Following its start at home, Nashville hits the road for 11-of-14 from Oct. 23-Nov. 22 which includes a five and a four-game road trip. The Predators longest stint away from home will come from Jan. 16-26 when they play their final six games before the NHL All-Star break out west. 2011 All-Star Weekend will be Jan. 29-30 at the RBC Center in Raleigh, N.C.

This season, the Preds three “wild card” opponents from the Eastern Conference, who they will play both home and away contests against, are Southeastern Division foes Atlanta, Florida and Carolina. Nashville’s six other home games against Eastern teams are highlighted by two of the League’s biggest stars coming to town in the first two weeks of the season. In game No. 4 of the season on Oct. 16, two-time Hart and Art Ross Trophy winner Alexander Ovechkin leads the defending President’s Trophy-winning Washington Capitals to town, and five days later (Oct. 21), Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin and the 2009 Stanley Cup Champion Pittsburgh Penguins invade the Music City. The Predators will also receive visits from the New York Rangers (Nov. 27), the New York Islanders (Dec. 13), Ottawa Senators (Dec. 23) and Boston Bruins (March 17).

The 2010-11 schedule is also highlighted by both the 2010 Stanley Cup Champion Chicago Blackhawks, and the rival Detroit Red Wings paying three visits to Nashville. The Hawks come to town on Nov. 13, Jan. 15 and Feb. 24, while the Wings visit Feb. 5, March 19 and April 2. The Predators will close out the 2010-11 campaign on the road for the fourth time in five seasons, playing at the Scottrade Center in St. Louis on April 9.

The Predators schedule includes 13 sets of back-to-back games. The club’s longest homestand is five games between March 10-19, while its longest stretch on the road comes Jan. 16-26, when it heads out on a six-game trip.

Face-off for all Predators home contests will be at 7:00 p.m. (Central time), with the two exceptions being a 5 p.m. start on Sunday, Jan. 2 (vs. Columbus) and a pair of 2:00 p.m. face-offs on Sunday, Feb. 27 (vs. Columbus) and Saturday, April 2 (vs. Detroit).

The Predators will continue to offer a variety of single game promotions and themed nights during the 2010-11 season. All Tuesday night games will continue to be sponsored by Daily’s convenience stores and offer discounted tickets and concessions throughout the season. The two Monday home games will be “Military Mondays,” all Thursday night games will be “College Nights,” and six weekend dates will be McDonald’s “Family Four Pack” games. The Predators will continue the “Fellowship Night” series, offering five fellowship nights throughout the season.
