Shea Weber and Cody Franson grew up on the same street and today they will be on the same ice again.

While Weber hopes to lead the Predators to their third consecutive victory when Nashville plays Toronto at Bridgestone Arena, former Predator Franson is looking for more playing time with the Maple Leafs.

Weber is trying to help his old friend and fellow defenseman keep his spirits up.

"I try to be as positive as I can with him about playing," Weber said. "He will figure it out."
