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.

My Two Cents: Nashville Predators Make History, Destiny to be Determined

 

My Two-Cents with Hank BonecutterNashville, TN – Well, now they’ve gone and done it.  Those Nashville Predators have won their second round playoff series against the St. Louis Blues.  They’ve done forged themselves into the record books, and will play for the Western Conference Championship against a yet to be determined opponent.

I don’t know if Predators fans can take it up another notch, but if there was a fan base that’s willing to say, “hey, hold my beer, and watch this” it’s Nashville. 

I’ve said all along that being at the Bridgestone Arena during a hockey game is the most earth shattering experience and I’ve seen AC/DC, Ted Nugent, and Cheap Trick in concert and by God, those were LOUD!

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.
