Nashville Predators defeat the San Jose Sharks 4-2

 

Nashville PredatorsSan Jose, CA – The Nashville Predators completed their final west coast swing tonight as they defeated the San Jose Sharks 4-2.  Viktor Arvidsson scored to goals in the winning effort.

The Sharks present one of the hottest scoring teams in the NHL and the Predators knew they would have to keep them out of the net.  Juuse Saros started between the pipes tonight, giving Pekka Rinne a night off.

But keep your eyes on Colton Sissons who’s been playing great hockey of late.  Tonight he put his Predators on the board first at 1:07 of the opening period, snatching a juicy rebound in front of the net and the Predators had the early 2-0 lead.

Nashville Predators embarrassed by the Las Vegas Golden Knights 5-1

 

Nashville PredatorsLas Vegas, NV– The Las Vegas Golden Knights ran roughshod over the Nashville Predators tonight in sin city, breaking a five game home losing streak with the win, 5-1.

Nashville starting goalie Juuse Saros blocked 45 shots on the night, but Las Vegas attempted the most shots on goal for the season against Nashville with 50.

The Predators thought they had the first goal of the night in the first period when Colton Sissons scored on a breakaway, but the goal was disallowed when Vegas challenged for off side.  After the video review, it was determined that Sissons WAS in fact off side, so no goal.
