The Little Things: Kyle Turris Makes The World Go ‘Round

The Little Things: Kyle Turris Makes The World Go ‘Round

In this week’s article, we analyze Kyle Turris’ debut, Craig Smith’s speed, and much more! After wins over the Columbus Blue Jackets, Pittsburgh Penguins, and the Washington Capitals, the Nashville Predators are suddenly one of the hottest teams in the league. Bet you didn’t expect to hear that weeks ago with a scuffling offense? But it’s true. Nashville has won five straight, and to everyone’s surprise, the Preds haven’t solely relied on Pekka Rinne to get the job done.

Nashville Predators 5, Pittsburgh Penguins 4 (SO): Turris Leads New Team to Victory

The new guy did alright in his Preds debut. Plenty of energy in Bridgestone Arena on Saturday night, as if any visit from Pittsburgh would elicit such a response. It was an entertaining game regardless, but the Predators took two points with a 4-3, shootout victory. Filip Forsberg had the winner in the shootout, and Kyle Turris’ debut was a good one with a goal, an assist and a good night in the faceoff circle. Also scoring for the Preds were Calle Jarnkrok, Craig Smith, and P.K. Subban. Per usual, Sidney Crosby was greeted with a chorus of boos, probably none louder than before his...

Kyle Turris Built a Legacy in Ottawa

Kyle Turris Built a Legacy in Ottawa

On the ice, Turris scored countless game-winning goals, but in the community is where he did his best work. In our nation, July 1 is Canada Day and the first day of NHL free agency. For the bulk of Canadians, it goes in that order; red and white face paint, followed by constant refreshing of their Twitter timeline. But on that day in 2012, it was much more the latter for president of the Capital City Condors Jim Perkins and former Senators defenseman Matt Carkner. July 1 was the inevitable departure between Ottawa’s only special needs hockey team and their beloved honorary captain. For...

Instant Analysis: The Matt Duchene Blockbuster

The centre upgrade comes at a very steep price. It’s official. After years of rumours, Joe Sakic finally sealed the deal with Pierre Dorion and David Poile to trade Matt Duchene to Ottawa. The three way trade sends Kyle Turris to Nashville and a boat load of future assets to the Avalanche. In hindsight, we should’ve seen this coming from a mile away. The three teams were ideal trade partners; Nashville needed a centre, Ottawa needed cost certainty and Duchene wanted out of Colorado. Although the Senators are a better team because of this, the trade appears to be a loss for Ottawa. In...
