The Columbus Blue Jackets look to rebound from a tough home loss when they hit the road and head north to take on the Detroit Red Wings on Tuesday.
The Canucks have to wonder what this season would be like if they could just figure things out on the road.
Vancouver enters play as one of the worst teams on the road, as they significantly struggle on both sides of the puck.
The Canucks sits at just 6-15-1-2 away from Rogers Arena, as they’re getting outscored on average 3.12-2.17.
Digging themselves early holes has been a huge issue for the Canucks. Vancouver has given up the first goal in 34 of the 52 encounters.
Given how good Ryan Miller has played against Nashville in his career, things bode well for Vancouver.
Miller already has a shutout under his belt this season against the Preds, which improved him to 7-3-3 against them in his career. He boasts an impressive 1.93 GAA.
The Predators had high aspirations for this 3 game home stand, but things just haven’t gone according to plan.
Nashville has tallied just 2 goals through the first two games, but they may not need many goals here given how good Rinne has played versus the Canucks.
Last month Rinne allowed just 0.97 GAA in the two meetings and has played extremely well as of late.
One huge key to this season’s success for Nashville has been their home play as a whole. Despite struggling offensively as of late, they still hold a 14-6-4-2 record inside Bridgestone.
Averaging a 2.81-2.19 score over that span of home contests, the Predators have really leaned on their quick tempo and ability to control the puck in the opposition’s zone.
With goals likely at a minimum here, winning the time on attack is going to be a huge factor for Nashville.
