Short-Handed Goals: Weber, Joel Ward, Vernon Fiddler, 1
Short-Handed Scoring: Weber (1g+1a), Scott Nichol (0g+2a)
Shots: Weber, 45
Shooting Percentage: Arnott, Erat, 25.0%

Wins: Dan Ellis, 4-7-1
Minutes Played: Ellis, 693
GAA: Pekka Rinne, 3.90
Save Percentage: Ellis, .886
Shutouts: None Recorded

Nashville Fun Fact: Against Calgary, Shea Weber eclipsed his goal total for the 2007-08 season, and was one of only two defensemen heading into Monday's games with 5 or more goals (the other was Sheldon Souray).

Nashville Player to Watch:
Jason Arnott has quite a history with the Sharks... a history of lighting up the scoresheet. Arnott has 25 goals and 24 assists in 48 career games against San Jose, along with 5 game winners.

Nashville Reason to Worry: The Predators have been eaten alive in the Shark Tank. Since 2003-04, the Sharks have gone 7-0-1 against the Predators in HP Pavilion.

Nashville Injury Report
Martin Erat (Upper Body, Out)
Joel Ward (Head, Questionable)

Nashville Projected Lineup
Hörnqvist-Arnott-Dumont
Jones-Legwand-Tootoo
Fiddler-Nichol-Peverley
Smithson-Bonk-Tarnasky

Weber-Suter
Hamhuis-Zanon
Koistinen-De Vries

Ellis



San Jose Team Leaders

Assists: Joe Thornton, 11
Points: Patrick Marleau, 16
Power Play Goals: Clowe, 5

Wins: Evgeny Nabokov, 10-2-0
Minutes Played: Nabokov, 729
GAA: Brian Boucher, 1.00
Save Percentage: Boucher, .958
Shutouts: Boucher, 2

San Jose Fun Fact:
The Sharks are 9-0-0 at home this season, making them the first team since the 1971-72 Chicago Blackhawks to win their first 9 home games.

San Jose Player to Watch: Ryan Clowe is the definition of "man on fire." Clowe has 5 goals and 2 assists in November, leading the team in goals and points since the turn of the month.

San Jose Reason to Worry: Um... uh... well, Nabokov might not... well, no, that's not a problem with Boucher performing... um... they might all die in a fiery crash on the way to the arena? A nuclear war might break out between now and face-off? Seriously, folks, I got nothin'.

Evgeny Nabokov (lower body, DTD)

San Jose Projected Lineup
Marleau-Thornton-Setoguchi
Michalek-Pavelski-Clowe

Boucher

Media Coverage: San Jose fans will be able to catch the game on CSN (in HD) and on 98.5 KFOX and the SJSRN. Folks in the Nashville area will be able to watch the game on FSN or listen in to 104.5 "The Zone."

San Jose has played like crap the last 2-3 games and finally got stung for it against Phoenix of all teams. If they don't turn it around for this game then expect a Preds win.

So now instead of "May the best team win!", it's "May the worst team lose!"?

I will consider this a victory if we lose this game by less than 5 goals.


The Colorado game showed us that Erat is intrumental in getting the puck up ice and establishing control of the game. I hope he comes back soon.

I advise everyone to check out the Sharks' GDT. Somebody posted it at 9PM local time the day before the game and the rest of the board went crazy.

New defensive strategy - pass the puck to Ellis.

well.. we seemed to have control of that right from the first drop of the puck. (cough, cough).

a perfect example of how sometimes hockey is a maddening game. dominated, outshot, out-chanced, out-skilled, out muscled. here we get beat in every aspect of a game in every way imaginable to the best team in the league chasing a home ice winning record to start the season.. and yet we get back on the plane with 2 points, and leave their fans going home scratching their heads..

which is understandable, because i'm still scratching mine a little this morning.

sometimes the puck just bounces your way. which it did for us pretty much all night.. ellis with 57 shots against, left about 27 rebounds in dangerous positions.. the puck flies flukes onto arnott's backhand on a simple little play.. then it magically drops onto fiddler's stick..

but, to go with this luck, we have to note;
...what a great, unbelievable job ellis did stopping shots all night, shots from all angles from all spots on the ice
...what a great job defensemen did at least 10 times, lifting or tieing up a stick on a wide open empty net shot from the weakside after a rebound,
...what a great job of hustling arnott did on his goal when they sort of relaxed,
...what a good shot fiddler made when the puck teleported to his stick,
...what a great pass legwand made to free up dumont which caused the rebound to suter,
...what great hands suter showed swatting that rebound out of the air,
...what a good play peverley made skating in and stealing the faceoff and making the pass back out to koistinen,
...and then what a great shot by koistinen.

lol, this game could make a man drink if he took it all too seriously.

I had to go to bed after the 2nd period (these west coast games are entirely too late...10:30 Eastern Time?), and it looks like I missed a valiant come back. With that said, the first two periods were all San Jose, and it was pretty embarrassing as a Predators fan. 303 is right - what a crazy game hockey is

LOL I went to sleep too when it was 2-0, it should have been 100-0 and I figured why lose sleep just to see them killed anyways. lol

Greta game by Ellis, and good to see the team never quit!
