One of the highlights of Saturday night's 4-2 victory by the Nashville Predators over the Philadelphia Flyers came early in the second period when the Flyer's Wayne Simmonds tried to make a move past Predators rookie, Ryan Ellis and Ellis delivered one of the more dramatic hip checks ever seen in Bridgestone Arena.After the game, Ellis described the play. "It was kind...
NASHVILLE – The Nashville Predators never feel like they are out of a game. It may sound cliché, but if the first half of their season proved anything, it’s that the Preds are capable of winning no matter what kind of deficit they face.This season, the Preds have made five comebacks in 17 instances when trailing after the second period, good for the highest percentage in the...
Early in the third period with the Nashville Predators leading 2-1, Pekka Rinne made a double save on a two on one breakaway that could have been a turning point in the game had the Philadelphia Flyers been able to convert and tie the contest.The play began when Shea Weber lost the puck in the neutral zone to Claude Giroux who took off on a breakaway with Max Talbot with Ryan Suter...
The Nashville Predators are on the road for a matinee matchup with the New York Islanders. The Predators have only three afternoon starts scheduled this season, winning the first back in October. The team historically does very well in matinees, since 2003 Nashville has earned points in 80% of these games going 21-7-7. Today is the first of a back-to-back against New York City teams...
Uniondale, NY -- Evgeni Nabokov secured his 300th career win on an already special night when the Islanders organization inducted Pat Flatley into the team’s hall of fame. Michael Grabner scored the go ahead goal at the 16:57 of the third period and then secured the win scoring on an empty net.
“I guess it’s nice to have it in the pocket,” Nabokov said after the game about...

The Predators complete the back-to-back turn tonight at MSG against the New York Rangers. The Predators dominated the first period in their win against the NY Islanders and came away with a 3-1 victory and extending the win streak to five.
The Rangers are on a tear winning 6 out of the last 8 but only 1-2-0 in the last three games...
I stayed away from the computer last night. I was that disappointed in the outcome of that game against Nashville.
While I agree with Jack Capuano, they played hard for forty minutes, I'd like to know what they were doing for the first twenty. Also there seems to be a disconnect between what Capuano thought was the problem and what PA Parenteau thought.
I was SO disgusted...
Evgeni Nabokov earned his 300th NHL win after Michael Grabner scored the go-ahead goal with three minutes left, and the New York Islanders beat the Buffalo Sabres 4-2 on Saturday night. Grabner's 12th goal of the season, on a rebound in front in goalie Jhonas Enroth, gave the Islanders (16-20-6) their fourth win in five home games.
Evgeni Nabokov’s first career NHL start was nearly perfect. On Jan. 19, 2000, the rookie goaltender from Kazakhstan stopped 39 shots for a shutout-tie against the Colorado Avala...
Like we've seen so many times this season, the Rangers delivered exactly what the doctor ordered following a rough loss on Sunday when they defeated the Nashville Predators, 3-0, this evening at Madison Square Garden. From top-to-bottom, the Blueshirts' entire lineup contributed to tonight's win with great forechecking, solid defensive play, and in Lundqvist's case...
