the Nashville Predators are a shorthanded team.

11 2019 .
Make no mistake about it [url=]Winnipeg Jets Hoodies Womens[/url] , They are currently operating without All-Star defenseman P.K. Subban, as well as top six forwards Filip Forsberg, Viktor Arvidsson and Kyle Turris.But they also know theyre capable of playing better hockey than they did in 5-3 and 5-2 road losses on a road trip to Vancouver and Calgary, respectively. Those outcomes dropped them out of the top spot in the Western Conference and left them in a tie for first place in the Central Division with Colorado.Nashville will try to get well at home this week, starting a three-game homestand in Bridgestone Arena Tuesday night against the Ottawa Senators.Article continues below ...This team is good at staying within the day, forward Craig Smith said of the Predators. Weve done a great job of not looking in the rearview mirror. But the results in the last couple of games is not where we want it. Well take ownership of it and make the right corrections.One of those corrections will presumably be on defense, where Nashville needs to be stronger with so many proven scorers unavailable. Allowing five goals in consecutive road games is not the recipe for success with most teams, but especially so for one with four core players on injured reserve.To that end [url=]Winnipeg Jets Hats Womens[/url] , defenseman Ryan Ellis says the Predators have to simplify their game and not get caught out of position as much.They wanted it more, he said of the loss in Calgary Saturday night. At times, we played well and at times they outplayed us, so its just about getting back to basics. Weve obviously been hit with the injury bug, and when that happens, you have to play very predictable for your teammates.Nashville (19-10-1) is only 8-7-1 in its last 16 games, its depth being eroded by injuries. But it has won seven of its last nine at home, and in Ottawa [url=]Custom Winnipeg Jets Jerseys[/url] , it has appeared to draw a favorable foil to open its final stretch of home games before Christmas.The Senators (13-14-4) are coming off a 2-1 overtime loss Sunday to Boston, and are starting a three-game road trip. Life away fr om the Canadian capital hasnt been kind to Ottawa, which is only 3-9-1 on the road. Only New Jersey owns a worse road record at 3-10-2.Backup goalie Mike McKenna gave the Senators a chance to steal two points by making 42 saves, but he couldnt stop Torey Krugs one-timer at 3:07 of overtime that led to Ottawas third loss in four games.Were still making strides to get wh ere we want to be defensively, Senators forward Zack Smith said. We have to figure that out pretty quick here Mike stood on his head for a lot of the saves tonight.Ottawa will also bring a shorthanded roster to Nashville. Defenseman Dylan DeMelo (upper-body injury) wont go on the road trip, while forward Bobby Ryan (concussion) and center Matt Duchene (lower-body injury) presently reside on IR.This will be the teams first meeting of the season. Theyll conclude their season series on December 17 in Ottawa. The Anaheim Ducks and New Jersey Devils got away from what theyd be doing in their most recent games. That wasnt a bad thing for the Devils, who would like to maintain their current direction. The Ducks, on the other hand [url=][/url] , hope to get back in their groove as soon as possible.Both teams will get a chance when they meet Sunday evening at Honda Center.The Devils (10-12-5) are coming off a 6-3 win at the Los Angeles Kings on Thursday night, ending a six-game losing streak that dropped them into last place in the Eastern Conference.Article continues below ...New Jersey had two days in southern California to enjoy the win but now face back-to-back games at Anaheim and the San Jose Sharks on Monday.Its important for us to kind of hit the reset button again and get ready for the back-to-back coming up this weekend, New Jersey forward Kyle Palmieri said after the win in Los Angeles.The Ducks (15-11-5) came out flat against the visiting Carolina Hurricanes on Friday night and then were overrun in the third period of the 4-1 loss, ending a five-game winning streak.Any time you have a lapse, its going to be frustrating, Anaheim defenseman Josh Manson said. You have to learn from it, come back (Saturday), well have a good practice and be ready for Sunday.The matchup between the Ducks and Devils will also mark the second return of New Jersey defenseman Sami Vatanen to Anaheim since he was traded to the Devils on Nov. 30 [url=]Vegas Golden Knights T-Shirts Womens[/url] , 2017, for forward Adam Henrique.Vatanen, whom the Ducks sel ected in the fourth round of the 2009 NHL Draft and made his debut with Anaheim in February 2012, had an assist in his first return to Honda Center, a 4-2 win by the Ducks on March 18.Henrique had a six-game point streak end in the loss to Carolina on Friday night, but he remains third on the team in points with 17.Palmieri also came up through the Anaheim organization. He was selected by the Ducks in the same draft as Vatanen but in the first round. Palmieri spent parts of four seasons in Anaheim before he was traded to the Devils on June 26, 2015, for second and third-round picks in the 2015 NHL Draft.Palmieri scored a career-high 30 goals in his first season with New Jersey. Hes on pace to break that mark [url=]Vegas Golden Knights Hoodies Womens[/url] , coming into the weekend with 14 goals in 27 games.Palmieri scored twice against the Kings on Thursday, ending a four-game road losing streak, though the Devils are still just 3-10-1 away fr om home.Palmieri said road trips do have their way of bringing teams together.You get away, your routine chances a little bit and its a fresh start. Weve got to just focus on the game at hand, Palmieri said. You cant worry about our road record this year, and you cant worry about October or November. Its something to build off, for sure.
