Nashville, TN – The Nashville Predators saw their three-game win streak come to an abrupt end tonight at the hands of the Carolina Hurricanes, 4-1.
The Predators were just outplayed by Carolina tonight, and couldn’t break through the superior goal tending of Petr Mrazek.
Nashville was hoping to continue their momentum of late with a another chance on home ice for the win, but home ice advantage hasn’t been something the Predators have been able to count on.
Chicago, IL – The Nashville Predators got a breakthrough win tonight against the Chicago Blackhawks, 5-2. It was the first win for new head coach John Hynes.
The highlight of the night came in the final seconds of the game when Nashville goalie Pekka Rinne scored his first EVER goal from his own net.
The Predators started strong against Chicago, dominating the first period and taking a 3-0 lead after the opening frame. Goals from Viktor Arvidsson at 3:16, Colin Blackwell at 8:22, and Matt Duchene at 16:55 proved to be a dominating period.
Nashville, TN – In their first game under new head coach John Hynes, the Nashville Predators fell hard to the visiting Boston Bruins, 6-2.
It’s been a whirlwind of activity over the last 48 hours with the dismissal of Peter Laviolette and the hiring of Hynes, hoping to spark a Nashville team that has now lost four of their last five games.
Boston picks up their first win in four games with the victory.
The Bruins were all over the Predators from the start. Brad Marchand and Viktor Arvidsson were sent to the box just 14 seconds into the game when Marchand cross-checked Arvidsson, who was then called for embellishment.
Nashville, TN – The struggles of the Nashville Predators continued tonight as the visiting Chicago Blackhawks extracted a bit of revenge with a 7-2 beat down of the Predators.

Rinne had gotten off to an 8-0-2 start to the season but has had trouble stopping shots since the recent road trip. Saros hasn’t performed much better in what was expected to be a break-out season for him.
San Jose, CA – The Nashville Predators managed to squeeze a point out of tonight’s loss to the San Jose Sharks, losing 2-1 in regulation. The game went to a shoot-out where Timo Meier, in his first shoot-out appearance, slipped one over the shoulder of Juuse Saros for the win.
Nashville entered tonight’s game wondering how they would recover from the embarrassing loss to the Colorado Avalanche on Thursday night, 9-4, but hit the ice determined to play Predators hockey. This is the third of four road games for the Predators, as they wrap this road trip up in Vancouver on Tuesday night.
Detroit, MI – The Nashville Predators totally dominated the Detroit Red Wings tonight, exploding for five goals in the second period, to get an important road win, 6-1.
The Red Wings have had Nashville’s number, winning 10 of the last 11 meetings between the two teams, but tonight, the Predators were able to chase starting goalie Jimmy Howard with a flurry of goals in the second period.
Detroit got on the board first at 2:35 of the opening period when Andreas Althanasiou took a pass from Filip Hronek to beat Pekka Rinne on the short side for the early 1-0 lead. As it turns out, that would be the only marker of the night for the Red Wings.
Nashville, TN – The Nashville Predators held a three goal lead after two periods of play, only to fall in overtime to the Calgary Flames, 6-5 in Nashville. It was a stunned Smashville crowd that headed for the exits when Mathew Tkachuk slipped the game winner past Pekka Rinne as the buzzer sounded to end the extra period.
The Predators were in full command of this one right from the start. Nick Bonino continued his scoring onslaught as he gave Nashville the early 1-0 lead, just 5:33 into the opening period.

Nashville, TN – Pekka Rinne posted his first shut-out of the season while earning his 6th victory as the Nashville Predators downed the visiting Minnesota Wild, 4-0.
It was Rinne who thwarted the Minnesota attack in the first period to give his team a chance to turn the tables on the Wild for the win.
The Vezina Trophy winning Rinne stopped all 26 shots on goal tonight for another impressive victory in front of the Smashville faithful.
