Predators' six-game winning streak ends against Islanders

UNIONDALE, N.Y. -- The New York Islanders didn't let the NHL-leading Nashville Predators push them around in their last visit to Long Island. The last one in the regular season, at least. No, the Predators won't be back at Nassau Coliseum again unless these surprising upstart clubs march their way to a Stanley Cup finals matchup. As far-fetched as that might have seemed in October...

Consistency on special teams key for Predators down the stretch

NASHVILLE -- It's impossible to overstate how important special teams are to the ongoing success of a team through the final months of the NHL's regular season and playoffs. They can further a teams success depending on how well they're clicking. In the same respect, poor outings from special-teams units can equally leave teams in the bottom half of the league or grasping for...

Coach Laviolette called timeout after a flurry and a goal for the Blues, however, and the Preds looked like a different team almost immediately, taking a 2-1 lead into the first intermission...
