Preview: Nashville Predators vs. Detroit Red Wings 4/6/21: April Points

Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports April points bring June playoffs. Nashville Predators The Preds are in Detroit tonight to (hopefully) cash in on two more points in this weird, odd, strange playoff race.

However, that big win came at a price...Viktor Arvidsson left the game with “upper body discomfort” from an apparent neck or head injury after running into Kirby Dach.

Nashville Predators 3, Chicago Blackhawks 0: We take those

Photo by Danny Murphy/Icon Sportswire via It was a bit of an ugly win, but a win nonetheless. First Period The game began with a bit of feeling out from both sides, but it was not without attrition. Matt Benning took a puck off his hand while blocking a shot on a play that instantly elicited a cry of “oh, that’s broken” from all onlookers. The Chicago Blackhawks took control from there, getting heavy traffic in front of Juuse Saros and generally making life hard for the Nashville Predators’ defense. Things were not going well, with the same old story of “the...

Nashville Predators 1, Dallas Stars 4: Not what anyone wanted

Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports Well, maybe this is what the Stars fans wanted to see, but they also get really defensive about their goal song, so who knows? What Happened It didn’t take long for the Dallas Stars to get on the scoreboard as Esa Lindell found the back of the net on the second shot of the night, getting a quick one behind Juuse Saros and putting the Nashville Predators in a 0-1 hole. The first six and a half minutes passed without the Predators registering a single shot on net. Eventually, Lindell put his team on the penalty kill as he was...

Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports Juuse Saros got the shutout and the Preds got another one in the W column. What Happened? It was a somewhat uneventful start to the period.

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports Are the Preds streaking? Are they winning? I don’t even know. Nashville Predators The Preds emerged from their road trip with shootout wins against Dallas on either end of a relatively “meh...ok?” trip. Eeli Tolvanen has placed himself in a position to succeed. When paired with Filip Forsberg and Ryan Johansen, Tolvanen has been excellent. Further, Juuse Saros has been excellent in two starts since returning from a suspected concussion. The Preds have a large amount of players in some form of injury status. Matt Duchene, Ryan Ellis,...

Nashville Predators 0, Florida Panthers 2: Saros stellar in Preds debacle

Sam Navarro-USA TODAY Sports Yikes. The Nashville Predators faced off against the Florida Panthers in a weekend rematch after a string of games that had been unsatisfactory to both teams—chippy play, embarrassing losses, and more. Juuse Saros started his second consecutive game since returning from IR, and looked sharp early. He needed to, as the Predators struggled to get anything going during the first long stretch, while the Panthers did not share that problem. About six and a half minutes in, Ben Harpur boarded Owen Tippett, and after a long hesitation the...
