PREDATORS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Kings-Predators Preview

The Nashville Predators have relied heavily on their usual defensive intensity to key their recent surge. They might receive a good test from the Los Angeles Kings, who haven't had much trouble putting the puck in the net recently but have struggled away from home all season. The Predators go for their third straight win in the series when they face the visiting Kings for the first...

Pekka Rinne And Roberto Luongo Trade Save-Of-The-Year Candidates

Nashville Predators goalie Pekka Rinne and Florida Panthers goalie Roberto Luongo traded some phenomenal save-of-the-year candidates on Saturday night. Rinne did it with his paddle and Luongo did it with his blocker, but both saves were remarkable and displayed major athleticism. I’ll give the nod to Luongo for the better save because his was made […] The post Pekka Rinne And...

Nashville Predators 2 – Florida Panthers 1

Optimistic Thoughts: The Predators came out determined to avoid losing two in a row for the first time this season. From puck drop Nashville controlled the pace and kept the Panthers under attack in their own zone for most of the game.  Roberto Luongo stood tall  for Florida to somehow keep the game scoreless until a lucky bounce came Nashville’s way by Colin Wilson from behind...

Balanced Preds still running strong near the NHL quarter-pole mark

NASVHILLE, Tenn. -- Before the season started, Predators coach Peter Laviolette figured it would take roughly 20 games for everything new to start becoming routine. If that's the case, then the Predators (12-5-2) are well ahead of the curve, as the quarter-pole of the 82-game season nears. In fact, they're off to one of the fastest starts in franchise history, leading the...

History not in Nashville’s favor after lopsided victories

Thursday night’s game against the Ottawa Senators hinted a of a post-blowout hangover and it didn’t disappoint. Rather than a full 60 minute letdown against the Senators, Nashville instead only faltered for a single twenty minute segment: the second period. Leaving the first period with a 1-0 lead against Ottawa, for all intents and purposes a fairly solid start to the game...

With new coach, Nashville Predators are preying on the NHL

Much praise has been heaped on Barry Trotz for the coaching job he did during his 15 seasons in Nashville. He was the first coach the franchise had ever known and they became known for playing a dull shut down style. Never having elite scoring talent the Predators under Barry Trotz effectively won close games and amassed 557 wins over 1196 games. However with the change to Peter...

Nashville Off to Impressive Start

#459206512 / gettyimages.com There were two things done this past offseason that showed that the Nashville Predators were trying to move into a new direction.

The other was the acquiring of 40-goal scorer James Neal. Under...

Nashville Predators 2 – Ottawa Senators 3

Optimistic Thoughts: Well, we started strong. There didn’t seem to a let down after the rout in Toronto because the Preds came out flying, and Weber blasted one top shelf on the early power play. Nashville controlled the play in the first period and looked to be continuing their winning ways. But then…. the second period happened. Carter Hutton actually played a pretty decent...

Alexander Radulov and What Could Have Been

Alexander Valerievich Radulov is many things. Generational hockey talent, former first round draft pick, goofball.

Filip Forsberg front runner in Calder Trophy race

I have to admit, I am not at all surprised to see Filip Forsberg as the front-runner in the Calder Trophy race. Forsberg, was ranked as the top European skater of the 2012 NHL Draft; the surprising thing to me was the fact that he landed in the Washington Capitals lap at  11th overall. I had the kid as a top-3 talent in my rankings that year. Perhaps, the most surprising thing...

New-look offense driving Predators' quick start

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Predators forward James Neal admits having a goal scorer's mentality. Then again, that's what he's being paid to do. Neal has backed it up, too, scoring 88 goals the past three seasons -- fifth-most in the NHL during the stretch -- while playing for the Penguins. But a draft-day trade brought him to the Predators, whose avowed mission under first-year...
