Nashville PredatorsClarksville, TN – The Nashville Predators continue their winning ways by defeating the Dallas Stars 5-2 on the road. Nashville put an end to the Stars five game winning streak as back up goalie Juuse Saros made 43 saves on the night for the Predators.

Coming off of a 5-3 win over Boston last night, the Predators flew to Dallas for a “back-to-back” series against the red hot Stars at the American Airlines Center.

Nashville is getting scoring from a number of players in their line-up, and tonight was no different.  Kyle Turris, Kevin Fiala, Calle Jarnkrok, Cody McLeod and Pontus Aberg lit the lamp tonight for Nashville.

Nashville Predators defeat Montreal Canadiens 3-2 in Shoot-Out

 

Nashville PredatorsNashville, TN – The Nashville Predators won their third consecutive game and eighth of their last nine with a 3-2 victory over the hapless Montreal Canadiens at Bridgestone Arena tonight.

Nashville was on their heels for most of the first period when Jordie Benn gave the Canadiens the lead at 1-0 at 12:47 of the period.  The Predators couldn’t keep the puck in their offensive zone and was playing “chase the puck” for most of the period, but with .08 seconds remaining, Filip Forsberg tied the game on the power play. 

The second period didn’t offer much in the way of offense and the two teams went to the locker room tied at 1-1.

Nashville Predators defeat Colorado Avalanche 5-2

 

Nashville PredatorsNashville, TN – The Nashville Predators overcame a terrible, penalty filled first period to bounce back and defeat the Colorado Avalanche, 5-2 at Bridgestone Arena. 

The Nashville penalty killers were busy to start the game, having to kill 11 minutes of penalty time, and survive the offensive rush of Colorado to finish the first twenty minutes with a 1-0 lead.  Craig Smith gave the Predators the lead as five different Predators would score on the night.

Nashville was coming off a disappointing loss at Minnesota that saw them with the lead on several occasions, but a late game slump allowed the Wild to win, 6-4.

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 Athletics Department

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.
