Nashville, TN – A disappointing day in Smashville today as the visiting Colorado Avalanche muscled their way through the Nashville Predators, 5-0.
This is the final regular season meeting between the two teams, and the Predators were just outmatched from start to finish.
It wasn’t that the Predators didn’t have plenty of opportunity with 38 shots on goal, it’s just that they couldn’t get the puck in the net. Philipp Grubauer stood tall in net for the Avs, who beat the Chicago Blackhawks last night.
Clarksville, TN – The Nashville Predators continue to roll through the opposition with a convincing win over the Buffalo Sabres tonight, 4-0. The win completes a sweep of their three game road trip, and Pekka Rinne wins his 11th straight in goal. Nashville defeats their former assistant coach Phil Housley, who is in his first season as the head coach of the Sabres.
Buffalo started fast, controlling the offense to begin the affair, outshooting the Predators 13-10 in the opening frame. Buffalo would outshoot Nashville on the night, 35-32.
The problem was, they couldn’t break through the leading candidate for the Vezina trophy, Pekka Rinne, who had 35 saves on the night and recorded another shut-out.
Nashville, TN – The Nashville Predators defeated the Dallas Stars 2-0 at Bridgestone Arena tonight, setting a franchise record for consecutive wins at 9 in a row.
Ryan Hartman scored the game winner after two lackluster periods at 5:33 of the third period when his backhanded shot went “top shelf” over Dallas goalie, Kari Lehtonen, for the 1-0 lead.
That was all the Predators would need on this night against the Stars, but for good measure, Nick Bonino scored an empty netter with 14 seconds remaining in regulation for the 2-0 final.
Clarksville, TN – The Nashville Predators defeated the Colorado Avalanche 4-3, sweeping their four game road trip and tieing the team’s record for consecutive wins at 8.
Ryan Ellis tied the game at 3-3 with just over one minute remaining in regulation, then Filip Forsberg scored the game winner in overtime to give Nashville the victory.
The Predators scored first at 3:09 of the first period when Austin Watson netted a wrist shot for the 1-0 lead. Watson was assisted by Colton Sissons and Mattias Ekholm on the play.
Clarksville, Tn– The Nashville Predators keep using this same formula while winning on the road. Get behind early, then make a fantastic comeback to win the game, 4-3.
The Predators played that script to perfection tonight against the Vancouver Canucks, but tonight their secret weapon was Mike Fisher. Fisher made his return to the lineup after signing a 1 million dollar contract to return to the team, after briefly retiring after last season.
His impact was felt throughout, as he scored the first goal of the night for Nashville.
Nashville, TN – The Nashville Predators recovered from a lackluster performance against the Chicago Blackhawks on Tuesday night with an overwhelming attack against the visiting L.A. Kings, 5-0.
The return of Filip Forsberg paid dividends tonight with a goal and an assist, but Nashville goaltender Pekka Rinne was solid in net with 19 saves and producing his fifth shutout of the season. Rinne was making his first start since the NHL All-Star game and showed why he is one of the elite goaltenders in the league. The shutout was his 48th of his career.
Nashville, TN – The Nashville Predators returned home after a sluggish start to the 2017-18 NHL season to defeat the Philadelphia Flyers 6-5, as Filip Forsberg sealed it with 35 seconds remaining to complete a miraculous comeback win at Bridgestone Arena.
It wasn’t easy.
A sell out crowd was waiting for the defending Western Conference Champions, when former Predator Mike Fisher took the ice to help raise the championship banner.
Clarksville, TN – They say the Stanley Cup is the hardest trophy to hoist. Well, if you’re a Predators fan, you know this all too well. We’re not there yet, but what a battle it’s been.
This amazing team has rolled through Chicago and St. Louis and has taken the best shots that Anaheim has thrown at them. Anaheim has turned this series into a gutter brawl. Cheap shots, low blows and hits AFTER the whistle, but, WE’RE STILL STANDING! In fact, we lead the series, 3-2.
Nashville, 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!
