The Predators will be taking on the Vancouver Canucks on Tuesday in Nashville. Coming off a victory over St. Louis on Saturday, Nashville will look to keep the momentum going with a rematch over the team who ended the Predators' season last year. Nashville has won 11 of its last 13 games, while Vancouver has won four out of its last five.

Nashville has (at least temporarily) pulled ahead of St. Louis for fourth place in the Western Conference Standings (and second place in the Central Division), while Vancouver is holding on to second place in the West and a firm lead in the Northwest Division.

This is the third meeting between these two teams, Nashville won the first meeting in Vancouver 5-1 on October 20, while Vancouver took the second meeting on their home ice 6-5 on December 1. This is the first meeting in Nasvhville between the two teams, and they will close the season series in Nashville in two weeks, on February 21.
