Nashville Predators Defeat The Pittsburgh Penguins 5-4 In Shoot-Out

 

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.

This was the Predator’s fourth win in a row after a successful road trip, and it was quite a debut for newly acquired Kyle Turris who scored a goal and had an assist in his Smashville debut.

The Predators still had a bad taste in their mouth after falling to the Penguins in the Stanley Cup final, and losing to the Pens earlier this year.

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 with Hank BonecutterClarksville, TN – The Nashville Predators hockey team is on the verge of winning the second round of the Stanley Cup playoffs and Predator’s fans have TOTALLY lost it!

Dodging the Roadkill: The Newberry Opera House

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyNewberry, SC – On a recent trip to South Carolina, a friend suggested to me that I pay a visit to Newberry South Carolina, just to see the Newberry Opera House.

Huh?  Me?  Opera?

The thing about traveling on a motorcycle, is that not only do you travel the “road less traveled,” but you will invariably see people and places that you would otherwise miss.  That’s the whole point of being a biker.  It’s not just the thrill of the motorcycle, it’s the doors it will open in your life.  To see things you wouldn’t normally see, or to meet people you otherwise wouldn’t meet.

My Two Cents: Nashville Predators Poised for Epic Night

 

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.

Games one and two had been dominated by Predator’s goalie, Pekka Rinne.  In a history making performance, Rinne held the Blackhawks scoreless in both games, as the Predators took both games.
