Avalanche RW Steve Downie lays out Predators defenseman Roman Josi (Video)

Colorado Avalanche right winger Steve Downie laid out Nashville Predators defenseman Roman Josi with a huge flying hit during the second period of Friday night's game at the Pepsi Center. Downie was penalized two minutes for charging, and Predators defenseman Shea Weber, who jumped Downie to stick up for Josi, was penalized for roughing. Josi was OK after the hit. The...

VIDEO: Steve Downie launches himself at Roman Josi

In the second period, Colorado Avalanche forward Steve Downie leveled Nashville Predators defenseman Roman Josi. Downie has a history and Josi did not return. All things considered, is it suspension worthy? You be the judge. The video is below.

Steve Downie Obliterates Roman Josi, Somehow Gets Away With It

After seeing Steve Downie leap into Roman Josi’s head last night, Hockeydom was awaiting word that Downie was going to be suspended. We were wrong. Despite Josi being injured on the play, as well as the hit being illegal, Downie won’t be suspended. No hearing over Steve Downie hit. — Kevin Allen (@ByKevinAllen) October 5, 2013 Ask any NHL fan to sum...

Tonight officially puts last season in the past for Predators

It cannot be denied. Even the biggest Nashville Predators homer has to accept the fact that last year was an absolute nightmare. A team that had made the playoffs seven of the previous eight seasons (and, the one time they didn’t, were in it until the final days) expects nothing less than a competitive team. Instead, the Predators were everything but. They tied for the fewest...

Paul McCann: Losing Josi and Suspending Downie

Two games, two losses and the questions are already coming after season starting back-to-back divisional losses in St. Louis and Colorado. The worst part of last night’s 3-1 loss to Colorado may be the loss of Roman Josi on an extremely questionable hit from repeat offender Steve Downie. Judge for yourself… Now I know I’m looking at this hit through gold...

It took Patrick Roy one game to absolutely lose it behind the bench

Hall of Fame NHL goaltender and new Colorado Avalanche head coach Patrick Roy has a reputation for being hot-tempered and a little bit of a crazy guy, and it didn’t take long for that characteristic to shine through behind the bench. Roy celebrated his first career NHL game as a coach by nearly killing Anaheim head coach Bruce Boudreau with the glass partition in between the two...

Paul McCann: Game Night in St. Louis

It’s game night in St. Louis as the Nashville Predators open the 2013-2014 season at Scottrade Center. Nashville has eight new players on the roster this season and a new face behind the bench as former Team USA coach Phil Housley joins the team as an assistant coach. The former first round pick holds numerous NHL records, including most points by an American-born defenseman...

Colorado Avalanche 3 – Nashville Predators 1 | POSTGAME BREAKDOWN

Highlights — Notes One night after being pulled in the first half of the first period, Pekka Rinne went the distance on Friday night.

For his efforts, the Colorado media awarded him the second star of the game. Paul Gaustad...

GARTH'S CORNER: Royt The.....

Welcome back to the NHL, Patrick Roy! When the Avs hired the Hall Of Famer in June, he promised to do whatever it takes to restore the glory, honor, and pride to the Colorado Avalanche brand. Boy, has he ever! With the first pick in the NHL draft last June, Roy selected sniper, Nathan MacKinnon from the Memorial Cup champion Halifax Moosesheads. With that move, the Roy Era was off a...
