Nashville Predators Lose 3-0 to Vegas Golden Knights

 

Nashville PredatorsClarksville, TN – The Nashville Predators just don’t have the Vegas Golden Knights figured out.  Whether it’s in Nashville, or Las Vegas, the uptempo game pushed by Vegas is just too much for the Predators. 

Las Vegas had the best record in the NHL for the month of December, going 11-1-1.  They sit atop the Western Conference and obviously they haven’t been told they’re an expansion team, and this style of hockey just isn’t played by expansion teams.  

But it seems to be working, whatever formula they’re following, because tonight they put another dominating performance on Nashville, for the 3-0 shutout.

Nashville Predators Blank Minnesota Wild 3-0

 

Nashville PredatorsClarksville, TN – The Nashville Predators rebounded from a disappointing loss to the Minnesota Wild last night with a resounding shutout win at Bridgestone Arena, 3-0. 

With the news that Filip Forsberg had been placed on injured reserve earlier in the day, there was an ominous cloud hanging over Smashville when the puck dropped at 7:00pm.

Team officials had revealed the news about Forsberg earlier in the day, saying only that he had an upper body injury and further evaluation was needed to determine how long he would be out of the line up.

My Two Cents: Nashville Predators, Pittsburgh Penguins Game One

 

My Two-Cents with Hank BonecutterClarksville, TN – The Nashville Predators walked onto the national sports stage in Pittsburgh last night for game one of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. They outplayed the defending champions, but lost the game.

I’m encouraged by their play and not too disappointed over the loss. What I AM disappointed about is mistakes. Stupid mistakes.

First, the referees. The reversed call on the Predator’s first goal was a bogus decision. We all watched it. We all saw the replay. Clearly there wasn’t enough evidence to overturn the decision on the ice which was a “good” goal. That changed the momentum of the game.

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: Nashville Predators Poised for Epic Night

 

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.
