false
The National Hockey League released the 2007-08 regular-season schedule today and the Nashville Predators will open their 10th NHL season by hosting the Colorado Avalanche on Thursday, October 4 at the Sommet Center.  The Predators’ schedule also includes 14 Saturday home games at the Sommet Center and 17 Thursday night contests. (Click here to view the Predators' full 2007-08 season schedule.)

While this coming season marks the sixth time Nashville will open its schedule on home ice, the Predators will play nine of their first 15 games and 14 of their first 25 contests on the road. The Predators play nine times at the Sommet Center in February and seven times each in the months of December and January.

For the third straight season, the NHL schedule emphasizes divisional rivalries as the Predators will face their Central Division foes – the Chicago Blackhawks, Columbus Blue Jackets, Detroit Red Wings and St. Louis Blues – a total of eight times each, including four tilts vs. each opponent at the Sommet Center.

Nashville’s 82-game schedule features four games against the other teams in its conference and 10 games vs. teams from the Eastern Conference’s Southeast and Northeast Divisions. In the Eastern Conference, Nashville will play the five Southeast Division teams (Atlanta, Carolina, Florida, Tampa Bay and Washington) at home, and the five Northeast Division teams (Boston, Buffalo, Montreal, Ottawa and Toronto) on the road.

The Predators will host the 2007 Stanley Cup Champion Anaheim Ducks on December 8 and January 17 at the Sommet Center and will face the Ducks on the road on October 17 and January 7. Nashville’s 2006 and 2007 playoff opponent, the San Jose Sharks, will return to the Sommet Center on December 29 and March 11. The 2007 Central Division champion Detroit Red Wings will come to Nashville a total of four times: November 22, December 10, February 12 and March 20.

Former Nashville goaltender Tomas Vokoun will make his return to Music City with the Florida Panthers on Saturday, October 27. On November 17, Paul Kariya and the St. Louis Blues will play their first of four games at the Sommet Center this season. 2006 Calder Trophy winner Alex Ovechkin will make his first-ever visit to Nashville when the Predators host the Washington Capitals on Tuesday, March 18.

Nashville will be busy around the holidays at home this season. The Predators will play Detroit on Thanksgiving night (November 22), St. Louis on Martin Luther King Jr. Day (Monday, January 21) and Chicago on Valentine’s Day (February 14).

There are 17 home games scheduled on Thursdays, 14 on Saturdays, seven on Tuesdays, two on Mondays, one on Sundays and none on Wednesday and Friday. The Predators play 12 sets of back-to-back games this season.

The 2008 NHL All-Star festivities will take place in Atlanta on Saturday, January 26 and Sunday, January 27.

Face-off for all Predators home contests will be at 7:00 p.m. (Central time).  The only exceptions include a 5:00 p.m. face-off on Monday, January 21 (vs. St. Louis) and a 2:00 p.m. start on Saturday, March 22 (vs. Chicago).

Nashville Predators season tickets are now available.  Information on ticket availability for individual games will be announced at a later date.  For more information on ticket sales, please call (615) 770-PUCK (7825).
