The Nashville Predators (2-3-0) faceoff against the Florida Pathers (2-4-0) for their first of two meetings this season.  Florida will look to get some kind of offense going, as they have only scored 13 goals in their first 6 games.  Meanwhile, Nashville will look to build off their dominant performance against the Islanders on Friday and try to build momentum for the rest of their home stand.   TV/RADIO COVERAGE Nashville: Fox Sports Tennessee and 102.5 The Game Florida: Fox Sports Florida and 560 WQAM Stream (Do not click on any ads because they will download viruses): http://livetv.ru/en/eventinfo/194256_florida_nashville/ Listen Online Season Series This is the first time these teams have played each other this season.
