Nashville, TN – The Nashville Predators are desperately needing wins, but tonight wouldn’t be that night as the Tampa Bay Lightning came to town and beat the Predators in over-time, 3-2.
The Predators are just outside the discussion of play-off hockey and need to start collecting points, but in this “big boy” hockey game tonight, (as described by NBCSN) it was not to be.
All was not lost though as the Predators managed to pick up a point as the two teams were tied through regulation.
Detroit, MI – The Nashville Predators totally dominated the Detroit Red Wings tonight, exploding for five goals in the second period, to get an important road win, 6-1.
The Red Wings have had Nashville’s number, winning 10 of the last 11 meetings between the two teams, but tonight, the Predators were able to chase starting goalie Jimmy Howard with a flurry of goals in the second period.
Detroit got on the board first at 2:35 of the opening period when Andreas Althanasiou took a pass from Filip Hronek to beat Pekka Rinne on the short side for the early 1-0 lead. As it turns out, that would be the only marker of the night for the Red Wings.
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.
Glendale, AZ – The Nashville Predators fell to the Arizona Coyotes 5-2 behind three power-play goals and a two goal performance from Phil Kessel. Nashville lost two of the three road games on this three game western swing.
Nashville goalie Juuse Saros lost his third start of the season and the Predators were without Filip Forsberg who is out with a lower body injury.
Christian Dvorak put Arizona on the board first with a wrist shot at 6:06 of the first period for the early 1-0 lead.
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 rebounded from the weekend loss to the Detroit Red Wings in fine fashion tonight, beating the hapless San Jose Sharks, 5-2.
As head coach Peter Laviolette continues to shuffle his lines to see where the magic is, the Predators appeared to be hitting on all points tonight.
THE Captain, Roman Josi got things started for Nashville at 6:16 of the opening frame with a wrist shot that put the Preds on the scoreboard first, leading 1-0. Josi was assisted on the score by Colton Sissons and Ryan Ellis.
Nashville, TN – The Nashville Predators have been backed into a corner by the Dallas Stars, losing at home, 5-3 and now facing elimination in their first round playoff series.
Dallas was all over the Predators right from the puck drop in today’s matinee game. The Stars now lead the best of seven series, 3-2, and can capture the series on Monday night in Dallas.
Nashville got on the board first, which is usually a good omen, when Rocco Grimaldi scored at 6:25 of the opening frame. Grimaldi captured a bouncing puck while driving to the net and netted the goal past Ben Bishop to take the early lead, 1-0.
Nashville, TN – The Nashville Predators fell to the Pittsburgh Penguins, 2-1 in a Bridgestone Arena shoot-out, with Sidney Crosby proving to be the difference.
The Predators were pedaling uphill all night long chasing the game after a whirlwind start where they attacked the Pens in the opening frame of the contest. Once again, the story of their season so far, they have no power play.
The two teams traded punches during the first period with plenty of opportunities for both teams, but both Pekka Rinne and Matt Murray stood tall in net for their respective teams to keep the game scoreless.
Nashville, TN – The Nashville Predators played like gangbusters for the first two periods of hockey tonight, then had to hold on for the win against the L.A Kings, 2-1. With the win, the Predators take over first place in the Central Division of the Western Conference.
The Kings suffer their sixth loss in a row and are reeling towards the end of their season, as Nashville was expected to have little trouble with L.A tonight.
Kyle Turris got things started for Nashville at 8:50 of the opening period taking a cross ice pass from Filip Forsberg and blasting the one-timer past Kings goalie Jonathan Quick for the early 1-0 lead.
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.
