Ellis scores twice to lead Predators past Coyotes 3-1

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Craig Smith has gone 22 games without a goal and hes still helping the Predators win.Ryan Ellis scored twice, Pekka Rinne made 25 saves and Smith had two assists in Nashvilles 3-1 victory over the Arizona Coyotes on Monday night.Everybody is accountable to the way they play, Predators coach Peter Laviolette said. It was really good to see Craig come back in and play the game that he did today. He had some looks, he used his speed, hes working really hard out there, but it was nice to see him cash in offensively, which hes been able to do for quite a few years now.Viktor...

Nashville Predators 3, Arizona Coyotes 1: Rinne Solid, Ellis Tallies 2

The Preds kicked off their three-game home stand in style The Predators beat the Arizona Coyotes 3-1 tonight behind a couple goals from Ryan Ellis and a nice 25 save performance from Pekka Rinne for his 28th win of the year. The first period was a snooze-fest. All you need to know is that there were a combined 9 shots on goal in 20 minutes. Luke Schenn knocked Mike Fisher into the boards at the end of the period, causing a ruckus. The second period was more eventful. Cody McLeod took exception to Schenn’s actions, and he made the Coyotes’ blue-liner know about it. A few timely placed...

Watch: Skinner Doubles Carolina’s Lead

Watch: Skinner Doubles Carolina’s Lead

Juuse Saros misplayed the puck, Lee Stempniak forced a turnover, and Jeff Skinner hit paydirt. Nashville Predators goalie Juuse Saros, playing tonight to give normal starter Pekka Rinne a breather, is having a night he’d rather forget. He’s allowed two goals on three shots, the second after Lee Stempniak forced him into a turnover behind the net. Stempniak fed Jeff Skinner in the far circle, and Skinner went upstairs to double the Carolina Hurricanes’ lead. Skinner goal pic.twitter.com/p6gtq2L1Ir— steph (@myregularface) March 18, 2017

Nashville Predators 2, Washington Capitals 1 (OT): Un-jinxing

Nashville Predators 2, Washington Capitals 1 (OT): Un-jinxing

Yes, I had to quickly change the working title of this post. Pekka Rinne makes the first stop in his 500th career game a little over five minutes in. Not a lot going on, with both teams testing the matchup and the Predators more committed than usual to net-front defense. But uh-oh, Kevin Fiala wipes out to give up a 2-on-0 and Brett Connolly opens the scoring. Not even Pekka Prime would stop that one. The first period ends with the Caps doubling up the Predators in shots and a 1-0 lead, although it felt like a fairly equal morass of blergh. The Predators come out with a bit more jump to...

James Neal's power-play goal in OT gives Predators win over Jets

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — After his Finnish countryman scored on him once, Pekka Rinne was not going to let it happen again in overtime.Rinne made a big save against Patrik Laine before James Neal scored 2:11 into the extra period to give the Nashville Predators a 5-4 victory over the slumping Winnipeg Jets on Monday night.With the Predators on a power play, Neal made a head fake at the right faceoff dot and drifted toward the low slot before firing a wrist shot by Jets goalie Connor Hellebuyck to the far side.Neals goal was his 20th of the season. He has scored in consecutive games for the first...

Ducks vs Preds BEST/WORST: Fear the Beard

Ducks vs Preds BEST/WORST: Fear the Beard

Anaheim is now tied with the Edmonton Oilers for second place in the Pacific. Best: All the Corsi Shots equal entertainment and entertainment equals a happy writer. For the second game in a row the Anaheim Ducks dominated the offensive zone. Since the puck was constantly being shot at Pekka Rinne, the Predators could do very little in the Anaheim zone. It is the recipe for success. Anaheim finished with 90 shot attempts compared to Nashville’s 50. That is some Bruce Boudreau level offense. If the Ducks continue that type of play, they will start to see bounces (like on goals one and...
