Nashville Predators shut-out by Las Vegas Golden Knights 3-0

 

Nashville PredatorsNashville, TN – Just when you think that the Nashville Predators were on a roll, they come home and get shut-out by the visiting Las Vegas Golden Knights, 3-0.

Coming off of back to back wins on the road, the anticipation was high for Nashville to put together a winning streak, but the Predators just couldn’t get the puck on net. 

Nashville was held to just 19 shots on goal for the night, while Pekka Rinne was having a career night in net.  Rinne kept his team in this one for most of the night, but just couldn’t do it alone.

Nashville Predators embarrassed by the Las Vegas Golden Knights 5-1

 

Nashville PredatorsLas Vegas, NV– The Las Vegas Golden Knights ran roughshod over the Nashville Predators tonight in sin city, breaking a five game home losing streak with the win, 5-1.

Nashville starting goalie Juuse Saros blocked 45 shots on the night, but Las Vegas attempted the most shots on goal for the season against Nashville with 50.

The Predators thought they had the first goal of the night in the first period when Colton Sissons scored on a breakaway, but the goal was disallowed when Vegas challenged for off side.  After the video review, it was determined that Sissons WAS in fact off side, so no goal.

Nashville Predators defeat the Colorado Avalanche 4-1, Laviolette notches 600th

 

Nashville PredatorsDenver, CO– The Nashville Predators broke through with a much needed win today in the mile high city of Denver, Colorado, shutting down the Avalanche, 4-1.

Coming off of back to back losses, the Predators stood tall behind the unbelievable play of their Vicenza Trophy winning goalie, Pekka Rinne.

Rinne absolutely shut the Avalanche down in the first period and had it not been for his stellar play, Nashville could have easily been down 5-0.

Head coach Peter Laviolette had commented that he saw a lot of good things in his team over the last couple of games, but they needed to come better prepared to start the first period.  Nashville fell behind early in the last two games and couldn’t recover.

The United States of Welfare

 

Recently, I saw a graphic on Facebook depicting certain states in the USA where there were more people on welfare than working in that state. A couple of days later, I read a post that a friend shared on Facebook, again, about welfare.

I was not surprised at the post, rather, reminded that sometimes it takes a couple nudges for us to see what we’re really seeing. The post was from Mike Huckabee, a former preacher and presidential candidate. «Read the rest of this article»
