Game Preview #21 - Short Memories, Bounce Back

The Jackets need to put last night behind them and get ready for a big test tonight at home. Blue Jackets vs. Predators - 7:00 PMGame Faceoff We don't know much about the lineup tonight, as the team got home around 2:00 AM and had no morning skate. We found out that David Savard's game misconduct was rescinded, and we also found out that Michael Chaput has been sent back to the AHL. I expect Sergei Bobrovsky to get both games at home this weekend. Otherwise, I'm not going to spend much time breaking this one down. Nashville is good. They score. They still have Pekka Rinne. They still play...

Power Play: Nashville survives Anaheim assault

Nashville takes the season series against Anaheim with a less-than-impressive 3-2 win against the Ducks. Hopefully, this won't be a preview of any first-round matchup in the postseason. This game may not have felt like much of a win for the Nashville Predators (11-3-3), however they scored just enough goals to best the Anaheim Ducks (6-9-4) who outplayed Nashville for the majority of the contest. SLAP SHOTS Predators increasing their physicality One thing you can't really say about the Predators for the past season is that they've been one of the more physically-imposing teams in the NHL....

Wednesday's Dump & Chase: The Escape

It wasn't pretty, but sometimes you take what the other team gives you and survive the day. Anaheim threw everything they had against Nashville, and the Predators held their lead.

GAMER: Rinne Robs Ducks, Anaheim Drops 3-2 Decision In Nashville

Predators goalie makes 38 saves to steal win in regular season series finale. The late game push that had been missing for the Anaheim Ducks in the early part of the season was there, but Pekka Rinne was simply better. The Finnish goalie made 38 saves as the Nashville Predators hung on over the final two periods to upend the Ducks 3-2 Tuesday night at Bridgestone Arena. "He was an All Star goalie tonight, no doubt. He controls the puck so well, for us to get 40 shots the way he controls the puck is quite an accomplishment, but we've got to find a way to score goals when we need to score...

Pekka Rinne robs Carl Hagelin twice on a single breakaway, is not human

As if there were ever any doubt. Seeing Pekka Rinne unlock a cheat code and stop pucks in remarkable ways will never get old. Midway through the second period of Tuesday night's game, Anaheim Ducks' forward Carl Hagelin found himself on a shorthanded breakaway with miles of space between himself and Rinne. Not only did the Preds' netminder stop him cold, he dove to keep Hagelin from depositing a second opportunity. Hagelin has tons of speed, and that breakaway was nerve-wracking just by itself. But that rebound looked like it had Rinne dead to rights. Normally, we'd say something...

Maple Leafs' Holland happy to help

When it came to his turn as the Leafs’ fifth shooter in the shootout Thursday night in Nashville, Peter Holland knew where to go for some advice on beating Predators goaltender Pekka Rinne. Before retrieving the puck at centre ice, he asked former Predator and current Leaf Nick Spaling for a tip or two — not that he got much.

Ottawa Senators lose 7-5 to the Nashville Predators in a scoring frenzy

In the highest scoring game of this NHL season, the Senators let go of the lead twice, falling to the Predators in Nashville. The Ottawa Senators rolled into Music City on Tuesday night to face off against the Nashville Predators. Coming off a late-game collapse against Carolina over the weekend, the Sens needed to regroup. Craig Anderson got the start for Ottawa, while (no surprise) Pekka Rinne started in net for Nashville. Fans got their wish in the opening moments of the game, when the infamous duo of Jared Cowen and Mark Borowiecki separated. Cowen was paired with Cody Ceci, while...

Without Zach Parise, Minnesota's forwards couldn't solve Pekka Rinne

The Wild had 6 power plays last night, and scored on 2 of them. It's disappointing to miss on 4/6, but that was not the real problem last night. Parise Injury? Last night had two distinct "moments" that stick out as pivotal. The first is the injury of Zach Parise at the hands of James Neal. The hit was a bad one from behind, and Parise's knee took the brunt of the damage. It was not, strictly speaking, illegal (though compelling arguments can be made for either charging or checking from behind, as per page 67 of the NHL Rule Book). Neal was running around all game, and Zach's injury was...

Wild Fall to Perds on Controversial 3rd Goal

The Wild lost in controversial fashion despite a pair of power play goals from the blue line. The Wild came into the game perfect on home ice. They played the Nashville Predators, who have been on fire this season, given their impressive forward corps, elite blue line, and Pekka Rinne (AKA: Destroyer of Dreams). The big story of the game is, of course, the loss of Zach Parise. In the first period, Parise took a hard hit to the back of the torso and back of the knee from James Neal. Parise left injured, returned for part of the first, but would leave permanently with just a few minutes left...
