Bruins-Predators 3 Stars: Tuukka Rask Makes 38 Saves In Shootout Loss

Finland’s two two goaltenders put on a show Tuesday night in Nashville, where Pekka Rinne propelled the Predators to a 3-2 shootout win over countryman Tuukka Rask and the Boston Bruins. Offense was hard to come by as both goaltenders made at least 33 saves and kept their teams in the game with fantastic stops in the third period and overtime. Here are the “3 Stars” from Bruins...

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...

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...

Predators 4, Kings 3

Notes: Although you wouldn’t know it from the score, the Predators mostly dominated the first period, putting up relentless back-to-back shifts and outshooting the Kings 12-7. Jamie McBain squeezed a goal in for the Kings and a delay of game penalty against Shea Weber allowed them an opportunity to catch up in the shot count, but the Preds outshot LA 9-2 at even strength and...

Fantasy Hockey 2014-15: Erik Karlsson, Shea Weber Top Defensemen Rankings

It’s difficult to win the Stanley Cup without a rock-solid, defensive defenseman anchoring your blue line. The opposite is true in fantasy hockey — owners need a offensive-minded blueliner who will rack up points at even strength and the power play on a consistent basis. The best player available is Ottawa Senators star Erik Karlsson, who’s tallied 78 and 74 points in each...

Predators’ Shea Weber Puts Hole In Boards With Powerful Slap Shot (Video)

Nashville Predators defenseman Shea Weber’s slap shot is one of the most powerful in the NHL. The last time we saw him unleash his shot during a skills challenge was at the 2012 NHL All-Star Skills Competition, where he finished second to Boston Bruins captain Zdeno Chara in the Hardest Shot portion of the event with a 106 mph blast. During a skate with teammates on Thursday, Weber...

Shea Weber’s Slap Shot Is Literally Destroying Boards Now

Nashville Predators defenseman Shea Weber has one of the hardest slap shots in the entire NHL.
