And so it begins.
Predators are coming in hot (but probably battered) from their game 7 win two days ago. Sharks have been healing and resting (with hard practices) for a week.
I’m expecting both teams to come out hard in the early part of the game to try and get an advantage.
Sharks have yet to change their line up this post season. Haley, Zubrus, DeMelo, Tennyson and Reimer have zero minutes of ice time (and the first four haven’t even dressed for a game). Tennyson is back in NHL after three-game conditioning stint with AHL Barracuda.
