Nashville Predators defeat Dallas Stars 2-0 set franchise record for consecutive wins

 

Nashville PredatorsNashville, TN – The Nashville Predators defeated the Dallas Stars 2-0 at Bridgestone Arena tonight, setting a franchise record for consecutive wins at 9 in a row.

Ryan Hartman scored the game winner after two lackluster periods at 5:33 of the third period when his backhanded shot went “top shelf” over Dallas goalie, Kari Lehtonen, for the 1-0 lead. 

That was all the Predators would need on this night against the Stars, but for good measure, Nick Bonino scored an empty netter with 14 seconds remaining in regulation for the 2-0 final.

My Two Cents: Nashville Predators Continue Historic Stanley Cup Run

 

My Two-Cents with Hank BonecutterClarksville, TN – They say the Stanley Cup is the hardest trophy to hoist.  Well, if you’re a Predators fan, you know this all too well.  We’re not there yet, but what a battle it’s been. 

This amazing team has rolled through Chicago and St. Louis and has taken the best shots that Anaheim has thrown at them.  Anaheim has turned this series into a gutter brawl.  Cheap shots, low blows and hits AFTER the whistle, but,  WE’RE STILL STANDING!  In fact, we lead the series, 3-2.
