Improving Face-offs Could Lead To Power Play Success

The one glaring weakness in an otherwise tremendous season for the Nashville Predators is the power play. Special teams have been discussed ad nauseum for the majority of the season because most nights the man advantage is sub-par at best while their five on five play is among the best in the entire league. A rather baffling scenario that with the influx of great offensive talent...

Aftermath: 12/22/14 vs Predators

Columbus’ nine game point streak came to a crashing end, as the Preds rolled into Nationwide and rolled over the Jackets to the tune of a 5-1 win. Bobrovsky had “one of those nights” where he made some fantastic saves, but finally allowed a few to get past him. It wasn’t entirely on him, of course. The defense made some awful mistakes, pinching freely and not being able...

Winning Out West

The Nashville Predators have become so consistent that this column is becoming redundant. Almost every week we talk about great goaltending, 4 points, the continued battle for the Central Division crown, & how special Filip Forsberg looks.

Fixing power play continues to be area of focus for Predators

NASHVILLE -- Through the first quarter of any season in the NHL, you can get a good sense of how to rank a team's performance in all facets on the ice. How much of that, though, can you take with a grain of salt for the remaining three quarters of the season yet to be played? Nearly every area has been trending upwards for the Predators. Nashville's special teams have been one, if...

Adversity to Overcome

The Nashville Predators have finally hit a week in which they were met with a fair amount of adversity and garnered few points for the standings. It wasn’t a week that was a total loss but it certainly showed that the Preds have some areas to improve upon if they are to remain near the top of the Western Conference.

Predators 4, Blues 3

Notes: The surprisingly successful early season “lolligag until we’re down a goal” strategy made a comeback, as the Predators sat on their heels for the first few minutes of the game. 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...

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...
