Preds' Weber among NHL's best blueliners

Awards are won over the length of a season -- not in a single night -- but nonetheless it's possible that Nashville Predators defenseman Shea Weber might have had a watershed moment on Thursday.

Eric Engels: On a Limb: Flyers Will Get Shea Weber and Go for the Cup

1) Shocker. The Canadiens failed to win at the Bell Centre once again. Not that they didn't try, but man, whether it's failing to capture a lead, or failing to hold onto one, not much to celebrate around these parts. 2) Which is why the ovation for Louis Leblanc for depositing his first National Hockey League goal was such a breath of fresh air. Granted, it was a dumpy...

'Great' Wings effort goes to waste vs. Preds

In a matter of minutes, Predators captain Shea Weber rendered moot as good a road game as the Red Wings have played all season.

Red Wings-Predators quick take: smart hockey versus a dumb puck

The Detroit Red Wings let ‘em up off the mat, plain and simple. Absolutely dominating in terms of shots, puck possession, intensity and effort, the Red Wings were all too willing, all game long, to indulge the Nashville Predators’ cycle, and it bit Detroit to the expense of two points, losing 4-3 to Nashville in what was just a weird game. Shea Weber’s screened shot on the...

Preds don’t get a single power play, win anyway…

While the result wasn’t, one thing was clear coming into Saturday night’s game between the Nashville Predators and St. Louis Blues. The winner would have the longest win streak in the Western Conference. After their 2-1 shootout victory, that distinction is officially held by the Preds.
