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 Winnipeg Jets 5-2 at Bridgestone Arena

 

Nashville PredatorsNashville, TN – The Nashville Predators came out swinging tonight against the Winnipeg Jets, while dominating the first two periods of the game. As the first period ended the teams were tied at 1, but you could see that when the second period began, things would be different.

Mattias Ekholm set a franchise record for scoring in four consecutive games, most of any Predators Defensive man.  Balanced scoring from a number of players has been a pretty common site of late for Nashville.  Tonight, Kevin Fiala, Mattias Ekholm, Ryan Johanson and Nick Bonino and Kyle Turris provided the offense against the Jets.

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.

Nashville PredatorsNashville, TN – The Nashville Predators got a bit of revenge Saturday night, when they defeated the defending Stanley Cup Champion Pittsburgh Penguins, 5-4 in a shoot-out.

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.
