Another night, another very similar result for the Predators. Patric Hornqvist’s 3 point night went all for naught as Steen and Oshie would score in the shootout to give the St. Louis Blues a 4-3 shootout victory over the Nashville Predators in front of another sellout crowd at Bridgestone Arena.
“Of course it’s good to get points,” said Predators forward Patric Hornqvist. “There is only 48 games this season and all points are important.”
Hornqvist, who now leads the Predators in points for the early season, netted his 9th career multi-point game for Nashville. While the final score wasn’t what the Predators had envisioned, it’s clear that the team is in a much better direction after Saturday’s sloppy shootout-loss to the Blue Jackets.
“I thought it was a way better game from our standpoint tonight,” said Hornqvist. “We played quick and we played Predator hockey out there today and it felt good too.
Nashville is the only team in the NHL right now t

During training camp last week, we sat down with Nashville Predators prospect Zoltan Hetenyi. The Hungarian goaltender was invited to Development Camp last summer and impressed the brass. As a result, he was offered a one-year contract within the organization. He’s been playing with the Predators’ ECHL affiliate, the Cincinnati Cyclones, ever since.

The Predators are two games into the 2012-13 season, and have dropped both contests in a shootout to division foes.
Leading 3-2 in the third period, Nashville allowed the St. Louis Blues to tie the game with just under 8 minutes remaining in regulation.
Despite the frustrating loss, Predators forward Mike Fisher saw a silver lining.
“It was a battle all game going back and forth...
There's not too many comments from the couch tonight, primarily due the the scheduling of a 5 p.m. start on a day when everyone in the Mid-state area that doesn't work for the government or a bank was either at work or heading out into rush hour traffic for the puck drop.I find it totally incredible that for the second game in a row that Bridgestone Arena had a sellout...

Now more than ever is the time to have a good back-up goaltender.
In this very short and very busy season, every NHL team is facing back-to-back games, generally with travel between. While this is very trying on every player, it is especially tiresome on a goalie. In a traditional 82-game season, it is generally acceptable for each...
Martin Erat scored an unassisted goal for Nashville with 8:15 left when Minnesota goalie Niklas Backstrom couldn't clear the puck cleanly, and the Predators earned their first victory by beating the Wild 3-1 on Tuesday night.
Ryan Spaling had a goal late in the first period, and Chris Mason made 29 saves for the Predators in his first start of the season. He denied Dany Heatley...
Another shootout loss goes in the books for the Nashville Predators as two games into the season, they have lost in the shootout twice. The St. Louis Blues get another win as Vladimir Tarasenko shows his skills to the city of Nashville. It was a much better played game by the Predators as the rust and sloppiness is now out of the equation. “Today was a man’s game, Saturday was...
I used to frequent a wide variety of message boards back in the day, one of the best was good ol' Fanhome. Fanhome was a site that had mini-message boards for all 30 of the league's teams and each board had a tight knit group of posters and some forums were more friendly than others. One team I must admit I have a weakness for is the Nashville Predators. I guess when...
IN ORDER TO WIN
NASHVILLE: The first period. The Predators don’t necessarily need to score early but they need to keep the Blues from scoring early. Pekka Rinne played well against the Columbus Blue Jackets on Saturday night but was forced to settle for a shootout loss. If he can continue that strong play, Nashville should have no problem skating with their opponents tonight....

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) The St. Louis Blues have shown already that they can blow out a team. Now they've proven they can come back, even if it means winning in a shootout.
T.J. Oshie and Alex Steen scored in the shootout, and the St. Louis Blues edged the Nashville Predators 4-3 on Monday night.

The Preds snuck past the Minnesota Wild and Ryan Suter to get their first win of the 2013 abbreviated season. With goals by Spaling and Erat, Nashville competed all game but never looked like the best team on the ice. They had trouble handling Minnesota's top two lines and, in true Predators form, struggled to set up offensively. But none the less, the Preds avoided overtime...
Despite dropping their second consecutive game by way of a shootout to start the condensed 48-game season, the Nashville Predators have lots of reason to be optimistic for the next(More here)…
