Nashville Predators fall short in comeback against the Ottawa Senators

 

Nashville PredatorsOttawa Ontario, Canada – The Nashville Predators made a valiant effort to dig themselves out of a three-goal deficit tonight, only to lose in overtime against the Ottawa Senators, 4-3.

The Predators found themselves trailing 3-0 after the first period of play, causing coach Peter Laviolette to pull Pekka Rinne from goal to begin the second period.

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 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.

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.
