Multi-goal efforts from Josi, Cullen not enough to propel Predators past Avalanche

Scoring more than three goals a game has been one of Nashville’s recipes of success over the past handful of years. This season for the Predators, what can go wrong will seemingly go wrong. Sacrificing leads of 2-0, 3-2, and 4-3, the Nashville Predators would squander two-goal nights from both Roman Josi and Matt Cullen, dropping a 5-4 decision to the Colorado Avalanche in a shootout...

Nashville Predators hope time off helped players

It’s not often that a struggling NHL player gets a three-week break to assess his game, heal his wounds and return to the ice with a new attitude. The Predators are hoping that’s one of the benefits of the Olympic break, which will end Thursday when Nashville takes on Tampa Bay at Bridgestone Arena. With just 23 games left and ground to make up in the Western Conference playoff...
