All Ryan Ellis haters please stand up!

Written By Joshua @Top6Grinder The Predators came away with another bonus hockey win against the Coyotes last night at Bridgestone arena.

New Voices In the Booth for Preds?

Written By: Greg Moshopoulos @GreekGoalie35 Everybody knew the culture of the Nashville Predators was changing when they allowed Barry Trotz to walk away, and subsequently hire Peter Laviolette as the new boss behind the bench.

March Madness and Three Pointers

Preds Continue To Squander Opportunities At Home

If there’s one thing the boys over on Broadway are consistent at…. it’s being inconsistent. Coming into this 5-game homestand, the Preds had 16 games left before the Olympic break to make some noise and get back in the playoff hunt. With Dallas faltering of late, that’s at least one team they could’ve gained ground on. Alas, after a strong ...

2013: Year in Regress
