Predators eliminated from playoff contention

The Nashville Predators saw their slim playoff hopes disappear Tuesday night by the hands of the Dallas Stars. Entering the game, Nashville was behind six points with four matches remaining.

Predators offensive woes cured by visit from NHL-worst Buffalo Sabres

With only nine games remaining, the Nashville Predators are living on a prayer. For a team who had scored more than one goal twice in the past six games and is 25th in the entire NHL in goals per game with 2.41, the Predators needed an answer for their offensive woes.

Nashville’s futility in shootouts may cost them playoff spot

You know how, when playing 20-spot Keno, you actually win something if none of your numbers come up? That’s what should happen with the Nashville Predators and the shootout. They should at least get something. Not only have they failed to win a single game via the shootout this season, the Predators have scored just once in 19 attempts. “That’s not good enough,” Head Coach...

Patten’s Plus-Minus: Nashville Predators vs. Phoenix Coyotes

The best and worst from Nashville’s 4-2 win over the Phoenix Coyotes on Monday night. Plus: Marek Mazanec has been simply outstanding in net over the past two weeks. For a player who had never even appeared on an NHL roster until three weeks ago, Mazanec has stepped up into the role that has been given to him.
