The San Jose Sharks and Nashville Predators meet Tuesday in NHL action at the Bridgestone Arena.

The San Jose Sharks need a victory here after a rough 0-3 start to the NHL season. The San Jose Sharks are averaging one goal per game and are scoring on zero percent of their power play opportunities. Logan Couture leads San Jose with one goal, Joe Thornton has one assist and Brent Burns has 12 shots on goal. Defensively, the San Jose Sharks are allowing four goals per game and are killing 88.9 percent of their opponents power plays. Aaron Dell has given up four goals on 39 shots faced and Martin Jones has allowed eight goals on 58 shots. The San Jose Sharks have allowed three or more goals in 14 of their last 16 games.

The Nashville Predators look for a nice home win to get a game above a .500 record. The Nashville Predators are averaging four goals per game and are scoring on 25 percent of their power play opportunities. Filip Forsberg leads Nashville with two goals, Matt Duchene has five assists and Viktor Arvidsson has nine shots on goal. Defensively, the Nashville Predators are allowing 3.5 goals per game and are killing 80 percent of their opponents power plays. Pekka Rinne has given up two goals on 24 shots faced and Juuse Saros has allowed four goals on 27 shots. The Nashville Predators have allowed two or less goals in 10 of their last 13 games.

The Sharks are 6-2 in their last 8 games playing on 2 days rest, 6-20 in their last 26 games as an underdog and 2-14 in their last 16 overall. The Predators are 7-3 in their last 10 Tuesday games, 5-1 in their last 6 vs. Pacific and 1-4 in their last 5 overall. The under is 6-0 in Sharks last 6 overall. The over is 4-1-1 in Predators last 6 overall. The home team is 49-21 in the last 70 meetings.

The San Jose Sharks have looked awful sloppy through three games on both ends of the ice and that offense has done little to nothing up to this point. The Nashville Predators are one of the tougher teams in the league to play at home and have won five of the last eight meetings against the Sharks overall. The Sharks aren't a team I'm trying to back at the moment and they've been brutal in the underdog role dating back to late last season. Give me the Preds and the somewhat reasonable price.
