NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- The Predators typically experience their own version of March Madness, having to scramble for their postseason lives with plenty of home games in the month to help them grab points.

Not this year.

The Predators sit comfortably in fifth in the Western Conference. And this year the question isn't whether they'll get into the playoffs, but can they push Detroit and St. Louis for the top the Central Division or at least grab home-ice advantage by finishing fourth.

Any push for positioning will come on the road. The Predators wrap up a three-game home stand Saturday night against Detroit, then hit the road while the NCAA tournament occupies their arena. Nine of their last 15 games are on the road.
