My Two Cents: Nashville Predators Poised for Epic Night

 

My Two-Cents with Hank BonecutterClarksville, TN – The Nashville Predators lead the Chicago Blackhawks 3-0 in their Stanley Cup playoff series, and come Thursday night, history could be made in Smashville.  

Could a mid-market NHL franchise actually “sweep” the legendary Blackhawks?  Stanley Cup Champions?

Yes.

Games one and two had been dominated by Predator’s goalie, Pekka Rinne.  In a history making performance, Rinne held the Blackhawks scoreless in both games, as the Predators took both games.

Tennessee Volunteers - UT VolsNashville, TN – Tennessee dropped a tightly-contested contest to Georgia, 59-57, on Thursday afternoon in the second round of the SEC Tournament at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville.

Admiral Schofield had a good look from three for the win but his shot came up short and No. 8 seed Georgia (19-13, 9-9 SEC) held on to advance to face No. 1 seed Kentucky in Friday’s quarterfinals.

UT was held to just 33 percent shooting while UGA shot 43 percent but committed 15 turnovers to keep the Vols in the game.

Tennessee Athletics Department

Tennessee Volunteers - UT VolsNashville, TN After trailing by as many as 21, Tennessee fought back to within a couple possessions of No. 8 Gonzaga, but the second-half push went no further as the Vols fell to the unbeaten Bulldogs, 86-76, at Bridgestone Arena on Sunday night.

Tennessee (6-5) was led offensively by junior guard Detrick Mostella, who spurred the Vols’ comeback attempt with 15 of his 17 points coming in the second half. Grant Williams added 11 points while Robert Hubbs III finished with 10.

Billed as The Battle on Broadway, Sunday’s game between Tennessee and Gonzaga (11-0) was a rematch of last season’s Battle in Seattle. This season’s edition played out in a similar fashion as the one before it, with the Bulldogs jumping out to a big early lead and the Vols nearly erasing it.
