Michael McCarron notched two goals, while Roman Josi and Filip Forsberg contributed a goal and two assists each as the Nashville Predators surged in the third period to secure an 8-2 victory over the San Jose Sharks on Tuesday night, extending their point streak to a franchise-record-tying 15 games.

Joining the scoring fray were Jason Zucker, Luke Evangelista, Mark Jankowski, and Tommy Novak, while Juuse Saros stood firm with 18 saves in goal for Nashville, which maintains an impressive 13-0-2 record over its last 15 games. Kiefer Sherwood and Ryan McDonagh both notched three assists in the Predators’ dominant performance. This streak equals the impressive run Nashville had between February 19 and March 19, 2018.

“I’m proud of the group,” remarked Nashville coach Andrew Brunette. “It wasn’t going to be easy, but we dug in a little bit deeper, and we found our game.”

Despite San Jose’s efforts, with Mario Ferraro and Mikael Granlund finding the net, the Sharks struggled to match Nashville’s intensity, extending their tough stretch to 1-12-2 over the last 15 games.

“It was 4-2 with 10 minutes to go, and you think all you need is to get one, and it’s a game,” expressed San Jose coach David Quinn. “Then we give up four goals in the last 10 minutes and that’s disappointing. Disappointing.”

Josi set the tone early with the game’s first goal, firing home a one-timer off a pass from Ryan McDonagh during an offensive zone faceoff win. Granlund countered for the Sharks late in the first period, but Ferraro’s goal in the second briefly gave San Jose the lead.

However, Nashville quickly responded with goals from Zucker and McCarron, reclaiming control of the game. Evangelista’s goal late in the second period added to their advantage, setting the stage for McCarron’s second goal and late-period strikes from Jankowski, Forsberg, and Novak to seal the emphatic win for the Predators.
