How to Watch, Live Stream Flames vs. PredsThe Predators look to extend their winning streak to five games tonight as they host the Calgary Flames on Halloween at Bridgestone Arena. It's the first of three meetings between the two clubs this season; both teams will host the other in the month of February. The Preds are already in the midst of their third homestand this season, and they've been victorious in six of their eight outings in Nashville thus far. The latest triumph came Tuesday night when Pekka Rinne and the Predators blanked the Chicago Blackhawks, 3-0. Nick Bonino recorded his third-career hat trick in the contest as Rinne posted back-to-back shutouts for the first time since winter of 2018. Nashville has only allowed three goals in their last four games, and as their offense continues to produce, their defensive efforts have been on the upswing too.
Rinne's shutout was the 57th of his career, good enough to move him into a tie for 20th all-time in shutouts in NHL history. The Predators also recorded 51 shots on goal on Tuesday against the Hawks, a number that's tied for their third-most in a game in franchise history. Defensemen Roman Josi and Ryan Ellis co-lead the Predators with 13 points apiece, followed by Duchene with 11 points, and then Bonino and Ryan Johansen with 10 each. Bonino's six goals lead the club, followed by Josi, Forsberg and Viktor Arvidsson with five apiece.

Johnny Gaudreau leads the Flames with 11 points, followed by Elias Lindholm and Matthew Tkachuk with 10 points each.
It really wasn't a major fix. It was more of a quick fix and the realization that we have to do the right things defensively. When we do, we support our goaltenders the right way and we can play a good defensive game. "Matt Duchene was back in the Nashville lineup on Tuesday after missing Saturday's game with a lower-body injury.
