Craziest Road Trip: February 5-10 (NY Islanders, Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal)

This four-game trip up north didn’t feature the toughest stretch of opposition. The Maple Leafs are the only squad of the bunch likely to make the Eastern Conference playoffs. Even so, each team gave Nashville everything they could handle and then some.

No games ended in regulation. The Islanders lost in overtime. The back to back didn’t go too well, as Toronto ended up winning a shootout while Ottawa put the Predators away in overtime. Nashville ended things on a winning note with a shootout win over the Canadiens.

We all know about the Nashville Predators’ home-ice advantage. It’s a beautiful thing to have in the playoffs. You have to be able to win on the road as well, and the 2017-18 Predators sit with one of the best road records in the league at 17-7-6. This trip served as a showcase of the Predators refusing to concede anything, even outside their home arena.
