Nashville Predators 0, Pittsburgh Penguins 2: This Incredible Season Is Over

Nashville Predators 0, Pittsburgh Penguins 2: This Incredible Season Is Over

The Predators couldn’t force a Game 7 tonight. This wacky, amazing, city-changing, life-altering season is over. And so the most incredible season in Nashville Predators history ends with a 2-0 loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins. In the first period, both teams traded a few solid chances, but nothing went in the net. Pekka Rinne looked sharp early on, despite some helter skelter action in front of him. Same for Matt Murray, who made a last ditch save on a James Neal shot that just barely grazed his glove. The Preds had a power play that went nowhere, but they did some good work at even...

Islanders News: Weight gains; Alan & Britney; NWHL Summit Series

Lupus?! Is it lupus?! Ah folks, Penguins 6, Predators 0. Pekka Rinne can be quite the sieve. Luckily, you can't lose a single game more than once, so hopefully Pittsburgh's scoring luck has run out for the rest of the year. There may be only one hockey game left in the season - there are a maximum of two left. The season is winding down, friends. And from there, we hit the offseason. So like my grandpa used to say when he loaded his kids into the car: "Get in, sit down, shut up, and hold on."
