Predators finding new ways to win, hold on for 3-2 victory over Oilers

In years past for the Predators, there was the hidden potential of lulling themselves into a false sense of security against Western Canadian teams on weeknight contests at Bridgestone Arena. On a Tuesday night in Nashville, there was still the thought of a possible lopsided loss to the Edmonton Oilers, which wouldn’t be necessarily out of the question. Yet, this season is different...

Predators 3, Oilers 2

Notes: There were no signs of the slow-out-of-the-gate, first-goal-allowing team we’ve been seeing throughout the early season. The Predators were absolutely dominant in the first period, leading the shot count 17-6 and netting three goals while allowing none. Edmonton switched out goalies in the intermission and while the Preds led the shot count 11-8 in the second, they weren’t...

Nashville Predators 3 -Dallas Stars 2

Optimistic Thoughts: What a difference a couple of days make. After a special teams disaster on Tuesday, the power play and penalty were the driving forces in the game tonight. The man advantage notched two goals in the second period alone. One of the goals by no other than Filip Forsberg on another fabulous wrist shot with the help of Ribeiro screening in front. The penalty kill...

The Nashville Predators only had two games in Western Canada this week.

The 2nd line had been criticized the past few games for being relatively quiet but turned that around by being the best line on the ice all night long.With 4 points total among them in tonight’s game alone, Roy, Smith, and Cullen could...
