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.

My Two Cents: Nashville Predators, Pittsburgh Penguins Game One

 

My Two-Cents with Hank BonecutterClarksville, TN – The Nashville Predators walked onto the national sports stage in Pittsburgh last night for game one of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. They outplayed the defending champions, but lost the game.

I’m encouraged by their play and not too disappointed over the loss. What I AM disappointed about is mistakes. Stupid mistakes.

First, the referees. The reversed call on the Predator’s first goal was a bogus decision. We all watched it. We all saw the replay. Clearly there wasn’t enough evidence to overturn the decision on the ice which was a “good” goal. That changed the momentum of the game.

My Two Cents: Nashville Predators Win Western Conference Championship

 

My Two-Cents with Hank BonecutterNashville, TN – It was an amazing night to be at the Bridgestone Arena tonight as the Nashville Predators defeated the Anaheim Ducks, 6-3, to win the Western Conference Championship.  The Predators now await the winner of the Pittsburgh/Ottawa series to see who they will play.  

THIS IS FOR LORD STANLEY’S CUP!  THE MOST REVERED TROPHY IN ALL OF SPORTS!

The arena was sold out.  The grounds surrounding the Bridgestone Arena were packed with, by some estimates, 5,000-10,000 fans watching the game on the big screens that were placed all around the arena.

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.

My Two Cents: Nashville Predators Make History, Destiny to be Determined

 

My Two-Cents with Hank BonecutterNashville, TN – Well, now they’ve gone and done it.  Those Nashville Predators have won their second round playoff series against the St. Louis Blues.  They’ve done forged themselves into the record books, and will play for the Western Conference Championship against a yet to be determined opponent.

I don’t know if Predators fans can take it up another notch, but if there was a fan base that’s willing to say, “hey, hold my beer, and watch this” it’s Nashville. 

I’ve said all along that being at the Bridgestone Arena during a hockey game is the most earth shattering experience and I’ve seen AC/DC, Ted Nugent, and Cheap Trick in concert and by God, those were LOUD!

My Two Cents: Nashville Predators On The Verge, Fans Off The Charts

 

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!

In a REALLY exciting way!

As a season ticket holder, I’ve endured the good and the bad from this team.  As I’ve previously posted, this team looks unbeatable at times, and others, they look like they’re just treading water.  During this round of playoff hockey, they look invincible.
