Off of a great game in San Jose, Preds fans cautiously looked forward to tonights game hoping that the team could gain some momentum and maintain some form. But no one, not even the most aggressive optimist, could have predicted the gift we received tonight. The Predators we're hot. Like really hot. They scored 5 goals on 12 shots and chased Elliott in the process. Although they tripped up a bit towards the end of the second, they finished with a convincing 6-1 win, and sent a division rival away with a bitter taste in their mouth.
Tonight, the team made watching Predators hockey enjoyable again.
The Predators kicked the game off to, arguably, one of the best starts in Franchise history. Ellis bagged a goal early, his second of the season. Richard Clune is slowly making me eat my words from earlier this season, as he got a gritty goal to put the Preds up 2-0 - his first career NHL goal by the way (congrats). And to make s...

Who says the Nashville Predators don’t have an offense?
In front of 15,206 at Scottrade Center, the Predators caught fire, beating the Blues 6-1. The win gave Nashville points in five of the seven games on their road trip.
Nashville netminder Pekka Rinne collected 31 saves, including 14 in each of the final two periods, for the victory. He is now 3-2-3 on the year.

The Predators are slowly coming up the ranks in scoring with a shelling of the St. Louis Blues that saw Erat and Wilson have three point nights. Rinne has been solid between the pipes allowing only 3 goals in his last three games. Ryan Ellis has come through as the power-play specialist he was drafted and developed to become.
But what about...
Here are your “Leftgovers” from the Nashville Predators game on Tuesday night against the St. Louis Blues…
* Martin Erat returned to the Nashville lineup after missing the San Jose game with an injury sustained in practice.
* He would garner second star honors after posting three points.

As you probably do not know, the reason for my lack of posting and in person presence around the Predators' rink this year is that I will be undergoing a full hip replacement this coming Thursday which will require a six week period of no driving or public appearances. Therefore, I am limited to comments from the couch for the time being.In spite of my infirmary, I was able to...
My 3 stars of the game
1. Colin Wilson, NSH. 3 assists, and generally gave the Blues fits. Also reminds me of why I had him ranked #4 on my draft list that year behind Stamkos, Doughty, and Pietrangelo.
2. Martin Erat, NSH. Goal, 2 assists (which means he got 75% of the points he had season-to-date coming into tonight), just generally hovering around the net, â¦ solid...
Six goals, three in one period. That is what it took to finally break out of the goal scoring funk the Nashville Predators have been in. In one game the team added a full half goal to their goals per game average and got off the bottom of the league standings in goal scoring.
St. Louis was coming off of a three day layoff and it showed. They came out a tad flat and Nashville...
Say one thing for this Predators team, they pick the strangest places in the NHL to get well in. Bloodied, broken and bleeding, threatening to fall into the kind of hole it would be near impossible to crawl out of, the Nashville Predators pulled off a couple of dramatic victories in California, fixing their shootout woes and applying a much needed injection of confidence.
On their recent 7-game western swing, the Predators came away with a 4-2-1 record...

The Nashville Predators were in the midst of a long road trip and had only one victory when they faced the Los Angeles Kings exactly one week ago.
Things have changed for the better since.
Back home after a lengthy stay on the road, Nashville seeks a fourth straight victory and second win in eight days over Los Angeles on Thursday night.

By: Miranda Martin Miranda@PredneckNation.com @lovelyminda After the Nashville Predators dominated the St. Louis Blues 6-1 last night, it was obvious that the offense had found something that clicked and worked like a charm, and a major part of it may have been the defense. The first goal of the night was a quick wrist shot from Ryan Ellis, who found ...

The Nashville Predators kicked off their current 3-game win streak with a 2-1 eight-round shootout win against the Los Angeles Kings on January 31st. Since then, Nashville dispatched the Sharks with the same 2-1 shootout result and let loose a torrent of scoring against the St. Louis Blues 6-1 handing them their first home loss of the year.

For the third time in just over two weeks, the Predators and Blues square off again in the last game of a franchise-tying longest road trip for Nashville. The Blues have owned Nashville so far this season winning both games; one home, one away. Game time is at 7 p.m central and can be heard on 102.5 the Game locally and seen in sparkling High...
With five of the first eight games going to a shootout, it got us thinking: what are the top shootout moments in Predators history?
