The Nashville Predators stayed red-hot Tuesday night, blowing out the San Jose Sharks 8-2 and tying the franchise record for consecutive games with a point (15).

Thirteen Predators skaters tallied at least one point, while Filip Forsberg (3), Kiefer Sherwood (3), Roman Josi (3), Ryan McDonagh (3), Mark Jankowski (2) and Michael McCarron (2) all logged multi-point games.

McCarron (2), Josi, Forsberg, Jankowski, Luke Evangelista, Tommy Novak and Jason Zucker all scored goals while McDonagh (+6), Josi (+4), Sherwood (+3) and Luke Schenn (+3) were the team’s plus/minus leaders.

Goaltender Juuse Saros stopped 18 of the 20 shots he faced and won his third straight starts and earned his 10th win in his last 12 games. Saros also has a .900 save percentage or better in 10 of his last 12 starts as well.

Former Predator Mikael Granlund scored one of San Jose’s two goals but finished with a -3 rating.
