Nashville Predators Top Five 2016 Stanley Cup Playoff Moments

Let's look back at the good times, shall we? The Game 7 loss to San Jose is still fresh on everyone's minds, but how about we reminisce on the successes the Predators had throughout their 14-game playoff run and look back at their top five moments from the Stanley Cup Playoffs. 5. The Mad Scramble This was by far the most bizarre play during the Preds' post season run and maybe of the entire Stanley Cup Playoffs up to this point. Everyone that was watching this game immediately held their breath as Joel Ward got Pekka Rinne to bite on the fake and went for the wrap around. The entire net...

Nashville Predators 4, San Jose Sharks 3 (3 OT): Thank You, Pekka Rinne

The real fun didn't really start until Friday morning as the Sharks and Preds battled their way into a triple overtime contest before the Preds came out on top. The Predators were due an overtime playoff game seeing as how they did not have one through their first 10 post season games this year and they got one, and then some, on Thursday night against the Sharks. It could have been a boring game that backed it's way into overtime but that was not the case whatsoever. The Preds jumped out to an extremely early lead then fell behind late in the third period but managed to tie things up and...

Nashville Predators 4, San Jose Sharks 1: No Ribeiro, No Problem

Mike Ribeiro being a healthy scratch is a move Predators fans have been suggesting for some time now. With the Predators finding so much success this game, I don't think Laviolette can go back. The Predators haven't been able to play a full 60 minutes or capitalize when they needed to in both games 1 & 2. But tonight... they did both this game. Their top players played well, their special teams were fantastic, and Pekka Rinne was solid in net. All in all it was a great game for the Predators and they did it without Mike Ribeiro's playmaking, penalties, and lack of battle. Those top two...

Sharks lose 4-1; series lead trimmed to 2-1

The NHL’s best road team started off well with an early goal, but the Sharks fell 4-1 to Nashville after the Predators scored four straight goals to win Game 3 of a Western Conference semifinal on Tuesday night. The loss ended the Sharks’ four-game playoff win streak and narrowed their lead in the series to 2-1. Patrick Marleau’s first-period goal gave San Jose a 1-0 lead, but Nashville answered with goals by James Neal, Shea Weber, Colin Wilson and Filip Forsberg. After a turnover inside Nashville’s blue line, Patrick Marleau stickhandled around Pekka Rinne before putting the puck...

Handshake Line: Ducks Deal with Game Seven Defeat... Again

Game seven ended how so many have before at Honda Center. For the fourth consecutive year, the Anaheim Ducks are defeated at home in the final game of the series - this time at the hands of the Nashville Predators. If I said it once, I've said it a million times: I didn't want to face Pekka Rinne and the Predators in the first round. This is why. Because here we all sit, mourning a Cinderella story cut short. The clock didn't even hit midnight, but our carriage is back to being a pumpkin, our beautiful ball gown and fairy tale are both gone. Now maybe people will resent my cliche...
