Nashville, TN – The Nashville Predators can’t seem to find a way to win games lately, falling tonight to the visiting Detroit Red Wings, 3-2.
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, 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.

Aho put the ‘Canes on the board at 15:44 of the first period when he took the puck in the neutral zone and beat Pekka Rinne through the five-hole for the early 1-0 lead.
