Pittsburgh, PA – The Nashville Predators dropped the second game of a two game series with the Pittsburgh Penguins, 6-4, after a controversial late game penalty against the Predators.
Nashville had dug themselves out of an early deficit to tie the game at 4-4, but with less than two minutes remaining, Austin Watson was called for goalie interference after being knocked into Pittsburgh goaltender Matt Murray.
The ensuing power play was all the Penguins needed to seal the game as Jake Guentzel stuffed the winning goal past Pekka Rinne. An empty netter by Bryan Rust gave us the final score, 6-4.
Nashville, TN – The Nashville Predators showed the affects of the Christmas break tonight, as they were completely outplayed by the visiting Pittsburgh Penguins, 5-2.

Nashville, TN – The Nashville Predators got a bit of revenge Saturday night, when they defeated the defending Stanley Cup Champion Pittsburgh Penguins, 5-4 in a shoot-out.
This was the Predator’s fourth win in a row after a successful road trip, and it was quite a debut for newly acquired Kyle Turris who scored a goal and had an assist in his Smashville debut.
The Predators still had a bad taste in their mouth after falling to the Penguins in the Stanley Cup final, and losing to the Pens earlier this year.
Nashville, TN – Well it’s over. The true “Cinderella” of the National Hockey League, our Nashville Predators, have bowed out. Losing last night 2-0, the Penguins win the series and hoist Lord Stanley’s cup for the second year in a row.
I was there, and I didn’t like it one bit.
Honestly, I’m so exhausted I can barely hold my head up. This playoff series, while exciting as hell, has taken me physically, mentally and financially. I was ready for this to be over a couple of weeks ago.
I’m going to try and put all of this in perspective as best I can, without mentioning the officiating. I’ll leave that for another column.
Nashville, TN – The Nashville Predators returned from Pittsburgh down 1-2 to the Stanley Cup Champion Penguins and all the talk was about how Pekke Rinne just wasn’t on his game. That he should have made some saves that he didn’t. Even the so called “experts” agreed that Pekke just wasn’t the same goalie we had seen before.
Well guess what? The Pekke Rinne I’ve been watching in Nashville looks to be unbeatable. With the exception of the Sydney Crosby breakaway goal, the only score by Pittsburgh on the night, Pekke made superhuman saves tonight and looked to back on his most stellar form.
