Nashville Predators 3 – Minnesota Wild 1

Optimistic Thoughts: These two teams clearly don’t send each other Christmas cards as the physicality was everywhere in the second half of the game. Taylor Beck and Matt Cullen returned to the lineup, and Anton Volchenkov’s number was called as Ryan Ellis is out with a lower body injury. The Predators opened the scoring with yet another great play Colin Wilson to feed Mike Fisher...

Predators 2, Blue Jackets 1

Notes: Props to Columbus goalie Curtis McElhinney, who stopped 40 of 42 shots and bailed the Blue Jackets out on several occasions.

Columbus was able to sink their lone goal seconds after the end of a 5-on-3 as Taylor Beck was returning to the ice, but the Preds were able to wrangle...

Nashville Predators 9 – Toronto Maple Leafs 2

Optimistic Thoughts: How’s that for a fast start! The Predators jumped all over the Maple Leafs and didn’t look back. An absolute thrashing of Toronto on their home ice. Nashville’s 1st line came into the night scoring 50% of the team’s goals so far this year, but it was a full team effort tonight especially with the fourth line being credited with three goals.

Nashville Predators 4- Edmonton Oilers 1

Optimistic Thoughts: How about the new 2nd line? Matt Cullen was slotted into the line tonight with his season debut and brought instant success. The 2nd line had been criticized the past few games for being relatively quiet but turned that around by being the best line on the ice all night long.With 4 points total among them in tonight’s game alone, Roy, Smith, and Cullen could...

Nashville Predators 4, Dallas Stars 1

Two games into the season, the Predators are looking very much like the team fans have been longing for. Fast, aggressive and offensively relentless seems to be the name of the game under new head coach Peter Laviolette’s system, which will come as a breath of fresh air to fans who were growing tired of the dump and chase, endless puck cycling strategy employed by Barry Trotz....

Pond hockey in Nashville? Imagine playing on the Cumberland…

Imagine this scene: the backdrop of the Nashville skyline with a body of water so frozen that people can grab some sticks and lace up their skates.
