This is the third consecutive loss for the home boys, and Detroit comes away with a sweep of the two game series.

It wasn’t from lack of effort, which coach Peter Laviolette is pleased with, they just can’t seem to catch a break or get the puck to bounce in their favor.

Nashville Predators drop second in a row to the St. Louis Blues 5-4

 

Nashville PredatorsNashville, TN – The Nashville Predators dropped the second game of a back-to-back series to the St. Louis Blues today, 5-4.  The only good thing about the game was their ability to come back to earn a point.

Nashville was fighting their way out of a wet paper bag the entire contest, and never led the game.  Viktor Arvidsson was the bright spot scoring twice in the loss.

Costly turnovers and sloppy puck management has been the order of the day for the Predators and with a week power play, it doesn’t bode well for a deep run into the Stanley Cup playoffs.

Nashville PredatorsNashville, TN – The Nashville Predators recovered from a disastrous Canadian road trip to defeat the Ottawa Senators at the Bridgestone Arena, 3-1.

The win in front of a noisy “Smashville” home crowd, was a much needed shot in the arm following two losses last week to Vancouver and Calgary.  The injury plagued Predators have been finding ways to win without P.K Subban, Viktor Arvidsson and Kyle Turris, all on the injury list.

Ottawa scored first, just twenty six seconds into the contest on a mishandled shot by Pekka Rinne.  Zack Smith’s backhand skipped over the outstretched glove of Rinne for the early 1-0 Ottawa lead.
