A 17-Day Road Trip For The Predators

from Greg Progue of FoxSports Tennessee,

As the Nashville Predators embark on the longest road trip in franchise history, inquiring minds want to know …

How do you pack for a 17-day excursion for seven road games against Phoenix, Los Angeles, Colorado, Winnipeg, New Jersey, the New York Islanders and Pittsburgh in that order before returning home Nov. 16 to play Chicago?

That's four time zones, two countries and roughly 5,000 aeronautical miles.

"Two suits, two shirts, three ties and a bunch of socks and underwear and a pair of jeans," Predators veteran forward Mike Fisher said matter-of-factly about what he packed before heading out Wednesday on the longest road trip of a career that includes nearly 11 years with Ottawa and three-plus seasons as a Predator.

Predators head coach Barry Trotz said that he has been on longer trips while playing and coaching in the minor leagues, but none as the only coach the Predators have had since their inaugural 1998-99 season.
