Nashville Has Finally Found Way To Silence Blackhawks Fans During National Anthem, Sort Of

It only took the Nashville Predators three seasons to answer the question that every person on the planet with half a brain would have figured out in 30 seconds. “How do we deter Blackhawks fans from cheering during the National Anthem?” they asked.

Is Pekka Rinne the Best Goalie in the NHL Playoffs?

View image | The NHL playoffs begin this week.  I figured it’d be a good idea for TopSportsReport to have rankings to help fans understand the playoffs better, make their predictions better, and also, simply increase discussion surrounding this year’s playoffs. The goalie is one of the most important players on the ice, if not the most important.  Taking...

Fizzling Into the Playoffs

The Nashville Predators are hoping that their next few weeks will erase most of the memory of these past two. They have not played well heading into the NHL post-season and in fact have lost 6 in a row. The good news is that the regular season is really about qualifying for the post one. Am I right Los Angeles Kings? So we will move briskly through this past week for the Preds as...

Nashville Predators: Is there enough left in the tank?

Just a season after trading away the franchise leader in points (David Legwand) and firing the only head coach (Barry Trotz) the franchise has had, the Nashville Predators have clinched a spot in the playoffs.
