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...

Winning Out West

The Nashville Predators have become so consistent that this column is becoming redundant. Almost every week we talk about great goaltending, 4 points, the continued battle for the Central Division crown, & how special Filip Forsberg looks. These are great things to be having to write about weekly. The week featured the Preds traveling to Colorado and trying to continue that fun...

Nashville Predators 5 – Arizona Coyotes 1

Optimistic Thoughts: The drought is over! The Predators finally put up a goal (basically two) with the man advantage on their first two opportunities in the first after going down a goal. Nashville controlled the play, and James Neal looks rejuvenated after breaking through in the goal column with an empty netter last game. Neal was arguably the best player on the ice with his elite...

Nashville Predators 3 – Colorado Avalanche 0

Optimistic Thoughts: Anton Volchenkov and Paul Gaustad returned to the lineup after healing from minor injures, but Gaustad unfortunately was reinjured very early in the game and was unable to return. The forward lines were shuffled with the second line of Craig Smith, Colin Wilson, and Calle Jarnkrok being broken up. Olli Jokinen joined Wilson and Jarnkrok while Smith skated with...

Adversity to Overcome

The Nashville Predators have finally hit a week in which they were met with a fair amount of adversity and garnered few points for the standings. It wasn’t a week that was a total loss but it certainly showed that the Preds have some areas to improve upon if they are to remain near the top of the Western Conference. The week started off on Tuesday in Carolina. Cam Ward had a very...

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...

Nashville Predators 1 – Chicago Blackhawks 3

Optimistic Thoughts: The intensity meter was turned up a few notches for this Central Division clash. With the influx of Blackhawks fans in the arena, the game opened with a battle to out-chant the other fan base that contributed to the great atmosphere. The physicality heightened with Andrew Shaw throwing James Neal into Chicago’s bench that continued throughout the game. After...

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...
