Winnipeg Jets 5, Nashville Predators 0: Just Be Glad It’s Over

Winnipeg Jets 5, Nashville Predators 0: Just Be Glad It’s Over

If this had been a boxing match, they would have called it in the second. The Nashville Predators turned in a sub-par effort against the Winnipeg Jets. Here’s what happened. The first period was fast and furious. Both teams had several incredible chances. However, the Predators were lucky to have Pekka Rinne on their side...and Pekka Rinne was lucky to have the post on his. The Jets can count themselves lucky that Ryan Johansen decided to try a centering pass to Viktor Arvidsson as Connor Hellebuyck was exiting the blue paint. After the first frame, the teams were still 0-0. The second...

Pittsburgh Penguins 2, Nashville Predators 1 (SO): Rinne Stellar, Offense Stutters

Predators drop a win to the Pittsburgh Penguins in Nashville tonight. Tonight the Nashville Predators could not find an offensive groove against the Pittsburgh Penguins, going to a shootout and losing by a score of 2-1. Despite the loss, Pekka Rinne may have just played one of his best games this season, making stop after stop to keep the Predators in the game. The first period was fast paced, but neither team was able to find the net. Viktor Arvidsson set the pace right out of the gate with a chance on Pittsburgh goaltender Matt Murray. Opportunities were traded back and forth, but nothing...

Nashville Predators Viktor Arvidsson One of NHL’s Best Kept Secrets

Nashville Predators Viktor Arvidsson One of NHL’s Best Kept Secrets

Despite missing 23 games due to injury, Nashville Predators forward Viktor Arvidsson is on pace for a career season. Appearing in only 49 games, he's eclipsed the 30 goal mark. At even-strength, Arvidsson ranks among the league's most prolific scorers. Looking at contracts around the NHL for players producing at similar rates, his $4.25 million AAV is a fraction of the price many of his peers are paid. Taking a deeper look at the numbers and comparable contracts, Viktor Arvidsson appears to be one of the league's more underappreciated players. Predators Viktor Arvidsson Is a Great Deal If...

Predators 4, Sharks 2: Sharks fall prey to Nashville

Viktor Arvidsson took two bites out of the Sharks The Sharks failed to clinch a playoff spot or regain first place in the Western Conference for the second game in a row, after falling to the Predators, 4-2. The Sharks allowed the first and last goals of the night, but showed fight between those two markers. It was an improvement from Thursday against Florida, and the minimum goal every game is constant improvement, right? The Predators scored just over a minute in and held that lead into the first intermission. Midway through the first period, Joe Pavelski left the ice with an apparent...

Nashville Predators vs. Los Angeles Kings Preview: Shenanigans

Another day, another struggling California team. Nashville Predators The Predators figured it out a bit on Tuesday evening. Some power play goals by Filip Forsberg weren’t enough, however. Viktor Arvidsson skated on a line without Forsberg and Ryan Johansen, likely in an effort to get Mikael Granlund going. With Pekka Rinne starting against the Ducks, I’d expect to see Juuse Saros tonight against the Kings. The Predators really need a solid win tonight to put them on the right foot before they face the Sharks on Saturday evening. Los Angeles Kings It’s no secret the Kings have...

Nashville Predators 2, Anaheim Ducks 3: Forsberg’s Late Effort Not Enough, Preds Suffer Embarrassing Loss

Nashville Predators 2, Anaheim Ducks 3: Forsberg’s Late Effort Not Enough, Preds Suffer Embarrassing Loss

It’s like the Ducks finally got tired of losing to the Preds in the playoffs, and now we all have to suffer. The Nashville Predators began the final California road trip of the regular season in Anaheim, playing the Ducks in a late-night tilt just after the switch back to Daylight Savings Time. For those who’d stay awake, a real disappointment was in store. Filip Forsberg rejoined the team after missing Saturday due to a presumed body injury, but Viktor Arvidsson took a spin on the second line, leaving Wayne Simmonds to play across from Forsberg on Ryan Johansen’s other wing. Sadly,...

Nashville Predators vs. Anaheim Ducks Preview: Preds Fly Together

The west coast road trip begins in Anaheim tonight. Road trip time. Nashville Predators Well, practice for the Predators was a snappy and upbeat affair on Monday. Viktor Arvidsson was missing from practice, but the team has made no announcements about an injury. I’d expect him to play unless we see something from the team today. The Predators are a known quantity to us OTFers by now. The 30th-best power play has seen a bit of new life recently thanks to Brian Boyle, but the Predators have been maddeningly inconsistent over their last several games. It’s now or never if the Predators...

Nashville Predators 3, Winnipeg Jets 5: Nashville’s Early Lead Erased in Manitoba

Nashville Predators 3, Winnipeg Jets 5: Nashville’s Early Lead Erased in Manitoba

The Preds had an early lead chipped away by a determined Winnipeg squad. In Mikael Granlund’s first game as a Nashville Predator, the Predators squared off against the Winnipeg Jets at Bell MTS Place in Manitoba. Pekka Rinne started in net for Nashville. The Jets were first on the power play after the Predators were whistled for too many men. The Nashville penalty killers were successful and Winnipeg was limited to a few shots. With the teams back to even strength, Viktor Arvidsson found the back of the net with just over 4 minutes remaining in the first period. It was refreshing to see...
