When the Nashville Predators played the Anaheim Ducks in Southern California on Saturday, winger Patric Hornqvist had a rough night. He was getting hammered along the boards throughout the contest, he took a Shea Weber slapshot to the inner thigh and then, early in the third period, Ducks center Ryan Getzlaf fell on his left leg while fighting for a puck in the corner (our friends over at On The Forecheck have a great picture of the incident).
Per Josh Cooper of The Tennessean, Nashville’s leading goal scorer last year is “out for the rest of this trip. And maybe longer.”
It’s our experience that when Head Coach Barry Trotz puts a timetable on an injury, it’s usually an optimistic view.
The Predators are 0-1-3 so far this year. With a compacted schedule and a truncated season, there’s no time to “work out the kinks.” That being said, if Hornqvist is going to be out for any length of time, they’ll need to make a move. General Manager David Poile isn’t one for knee-jerk reac...

Nashville Predators wing Patric Hornqvist will be sidelined indefinitely after suffering a lower-body injury in Saturday night's game at Anaheim, Predators coach Barry Trotz told the Tennessean. "He's a big part of what we do," Trotz said, according to the Tennessean. "He's a great guy who brings a lot of energy. He's as hard as they come. He'...
Preds F Patric Hornqvist has returned to Nashville to be evaluated for a leg injury suffered during a stretch where he was hit in the upper thigh by a Shea Weber shot from the point, then had an awkward collision along the boards with Ducks F Ryan Getzlaf on Saturday night in Anaheim. Both incidents sent the gritty forward to ...
The Phoenix Coyotes' stunning success last season included their first appearance in the Western Conference finals, and that came at the expense of the Nashville Predators.
Neither team has played at that level since returning from the lockout, and now the Predators are without Patric Hornqvist.
In their first meeting since facing off in the playoffs, the Coyotes and Predators...
Both teams were coming off embarrassing losses. The Anaheim Ducks got blasted by the Vancouver Canucks, 5-0, on Friday night and the Nashville Predators looked like a minor league squad against the St. Louis Blues, losing 3-0, on Thursday. Something had to give.
In front of 17,174 at Honda Center, the Ducks used the shootout to down the Preds, 3-2.
Nashville went to a shootout in...
By: Miranda Martin Miranda@PredneckNation.com When the Nashville Predators played the Phoenix Coyotes for the first time this year Tuesday night, some Preds fans on twitter seemed to have one thing on their mind. It had nothing to do with the fact that the Predators have won only a single game this season. It wasn’t the significant lack of offense that’s ...

Nashville, Tenn. (January 29, 2013) – The National Hockey League’s Nashville Predators and the team’s exclusive regional television partner FOX Sports Tennessee, along with sister station SportSouth, today announced a new long-term television rights agreement. Financial terms were not disclosed...
This is a great long term deal for the Nashville Predators to expose their hockey to most of the southeast. Fox Sports has done a good job in their broadcasts of the Predators' games, but one thing they should look towards is a studio report during the intermissions, similar to the Phoenix Coyotes. Just let Pete Weber and Terry Crisp call the games and during the intermissions...

from Dirk Hoag of On The Forecheck,
First, Hornqvist took a Shea Weber shot off his right thigh, which left him hobbling off to the bench for repairs. Signs were hopeful at that time, as he made it back out for another shift, but a Ducks player then fell into Hornqvist's left leg in the corner of the Anaheim zone, causing that knee to buckle at an unnatural angle....

No matter what was said in the locker room after last night’s demoralizing 4-0 loss to the struggling Phoenix Coyotes, the actuality of the situation is very straightforward. Nashville’s offense, while potent last season and not without the ability to score, has stumbled out of the starting gate to begin this condensed season.

Nashville would take a lead twice, give it up twice, head to their third shootout, and grab their third shootout loss, losing to Anaheim 3-2 on a Corey Perry shootout goal. The Predators now are 1-1-3 on the season, 1-1-1 on the current road trip, and will be at Phoenix on Monday night for the fourth game of the seven game roadtrip.
