Is Carey Price Putting Up The Best Season By A Goalie In NHL History This Year?

It’s an interesting question, JD. Thanks, self! Just how good has Carey Price, G (L, 30 SV, 2 GA, .938%) been this season? Pretty damn good, that’s how good. In 52 starts he has posted a season line of 36-13-3/1.92/.935/6 and with 18 games left in the regular season for the Habs, Carey now leads the Vezina race over Pekka Rinne and will challenge Dominik Hasek’s ridiculous...

They did it at home too. The 15 game month of February has concluded but not on the note they wanted. Another week in which things started with promise. The Preds did what great teams do...

Avalanche-Predators Preview

Colorado's top players have led the way during the team's recent scoring outburst, but no one could figure out how to get the puck past Nashville's Pekka Rinne earlier this season. Colorado could face Rinne for the first time since his shutout in December in Tuesday night's visit to the Predators. The Avalanche (26-23-11) have scored 19 goals in a 4-1-0 stretch, and Nathan MacKinnon...

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...

Is bigger really better for NHL goaltenders?

My Dad used to wonder: “Why don’t teams just get a sumo wrestler to play goal? He’d clog up the whole net!” As an impressionable young hockey fan, I enthusiastically jumped aboard the bandwagon and clamored for my favorite team to do it.
