Barry Trotz finally got the axe

Life in the NHL won’t be the same without Barry Trotz coaching the Nashville Predators. He has been at the helm since that franchise’s very first game.Against all odds he lasted 15 seasons, generally keeping Predators competitive despite the lack of high-end scorers. Over the years Nashville has landed elite goaltending (Pekka Rinne) and top defensemen (Shea Weber, Ryan Suter...

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...

Predators rally past Blackhawks

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- The Chicago Blackhawks certainly draw plenty of their own fans with them when playing in Nashville. Simply playing the defending Stanley Cup champs definitely brings out the best in the Predators this season. Patric Hornqvist scored the go-ahead goal with 58.2 seconds left and Shea Weber added an empty-netter as the Nashville Predators rallied with five goals...

Coyotes look to snap skid, keep playoff hopes alive

The Phoenix Coyotes are mired in their longest losing streak of the season, but their latest defeat could have been worse. The Coyotes will try to end a five-game slide Thursday night in their final road game as they meet the Nashville Predators, who have been eliminated from playoff contention.

Shea Weber: “Something’s got to change”

After the Nashville Predators were officially eliminated from the playoff picture last night, captain Shea Weber — usually a man of very few words — vented to Josh Cooper of The Tennessean. “Nobody likes losing,” Weber said. “It’s frustrating. I don’t know what to say. It sucks. I hate it. Everyone in here hates it and it’s not a good feeling. Something’s got to...

Predators tout Shea Weber for Norris Trophy

The Predators have been touting the fact that Shea Weber is having probably the best season of his career. So it’s no major surprise that they have started a Norris Trophy campaign of sorts for the veteran defenseman. Weber is on pace for a career high in goals (he currently has 20) and points (he currently has 50) and averages 26:52 ice time per game (highest of his career)...

Nashville Predators play like contender, beat Ducks

The Predators are far from the postseason and have very little to play for the rest of the NHL season. But coach Barry Trotz has been adamant that his team has at least kept up its effort down the stretch of 2013-14. And it can play a role as a spoiler to teams jockeying for postseason positioning. Nashville did that Friday, pummeling the Ducks 5-2 and hurting Anaheim's playoff...

The Predators snapped a six-game home losing streak in style on Thursday, scoring early and often in a 6-1 win over Buffalo. Nashville scored four first-period goals off the sticks of Colton Sissons, Colin Wilson, Calle Jarnkrok and Shea Weber to put the Sabres in a hole that was too deep to get out of.

Weber seeks strong finish with Preds, blueliner goals title

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Predators captain Shea Weber always puts team goals before individual ones. But with less than 10 games remaining in the season and the Predators a long shot to make the playoffs, at best, Weber still has some individual milestones that are within reach. "Obviously, (I) want to contribute and chip in any way I can offensively," Weber said, "but...

What’s Wrong With Craig Anderson?

from Don Brennan of the Ottawa Sun, It's quite possible the rising questions about Craig Anderson's character would be put to bed by somebody coming clean on his injury. Instead, we are left to believe a 'stinger' has kept the No. 1 goalie out of the line up for five games already -- and now at least two more going forward -- which has prompted experts on...

Another reason the Senators have to be disappointed in their season - they are blowing an opportunity presented by fate. Heading into Tuesday, they had lost just 48 man-games to injury, by far the fewest in the league. Next luckiest was the Los Angeles Kings, who had lost 91. At the other end of the spectrum, the Pittsburgh Penguins had lost a league-leading 413 man-games to injury...

Two thoughts for Thursday.

This year's been a funny one on the injury front. The team has been comically lucky, one year after having their roster totally decimated...
