After seeing the Nashville Predators struggle at home for the past few weeks it was good to see the familiar team that fans have grown to love make a pit stop at Bridgestone Arena in a 3-2 win over the Anaheim Ducks.

The team has been inconsistent this season but generally has played better on the road than at home which is highly unusual for a team that has averaged 26 wins at home since the lockout.

The issue appears to have started during the second round of last year's playoffs when they lost three straight home games to Vancouver on home ice. Last night's win brought the team's record at home back to the .500 mark at 5-5-3.

The Predators really need to have the victory launch them to more success on home ice as they play three  games against key opponents this week with Calgary, Detroit, and St. Louis visiting this week.

Longer term, the Predators play 11 of the next 15 in Nashville and need to put together a series of wins to stockpile points before they face a heavy road schedule in March.

Here is our game story from last night and Barry Trotz's postgame presser.  Make the jump for the full round-up of everything from the game...
