Predators 6, Wild 5

Notes: An intense first period saw five goals. The Preds got their customary “first goal allowed” out of the way early and managed to tie it back up minutes later on a beautiful Calle Jarnkrok dangle. After a strong back-and-forth throughout the period, Nashville carried a 3-2 lead into the first intermission. During the extended powerplay that resulted from Mike Fisher picking...

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...

Roman Josi among the NHL’s Best

Nashville has been fortunate in recent years when it comes to top quality defenseman. Ryan Suter and Shea Weber were arguably the best pairing in the league for a stretch before Suter departed in the infamous 2012 summer. The Preds are back on track and boast one of the top defensive corps in the entire league. How has Nashville been able to absorb the loss of such a great defenseman...

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...

Nashville Predators 1 – Carolina Hurricanes 2

Optimistic Thoughts: Superman didn’t have his cape on tonight. Rinne still had a solid performance and kept the Predators in the game, but he couldn’t steal another win for the good guys. While Nashville started quickly, they seemed to tail off toward the end of the first and most of the second. The goals by Carolina were on a great deflection by Jeff Skinner who kills the Preds...

A Week to be Thankful For

The Nashville Predators are a force in progress. Yes, they have their weaknesses but they consistently find ways to overcome them and win games. This past week was no different as the Preds won all three of their games and in close fashion and remain first in the Central Division. They are now first in the Western Conference with that game in hand on St. Louis. Also, they just...

Nashville Predators 3 – St. Louis Blues 4

Optimistic Thoughts: What. A. Game. This game was for first place in the division and these two teams played like it. Fast pace and high intensity characterized the game and things escalated in the physicality department during the second causing an array of penalties. Filip Forsberg gets on the board with a goal and two assists to keep his point streak and  Calder Trophy campaign...

Another World Championships, another Pred named MVP

In 2013, it was Roman Josi. In 2014, it’s Pekka Rinne. Obviously the Nashville Predators want to be playing hockey well into May on this side of the Atlantic Ocean but, given the circumstances, they’ll take success they can get right now. Rinne won silver with Team Finland at the 2014 IIHF World Championships on Sunday but, after the Final, was named the tournament’s MVP....

Preds hang seven more on Minnesota to close out 13-14 season

Just like game 81, game 82 saw the Nashville Predators trail by two early but battle back to put on an offensive onslaught and hang seven goals on their opponent. In front of 18,658 at Xcel Energy Center, the Preds beat the playoff-bound Minnesota Wild by a score of 7-3. Nashville finished the year on a 9-1-2 run but even 20 out of 24 possible points wasn’t enough to sneak into...

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.

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...
