Big Win and Back Home

March 4, 2019 - 8:32 AM ET

Good start, bad second, great third, shootout win… Eight words to describe last night’s 3-2 win over the Minnesota Wild in St. Paul. The Predators showed solid offensive chances, the power play generated more chances than we have seen in awhile and Juuse Saros was just spectacular again. A l...

Game Night in Smashville - Saluting our Heroes

March 5, 2019 - 8:22 AM ET

The Predators are back home after getting the month of March started with a split. A loss in Winnipeg and a win in Minnesota… both games where the Predators played well and both games where the power play showed some signs of life. The Predators had meetings only yesterday however I do expect some...

Joey Does It Again!

March 6, 2019 - 8:05 AM ET

For the second time in the back-to-back against Minnesota, Ryan Johansen posts a filthy shootout goal to give the Predators a badly needed two points. Last night’s 5-4 win over the Wild in front of a raucous crowd at Bridgestone Arena saw a back and forth affair that is starting to approach playof...

Off Day Thoughts and Notes

March 7, 2019 - 8:27 AM ET

After a day off yesterday, the Nashville Predators will practice at Centennial at 11am both today and Friday. Much needed time to finish the integration of the new acquisitions and fine tune a few things. With the schedule easing up a bit (at least from a number of games perspective) the team will...

Hitting the Road

March 11, 2019 - 9:06 AM ET

After a disappointing loss to the Carolina Hurricanes on Saturday night, the Predators head west in their search for consistency and points. Fortunately for Nashville, both Winnipeg and St. Louis haven’t taken full advantage of their games in hand... yet. For the Blues, since their unbeaten...

Game Night - "Desperation" Time?

March 12, 2019 - 11:00 AM ET

“We have to be on our toes and play every game like it’s our last.” That was the quote from Pekka Rinne yesterday before Nashville headed out to California… oh… and here’s another one… "We have to play with a lot of desperation is these last 12 games." And let the choir say...

Desperate... and getting serious

March 13, 2019 - 2:41 PM ET

From yesterday’s blog… “We have to be on our toes and play every game like it’s our last.” That was the quote from Pekka Rinne yesterday before Nashville headed out to California… oh… and here’s another one… "We have to play with a lot of desperation is these last 12 game...

Coming home with 4 of 6

March 17, 2019 - 9:48 AM ET

From my last blog... As my mom used to say… “It’s not the IQ… it’s the I Will.” It appears that the "I Will" is back and just in time. Amazing how a couple of good efforts change the direction of a team. Last night’s win over the San Jose Sharks at the Shark Tank feature...
