Nashville Predators coach Barry Trotz has said that almost as soon as his team was eliminated in the second round of last year's playoffs, he realized how close his team was.
The Predators scored 11 goals in the series; Vancouver scored 13 on Nashville goalie Pekka Rinne a two-goal differential over six games between advancing and elimination. Vancouver, of course, went on...
Jimmy Howard will start for the Red Wings tonight when they play the Nashville Predators at Joe Louis Arena.
A groin injury has kept Howard out the last four game. It's the second time in the last two months he's had groin problems.
"Everything seems to be okay," coach Mike Babcock said after Friday's morning skate. "He (Howard) says he's feeling...

from Drew Sharp of the Detroit Free Press, Home ice doesn’t mean as much in the Stanley Cup playoffs as home court does in the NBA playoffs. It’s more important that the Wings utilize their final games to get as healthy as possible and work the wounded—Pavel Datsyuk, Nicklas Lidstrom, Johan Franzen and Howard, who has nursed a temperamental groin for a month—back into a smooth...
The Nashville Predators announced Monday that 2012 Stanley Cup Playoff tickets go on sale this Saturday at 10:00 AM Central Time. Tickets should be sold out very quickly, so you should try to buy tickets on Ticketmaster that day, or go to the tickets tab above. The tab will direct you to the best deals possible. It is still unknown who the Predators will play in the playoffs, but...
My favorite TV show of all time, the Liam Lynch sock puppet spectacular that was Sifl n Olly, had a fake infomercial skit, and the tagline for Precious Roy’s cheap product of the night was, “Well, you know the problems I’ve had with X” by Sifl, answered with, “Yeah, you’ve got some serious-ass X problems!” from Olly.
The Detroit Red Wings ended a lost month’s worth...
Welcome Detroit Red Wings and Nashville Predators fans to the signature story on Fang Faction, 'How to Beat the Goalie.' This is edition thirteen since this has started. It has been a good while since this story has been made to "scout" the other team, but that is stopping tonight.The Nashville Predators take on a injured, Detroit Red Wings team, Friday night. The...
When this team is on, they are amazing. When they are off, it's ugly. Not many good things to mention after a game like this, so I won't bother trying.Recap after the jump:
Conklin made no big saves tonight and the defense in front of him hung him out to dry a few times. He got beat by a bad bounce, two breakaways and a 2 on 1. I'm pissed that the 2 on 1 goal went...
from David Shoalts of the Globe and Mail, ...Actually, Detroit Red Wings GM Ken Holland, who most of you will agree knows a thing or two about winning a Stanley Cup, believes it should be 10 years before a general manager should be judged.
His argument is that’s how long it takes to change the culture of an organization after you take over. General managers cannot simply show...
In November I first picked Shea Weber as the Norris Trophy leader. When Weber lost a bit of time with a concussion my new pick was Zdeno Chara. By early February I had Weber back in the lead. Now that we are into the stretch drive of the season, I think Chara is back in the lead.
Zdeno Chara has the top +/- rating among all defencemen in the NHL at +29. His 49 points...
Paul in for George…
Well, the coach may have a change of heart… Coach Mike Babcock is reconsidering who he’s going to start in net Friday when the Detroit Red Wings host the Nashville Predators in a game likely to determine who’ll finish fourth in the Western Conference.
Babcock had decided on backup Ty Conklin as of Tuesday, but Howard is ready to return from a groin injury...

The Nashville Predators and Detroit Red Wings went into tonight’s game with a chip on their shoulders. Both were outgunned in their last outing and looking for some revenge, especially against the team that is in the mix of playoff home-ice positioning. But it was the Nashville Predators that would come out of Motown with the two points...
