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...

Game Preview: Nashville Predators @ Toronto Maple Leafs 11/16/21

Photo by Frederick Breedon/ The Preds are back on the road. The Nashville Predators are back on the road tonight, looking to extend a hot last few weeks of play with this visit to Toronto. The Nashville Predators For a refreshing change, Matt Duchene and Mikael Granlund are tied with Roman Josi for the team points lead with 16, with Duchene’s nine goals leading the team easily and Ryan Johansen and Tanner Jeannot rounding out the top five scorers. Juuse Saros seems to have shaken off his annual slow start. We’ve had intervals of hope before over the last few seasons...

Predators 4, Coyotes 1 : The Big Guns Keep on Firin’

Photo by John Russell/NHLI via Josi gets four points, Granlund and Duchene stay red-hot as Nashville gets 8th win in 10 games One Big Thing It’s amazing how good your team can look if the people you pay to be your best players are... well... actually your best players. Matt Duchene, Mikael Granlund, and Roman Josi all found the back of the net for Nashville in Saturday’s 4-1 win over the Arizona Coyotes. Each of those guys are currently averaging a point-per-game or better. Josi had a four-point night, just two nights after Granlund had one of his own in St....

On The Forecheck Podcast, Ep. 24: Matt Duchene SZN

Duchene’s rise, Benning’s solidarity, Rinne’s retirement, and more! The Nashville Predators are trucking along on their six-game road trip, and the On The Forecheck Podcast crew is back to break it all down. In this week’s edition, Nick and Shaun discuss the important topics of the week, including Snoopy and Woodstock, Free Bird, and jersey numbers. Oh, and there are also some sidenotes on the Predators too, if that interests you. Has Matt Duchene finally hit his stride with the Predators? Why Mikael Granlund might be in store for a huge week. The Philippe Myers...

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 vs. Edmonton Oilers 11/3/21 Preview: Oil Country

Photo by Brett Holmes/Icon Sportswire via The Preds venture into oil country tonight to face the Oilers. 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...
