Nashville Predators 3, Chicago Blackhawks 2: Oh Captain, My Captain

Photo by Danny Murphy/Icon Sportswire via The Predators needed a good win to break out of their slump, and they delivered, albeit with some dramatic flair. Hey there people, welcome back to another game recap with me, Eamon. Did ya miss me? Probably not, but I’ll say you did anyway. First Period The Nashville Predators came out looking solid both ways, but a phantom slashing call on Mark Borowiecki quickly halted whatever momentum they’d built. After about a minute of puck chasing and poor decision making by the penalty kill, we had a Dylan Strome slam dunk and a...

Game Thread: Predators vs. Blackhawks 1/26/21

Photo by Jonathan Daniel/ Here’s hoping the Predators don’t embarrass themselves again tonight. The Chicago Blackhawks are rebuilding and missing several key players, but they absolutely crushed the also-rebuilding Detroit Red Wings over the weekend. The Nashville Predators are supposed to be contending and have a their full roster, but their weekend against the Dallas Stars was...bad. It was bad. Join us tonight as the Preds attempt to make it back to .500 on the season.

After a dismal end to last week, the Nashville Predators will take on the Chicago Blackhawks tonight. Will Nashville go out and right the ship against a weaker team, or will they continue to give us good reason to worry? How will the special teams fare? Can anyone besides Filip Forsberg score goals?

Nashville Predators 2, Dallas Stars 3: Penalty Kill Stymied by Stars

Photo by Andrew Dieb/Icon Sportswire via The Dallas Stars are this season’s Vancouver Canucks, and the Preds will have to face them six more times. The Nashville Predators got back on the ice at the American Airlines Center after a brutal showing Friday against the Dallas Stars that dropped them to 2-2 on the season and raised all kinds of questions about their readiness for the season. Jamie Benn, who was injured last game in an odd collision with Viktor Arvidsson, joined Tyler Seguin on the absent list for the Stars, while Rocco Grimaldi drew in instead of Mathieu...

Imagine knowing you were heading to a party and your ex was going to be there—not an ex you have fond memories of, but the ex you just can’t stand. You work out, lose those last stubborn five pounds, choose the perfect outfit, and visualize sashaying into that room and watching your ex’s jaw drop with regret and shame. That’s how I wanted Friday night against the Dallas Stars to go for the Predators. Now imagine you get to the party and as you sashay across the room you hear murmurs...

Central Shakeup: Winnipeg trades Laine, Roslovic to Columbus for Dubois

James Carey Lauder-USA TODAY Sports Nashville will now see more of Patrik Laine this season, and less in future seasons. We are less than two weeks into the 2021 NHL season and we already have our first blockbuster trade of the year—second-overall pick in the 2016 NHL draft Patrik Laine was traded from Winnipeg to Columbus for third-overall pick in the 2016 NHL draft Pierre-Luc Dubois Saturday afternoon. The move has major implications for both the Winnipeg Jets and the Columbus Blue Jackets, but for the Nashville Predators as well. With the newly aligned conferences...
