Predators' Challenge: Do Something With Home Ice

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The Nashville Predators finally have finished ahead of Detroit for the first time as a franchise. Now the Predators' challenge is doing something with home-ice advantage.

The Predators finished fourth in the Western Conference for the third time in seven playoff berths. They open the postseason Wednesday night against the Red Wings -- the Central Division foe they've measured themselves against since their first season in 1998-99. So maybe it's only appropriate the Predators start this postseason against Detroit in the first step of what they hope is a deep run.

Defenseman Ryan Suter says they are excited and feel they have a good chance to do something special if everyone gets on the same page.

Nashville lost to San Jose in 2006 and 2007 as the No. 4 seed.
