Predators open road trip at Canucks

Nashville (6-4-1) at Vancouver (6-6-0), 10:00 p.m. EST

VANCOUVER, British Columbia (Ticker) -- The Nashville Predators

begin a six-game road trip Tuesday when they visit the Vancouver

Canucks.

The road hasn't been kind to the Predators, who are 1-3-1 away

from home this season.

Nashville has won its last two games, including a 3-2 shootout

victory over Florida on Saturday.

Rookie goaltender Pekka Rinne has been in net for both

victories. The 26-year-old stopped 24 shots in the most recent

win and denied Florida on all three chances during the bonus

format. He now has three career victories in six games.

Vancouver lost the first game of a six-game homestand, dropping

a 3-2 decision to Detroit on Sunday.

The Canucks had killed off the first 12 power plays they faced

at home before allowing three tallies while the Red Wings were

on the man advantage.

Nashville won the three of the four meetings between the teams

last season.
