My Two Cents: Nashville Predators Win Thrilling Home Opener 6-5

 

My Two-Cents with Hank BonecutterNashville, TN – The Nashville Predators returned home after a sluggish start to the 2017-18 NHL season to defeat the Philadelphia Flyers 6-5, as Filip Forsberg sealed it with 35 seconds remaining to complete a miraculous comeback win at Bridgestone Arena.  

It wasn’t easy.

A sell out crowd was waiting for the defending Western Conference Champions, when former Predator Mike Fisher took the ice to help raise the championship banner.

My Two Cents: What a Wild Ride with the Nashville Predators

 

My Two-Cents with Hank BonecutterNashville, TN – Well it’s over.  The true “Cinderella” of the National Hockey League, our Nashville Predators, have bowed out.  Losing last night 2-0, the Penguins win the series and hoist Lord Stanley’s cup for the second year in a row.

I was there, and I didn’t like it one bit.

Honestly, I’m so exhausted I can barely hold my head up.  This playoff series, while exciting as hell, has taken me physically, mentally and financially.  I was ready for this to be over a couple of weeks ago. 

I’m going to try and put all of this in perspective as best I can, without mentioning the officiating.  I’ll leave that for another column.

My Two Cents: Nashville Predators Even The Series With Pittsburgh 4-1

 

My Two-Cents with Hank BonecutterNashville, TN – The Nashville Predators returned from Pittsburgh down 1-2 to the Stanley Cup Champion Penguins and all the talk was about how Pekke Rinne just wasn’t on his game.  That he should have made some saves that he didn’t. Even the so called “experts” agreed that Pekke just wasn’t the same goalie we had seen before.

Well guess what?  The Pekke Rinne I’ve been watching in Nashville looks to be unbeatable.  With the exception of the Sydney Crosby breakaway goal, the only score by Pittsburgh on the night, Pekke made superhuman saves tonight and looked to back on his most stellar form.

My Two Cents: Nashville Predators Score Big

 

My Two-Cents with Hank BonecutterNashville, TN – The Nashville Predators returned home needing to win game 3 of the Stanley Cup Finals, and win they did. The 5-1 beat down of the Penguins gets the Predators back into this contest headed to game 4. 

Once the NBC networks got over their infatuation with the CATFISH, it was time to focus on the task at hand.

Rumors that Pekke Rinne was not going to start game three in goal circulated throughout the afternoon and it was minutes before puck drop when we learned that he indeed WOULD be in goal.
