Predators face Oilers with seven-game win streak

Once described as a professional sourpuss, Nashville Predators coach Peter Laviolette does have a well-hidden sense of humor.

It came out minutes after Nashville polished off a 3-0 shutout Saturday night in Edmonton for a sweep of its weekend road trip through Alberta. When he emerged from the locker room for his post-game scrum with the media, Laviolette did so with a bull's head over his cranium, paying off a bet he made with his players.

"Good on him to hold up his end of the bet," Predators defenseman P.K. Subban said. "For us as a team, it's an 82-game season and it can be a long season. When you're coming on the road with a back-to-back and a 5-1-0 record, it's a little extra motivation and we're having some fun, but good on him."
