Nashville PredatorsNewark, NJ – The Nashville Predators make it two in a row with a hard earned victory over the New Jersey Devils tonight, 6-5 at the Prudential Center.

Nashville Predators in a free fall with loss to the Boston Bruins 6-2

 

Nashville PredatorsNashville, TN – In their first game under new head coach John Hynes, the Nashville Predators fell hard to the visiting Boston Bruins, 6-2. 

It’s been a whirlwind of activity over the last 48 hours with the dismissal of Peter Laviolette and the hiring of Hynes, hoping to spark a Nashville team that has now lost four of their last five games.

Boston picks up their first win in four games with the victory.

The Bruins were all over the Predators from the start.  Brad Marchand and Viktor Arvidsson were sent to the box just 14 seconds into the game when Marchand cross-checked Arvidsson, who was then called for embellishment.

Nashville PredatorsNashville, 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.
