game home stand at .500; they also ended a four-game slide that started from the second game of the previous road trip against the Pittsburgh Penguins. Tonight, they face the Nashville Predators at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville in hopes of building on their win on Tuesday night.
The Predators are currently riding a two-game winning streak, with wins against the Dallas Stars and the New York Rangers.
