Game Preview: Nashville Predators vs. Boston Bruins 12/02/22

Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports More Forsberg magic? The Nashville Predators returned home after a quick one-game trip to Colorado for another three-game homestand that started against the Columbus Blue Jackets. It could not have gone much better. The Preds won 6-0 on the back of four goals from Filip Forsberg ad a perfect night from Juuse Saros. Now, in the second game of the Preds’ stay in town, they will welcome yet another Eastern Conference foe, this time the Boston Bruins. Nashville Predators Most all of the attention from Tuesday night’s beatdown of...

Nashville Predators 6, Columbus Blue Jackets 0: Forsberg’s four boost Preds to win

Photo by John Russell/NHLI via Juuse Saros got his first shutout of the season in the win. The Nashville Predators returned home after a bruising road loss to the Colorado Avalanche, facing the Columbus Blue Jackets at Bridgestone Arena. The Jackets had won three of their last four, though their most recent game on Saturday was a loss to the St. Louis Blues, while the Preds had had a very up-and-down week. The Jackets started off with an early push, and the teams traded chances for the first five minutes, at which point Filip Forsberg scored from a very sharp angle to...

Tuesday’s Dump & Chase: The “Should We Re-Sign Filip Forsberg” Edition

Tuesday’s Dump & Chase: The “Should We Re-Sign Filip Forsberg” Edition

Photo by John Russell/NHLI via The future of Nashville’s mustachio’d muchacho is debated. Nashville Predators News & Notes Vingan: Why the Predators should not re-sign Filip Forsberg | The AthleticVingan’s words on Forsberg. Context is important, though. Compared to other similarly skilled forwards who have come up through the Predators’ system, Forsberg has few peers. Among top-line wingers in the NHL, however, Forsberg is not elite. He might not even be great anymore. There is nothing wrong with just being good, but overpaying such players can lead to...

The Nashville Predators finish off their homestand tonight against the New Jersey Devils. Wednesday’s game saw the Preds losing a slog of a game to the Vegas Golden Knights; they’re hoping to get another win under their belts this evening before going back on the road to face the high-octane Colorado Avalanche tomorrow. The Nashville Predators Filip Forsberg is back, and back in style. That’s about the only bright spot the Preds were able to take...

Game Preview: Nashville Predators vs. Vegas Golden Knights 11/24/21

Photo by Danny Murphy/Icon Sportswire via Almost-Thanksgiving hockey Nashville Predators The Preds broke a mini-slump on Monday with a big win against Anaheim. It’s always nice to beat the Ducks. Yakov Trenin, Ryan Johansen, and Mikael Granlund all scored for the Predators. Juuse Saros got a very nice win in net. Tonight, I wouldn’t expect too many lineup changes. Tommy Novak ought to remain in the lineup, and I doubt Filip Forsberg is ready to return from injury just yet. The Predators are comfortably in a wild-card spot in the Western Conference....can they...

What’s going on with Mattias Ekholm?

What’s going on with Mattias Ekholm?

Photo by Gerry Thomas/NHLI via The dubbed “Swedish Redwood” has struggled so far, but how bad is it really? Two big contracts loomed over the heads of Nashville Predators management over the offseason. First, the star forward of the team, Filip Forsberg, has a contract that is ending after the 2021-22 season. He will be an unrestricted free agent, and although there’s still time to re-sign him, his future is very vague. The other contract that management needed to worry about completing was for star defenseman Mattias Ekholm. The deadline to sign him to an...

Photo by Danny Murphy/Icon Sportswire via The slumping Preds take on an old rival tonight. The Nashville Predators had a rough week in Canada, losing to the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Montreal Canadiens in a pair of dispiriting games. Now they’re home again and facing the Anaheim Ducks, hoping to get the season back on track. The Nashville Predators With most of the roster healthy again, and the team back at home this week, the Preds have to be feeling pretty good about this game. It would be great if they had Filip Forsberg back, but they’ve been making do. Matt...

Game Preview: Nashville Predators vs. Dallas Stars 11/10/21: Texas!

Photo by Melissa Tamez/Icon Sportswire via The Preds are in the Lone Star State tonight. Nashville Predators It’s no secret that Nashville and Dallas don’t like each other...there’s a bit of animosity between these teams. Tonight’s game is the first of a back-to-back set, so we should see both Saros and Rittich. The Preds placed Filip Forsberg and Nick Cousins on injured reserve on Tuesday and recalled Mathieu Olivier and Michael McCarron from the Admirals. Olivier and McCarron are both large bodies and I’ll go ahead and assume that part of tonight’s plan...

Preview: Nashville Predators vs. Vancouver Canucks 11/5/21: British Columbia and Late Games

Photo by Andy Devlin/NHLI via A 9:00 puck drop, ew. Nashville Predators The Preds dropped their last game against the Oilers, so tonight’s game is largely about response. Do they go into tonight’s game with energy and effort, or do they focus too much on Tuesday’s game? Mikael Granlund and Matt Duchene are spicy hot. We’ll expect Filip Forsberg to be out of action for a bit, and I’m hoping guys like Phil Tomasino and Yakov Trenin can get going. I know I mentioned these two just the other night, but I’m mystified at Tomasino playing on the third or fourth...

Nashville Predators Our most handsome captain leads the team in points with 9 (3 goals, 6 assists). Mikael Granlund, Filip Forsberg, Ryan Johansen, and Matt Duchene are also top on the leaderboard...as they ought to be. Guys like Tanner Jeannot and Colton Sissons are contributing, too. This is...exactly what we want to see? I’d like to see Yakov Trenin and Phil Tomasino pot some more goals on this road trip, and Edmonton’s defense might offer some opportunities...
