Keep an eye on...

Nashville Predators -

Mike Fisher – Nashville has been getting as much production as possible out of Fisher with 11 points in his last nine games (5g, 6a)

Calgary Flames -

Mikael Backlund – Now fourth on the team in goals scored, Backlund has a goal in each of his past two games

Main Storylines

Nashville Predators -

  • Goaltender Carter Hutton will get his first start since a 2-1 loss to Carolina on January 5th, how will his return be?
  • Can Nashville’s offensive production get back on the right track with only one goal in the past two games?
  • Patric Hornqvist’s return for the Predators on Sunday, returning from a lower body injury, was labeled as “just okay” by coach Trotz, but will tonight be a better evening for him?

Calgary Flames -

  • Goaltender Karri Ramo gets the start after last night’s 2-0 win against Carolina, how will he play on the tail end of a back-to-back?
  • Calgary has scored eight goals in their last nine games and have been shutout in five of those, can their offense ignite against Nashville?
  • Second-leading scorer Mike Cammalleri sustained a concussion against Pittsburgh on Sunday and will be out again tonight, can the Flames continue to adjust?

Last time out...

Austin Watson, Nick Spaling, David Legwand, Matt Halischuk all scored to snap Nashville’s eight-game losing en route to their 4-3 win against the Calgary Flames on April 23rd, 2013

One interesting fact...

The Predators haven’t lost in regulation to the Flames in their past six games, going 4-0-2 (all since the beginning of the 2010-11 season). Their home record against Calgary is now to 17-9-2 (excluding one tie).
