With the NHL releasing the 2014-2015 full season schedule, it’s time to list out and break down Nashville’s road to returning to the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

The Predators will start their season on October 9th at home against the Ottawa Senators. After a three-game home stand against Dallas and Calgary as well, they will head out to Winnipeg for the start of a back-to-back on October 17th, with Chicago on the 18th.

Some facts about the schedule:

Nashville’s longest road trip is six games (October 29th – November 8th), which isn’t long at all compared to some road trips they’ve seen over the past handful of years.

Nashville’s longest home stand is only four games, which happens twice this season (November 22nd – November 29th and February 10th – February 17th).

The Predators play 24 games on both Tuesday and Saturday this season, tying for the day with the largest number of games played upon it. They will also play ten sets of back-to-back games this year, including a back-to-back set of back-to-backs on December 29th and 30th and January 3rd and 4th.

Former coach Barry Trotz will make his return to the Music City on January 16th, which should be a very touching moment I’m sure.

Chicago and Nashville will matchup only four times against each other this season, a low against divisional opponents for the Predators. On the other hand, they play Minnesota six times, highest against divisional opponents for Nashville

Below is the press release about the schedule from the Nashville Predators PR department:

“Nashville, Tenn. (June 22, 2014) – The Nashville Predators will begin the Peter Laviolette era in Smashville when they open the 2014-15 season on home ice against the Ottawa Senators on Thursday, Oct. 9. It marks just the second time in the last seven seasons the Predators will open a season on Bridgestone Arena ice, and the first time they’ll host an Eastern Conference foe in Game No. 1 of the season since the franchise’s first-ever game 17 seasons ago (Oct. 10, 1998 vs. Florida).

In his first season behind the bench of the Nashville Predators, Laviolette will see each of his former teams skate on Bridgestone Arena ice as each Eastern Conference team visits Nashville for the second straight season. Laviolette’s first crack at a former team will come Dec. 27 when Philadelphia comes to town; Carolina will visit on Jan. 6 and the New York Islanders on March 5.

On Jan. 16, former Preds head coach Barry Trotz will return to Bridgestone Arena for the first time when the Washington Capitals come to town for the Preds only Friday home game of the year.

Nashville will play six of its first eight games within the friendly confines of Bridgestone Arena before heading out of town for its first extended road trip of the season, a 12-day, six-game trip from Oct. 29-Nov. 8. The six-game trip, the Preds longest of the season, allows Bridgestone Arena to host the annual CMA Awards. The team will also be on the road from March 9-15 to accommodate the 2015 SEC Men’s Basketball Tournament. The Predators’ heaviest home month will be February, with 10 contests at home; both December and March are road-heavy for the Preds, each featuring eight games away from Nashville. The club will get a five-day hiatus from Jan. 22-26 as the League breaks for the 2015 All-Star festivities in Columbus.

“The announcement of the 2014-15 schedule is yet another sign that a new season of Predators hockey is just around the corner,” Bridgestone Arena and Nashville Predators CEO Jeff Cogen said. “This is a great schedule and one that our fans will certainly enjoy as we start a new chapter of Nashville Predators hockey. In addition to exciting changes behind the bench, fans can look forward to seeing young players like Seth Jones, Filip Forsberg and Calle Jarnkrok play with another year of experience under their belts alongside veteran fan favorites in Shea Weber, Mike Fisher, Patric Hornqvist and Pekka Rinne. Things are shaping up for this to be a season to remember in Smashville.”

The 2014-15 schedule is highlighted by 13 Saturday home games, eight of which will be against Eastern Conference opponents and the remaining five versus Central Division rivals. Additional highlights include an early look at 2014 Art Ross Trophy winner Sidney Crosby and the Pittsburgh Penguins on Oct. 25, a visit from the defending Stanley Cup Champion Los Angeles Kings on Nov. 25; and Saturday afternoon contests against the 2014 Eastern Conference Champion New York Rangers on Feb. 7 and former divisional foe Detroit Red Wings on Feb. 28.

Fans can celebrate Thanksgiving with the Preds when Nashville hosts their second straight Turkey-day tilt vs. the Edmonton Oilers on Nov. 27. It is unlikely fans will be able to find much love in the air on Feb. 14when the New Jersey Devils roll into town for a Valentine’s Day match. On St. Patrick’s Day, March 17, the Minnesota Wild visit Music City.

The schedule includes 11 sets of back-to-back games, with seven of the two-games-in-two-nights scenarios taking place on the road and the remaining four featuring a game at home and a game on the road. The Predators close out their 2014-15 regular season schedule with four contests against Central Division opponents, two at home and two on the road. The home portion of the Preds schedule will end with a Fan Appreciation game on Thursday, April 9 vs. the Minnesota Wild. Nashville wraps up the 2014-15 campaign on the road for the seventh time in eight seasons versus the Dallas Stars on April 11 at the American Airlines Center.

Thirty-nine of Nashville’s 41 home games fall on a Tuesday, Thursday or Saturday. One game will take place on a Sunday and one game will be played on a Friday. Face-off for 35 of the Predators home contests will be at 7 p.m. (Central time), with the exceptions being 6 p.m. start times on Nov. 15 vs. Winnipeg, Dec. 6 vs. Chicago and March 7 vs. Winnipeg; 2 p.m. contests on Feb. 7 vs. the New York Rangers and Feb. 28 vs. Detroit; and a lone 4 p.m. start on March 29 vs. Calgary. During the entire season, the Preds will play nine afternoon contests (starting before 5 p.m. CT).

Season-tickets are on sale now and start as low as $15 per game. Half season-ticket packages start at just $25 per game and 13 Game Flex Plans allow fans to customize their ticket package while enjoying season-ticket holder benefits. Great interest-free payment plans are currently available for all Nashville Predators season-ticket packages.

At six home games this season, all fans in attendance will receive a bobble head. Fans can collect the full Predators player series by attending all six designated games. A full promotional schedule, along with the dates of the bobble head nights, will be available at a later date.

Single game tickets will go on sale in conjunction with the Nashville Predators Open House on July 12. “
