Topic: Florida Panthers
Sunrise, FL – The Nashville Predators fell to the Florida Panthers in the second game of a back-to-back series 3-0, unable to score on Panthers goalie Chris Driedger who was playing in his first NHL game.
Driedger played like a seasoned veteran, stonewalling the Predators on all 27 shots he faced in the contest.
Nashville had some momentum coming into this game after last night’s shutout victory over the Carolina Hurricanes, but couldn’t break through on the scoreboard.
Raleigh, NC – The Nashville Predators shut-out the Carolina Hurricanes tonight 3-0, behind the goal tending of Pekka Rinne who returned to net after an eight day lay-off.
After being pulled from three of his last four starts, Rinne showed championship form tonight and produced the shut-out for Nashville who recovered from a devastating loss on Wednesday night to Las Vegas.
The Predators withstood an onslaught from the Hurricanes early in this contest and it was Rinne who stood firm in net to keep Carolina from taking the early advantage.
Nashville, TN – The Nashville Predators fell to the visiting Florida Panthers 3-2 at Bridgestone Arena tonight, still without the services of Filip Forsberg.
Forsberg has been out of the Predators line-up with a lower body injury suffered in Nashville’s road win over Las Vegas on Tuesday.
Neither team could get anything going in the opening period of tonight’s game, with both teams getting opportunities that were cast away by both starting goaltenders. Pekka Rinne in net for Nashville and Samuel Montembeault for Florida both started strong to open the game.
Las Vegas, NV – The Nashville Predators put on a dominating performance tonight in Sin City, defeating the Las Vegas Golden Knights, 5-2 to pick up their first road win of the season.
Kyle Turris got things started at just 2:14 of the opening period on a tip-in from Ryan Ellis to give Nashville the early 1-0 lead. Rocco Grimaldi also assisted on the goal.
Vegas came right back at 9:55 when Mark Stone snapped a shot past Pekka Rinne for the equalizer, 1-1. Then, Reilly Smith put the Golden Knights up 2-1 with a goal at 17:23, and suddenly the momentum was in favor of the home team.
Nashville, TN – The Nashville Predators fell to the Dallas Stars tonight, 3-1, unable to pull off back-to-back wins, after last night’s victory against the Florida Panthers.
On a night that honored former Predator Jordin Tootoo, the Predators were unable to crack the Dallas defense, specifically the goaltending of their back up goalie, Anton Khudobin.
The first goal of the night was scored by Calle Jarnkrok at 9:35 of the first period, who ripped a shot from the circle past Khudobin for the early 1-0 lead. It would be the only score of the night for Nashville.
Sunrise, FL – The Nashville Predators started the home stretch of the NHL season tonight with a convincing 4-1 victory over the Florida Panthers. Juuse Saros got the win in net and Viktor Arvidsson scored two goals to lead their team to the win.
Both teams looked a little rusty coming off the NHL All-Star break and it was Florida that held the 1-0 lead going to the third period. Saros got the start in net to rest Pekka Rinne who played in the all-star game, and had never beaten the Panthers until tonight.
Las Vegas, NV – The Nashville Predators rolled into Las Vegas tonight and defeated the Golden Knights, 2-1. Getting the two points was just what the doctor ordered before the NHL takes it’s annual All-Star break this weekend.
Vegas got on the board first at 8:03 of the first period when Max Pacioretty took a pass from Alex Tuch and buried the puck past Nashville goalie, Juuse Saros for the 1-0 lead.
The teams remained tied after the first period of play with Vegas outshooting the Predators 18-13, but Saros stood tall in net to keep the Predators close.
Nashville, TN – The Nashville Predators dropped their second game in a row at home to the Florida Panthers tonight, 4-2.
The Predators had fought back from a three goal deficit to draw to within a goal, but Jared McCann closed the door with his tip-in at 11:38 of the final frame.
Aaron Ekblad started the scoring at 4:05 of the first period, burying the one timer on the power play to beat Juuse Saros in goal for the 1-0 lead. Ekblad has now scored the most goals by a defenseman in Panthers history.
Nashville, TN – The Nashville Predators had nothing for the Winnipeg Jets tonight in a battle of Central Division rivals as the visitors pounded Nashville, 5-1.
From start to finish, the Jets outskated and outplayed the home team and proved why at this point in the season, they sit atop the division.
Brendan Lemieux pulled the wool over the eyes of the Nashville defense at 10:09 of the first period, when he faked a shot on the offensive rush, then slipped the wrap around shot past Pekka Rinne for the early 1-0 lead.
Nashville, TN – The Nashville Predators defeated the Stanley Cup Champion Washington Capitals tonight at Bridgestone Arena, 7-2, behind Viktor Arvidssons hat-trick.
Arvidsson has now scored nine goals in nine games for the Predators and shows no sign of wear and tear after returning from a broken thumb.
Washington was completing a “back-to-back” series tonight in Nashville, having lost in St. Louis last night to the Blues. The Capitals started their back up in goal, Pheonix Copley, and he got a very rude welcome to the music city.
