JAMES NEAL RUMORS & GOSSIP

Predators top Capitals for 5th straight win, spoiling Trotz's return

  James Neal scored twice and the surging Predators spoiled coach Barry Trotz's return to Nashville, beating the Washington Capitals 4-3 on Friday night for their fifth straight victory. Seth Jones and Mattias Ekholm had the other goals for the Predators, who fired Trotz at the end of last season. Trotz was the team's inaugural coach, leading Nashville through its first 15 NHL seasons...

Predators 5 – Blue Jackets 1

Optimistic Thoughts: James Neal was inserted back in the lineup after missing the last game with an illness, but interestingly didn’t return to his normal position on the first line. That was taken by Craig Smith who played spectacular in Neal’s absence and continued his strong play with another two goals tonight against the Blue Jackets. Victor Bartley has grown exponentially...

Nashville Predators 5 – Arizona Coyotes 1

Optimistic Thoughts: The drought is over! The Predators finally put up a goal (basically two) with the man advantage on their first two opportunities in the first after going down a goal. Nashville controlled the play, and James Neal looks rejuvenated after breaking through in the goal column with an empty netter last game. Neal was arguably the best player on the ice with his elite...

James Neal Might Get Suspended Again

I think it's safe to say that it might end up being a rough week for Pittsburgh Penguins' winger James Neal. First, Neal had an outside shot to replace Steven Stamkos on Team Canada for the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics. He was not chosen...Martin St. Louis was. Not a big surprise, but obviously still a let down for Neal and Pens fans. Go ahead, read the rest »

Team Canada: the case for James Neal

When Hockey Canada announces it’s roster for the upcoming 2014 Olympics in Sochi on January 7th, Penguins forward James Neal will most likely not be on it. But he should be. Neal, along with fellow teammate Chris Kunitz, are both considered  bubble players to make Team Canada, which boasts a  stacked roster, especially at forward, and many perceive Neal to largely be the beneficiary...

Pittsburgh Penguins: Mid-season report card

James Neal has emerged as an elite goal scorer once again. Tuesday’s Penguins game vs. the New Jersey Devils was Pittsburgh’s 41st of the season, the exact halfway point of the 2013-2014 season, and what better way to commemorate the mid-season mark than with a mid-season report card. Where they stand: With a 29-12-1 record, the Penguins sit atop the Eastern Conference as well...
