Nashville PredatorsNashville, TN – The Nashville Predators continue to struggle finding the back of the net, falling behind early, then chasing the game and unable to hold off the Winnipeg Jets, 2-1.

The Predators have been falling behind early in their last series of games and just haven’t been able to rally back for a win.  The effort has been there, but the goal tending against them has been superior.  Tonight it was Connor Hellebuyck for Winnipeg that held off the Predators.

Nashville Predators win a thriller against the Vancouver Canucks, 3-2, sit atop the central division

 

Nashville PredatorsNashville, TN – Things looked pretty bleak for the Nashville Predators tonight after the first intermission, trailing the lowly Vancouver Canucks, 2-0.  With Nashville in a real battle for the central division title of the Western Conference, and the St. Louis Blues bearing down on the Preds, this game had real significance. 

Not only does Nashville want to win their division, but they want home ice advantage throughout the Stanley Cup playoffs and it all seemed to be slipping away in this game tonight.

First, Markus Granlund backhanded the puck past Nashville goalie Pekka Rinne after taking a perfect pass from Quinn Hughes and the Canucks led 1-0.
