[Open Thread] Game Fifty-Five Preview: Nashville Predators at San Jose Sharks

2nd in Central Division
8th in Western Conference
2nd in Pacific Division
4th in Western Conference

Well, actually, third period preview.  Sorry about being so late.

This far it's been uncomfortably parallel to last night's game.  The Sharks are in some kind of funk where they either can't get into the other team's end of the ice, or when they do go pass-happy and never get off a shot even when it's available.  On the bright side, it's good to see Jonathan Cheechoo having notched a couple of tallies.  Back to the game.
