NASHVILLE, Tennessee (Ticker) -- Tomas Vokoun eyes another victim Saturday when he leads the Nashville Predators into a matchup with the Calgary Flames.

The best team at home in the Western Conference, the Predators have opened a four-game homestand with back-to-back shutouts, both with Vokoun in net.

The 29-year-old netminder made 31 saves in a 5-0 rout of Vancouver on Tuesday and followed it by stopping all 24 shots he faced in Thursday's 2-0 victory over Phoenix.

Vokoun, who is 24-6-1 at home, has recorded all of his career-high four shutouts this season at the Gaylord Entertainment Center.

Darcy Hordichuk and Adam Hall gave Vokoun all he needed in Thursday's win as Nashville kept pace with first-place Detroit in the Central Division. The Predators trail the Red Wings by nine points with 16 games to play, three of which are between the two clubs.

The third-lowest scoring team in the NHL, Calgary may present another opportunity for Vokoun. However, it still holds the top spot in the Northwest Division with a two-point lead on Colorado.

The Flames opened a critical, season-high seven-game road trip with a 3-2 overtime loss at Edmonton on Thursday. Matthew Lombardi and Mike Leclerc scored to give Calgary a 2-1 lead midway through the second period.

Nashville has won the first three meetings between the teams this season, including a 3-2 triumph in Calgary on March 7. Playing in his fourth game since returning from a knee injury that robbed him of nearly three months of action, David Legwand scored twice and Vokoun made 30 saves to lead the Predators.
