Nashville Predators vs. Winnipeg Jets Preview: Just Win, Baby, Win

“Has anyone told Patrik Laine he looks like a 19-year-old Gary Busey?” | The Central Division rivals clash for the first time this season in Smashville. Time and time again, while I’m sippin’ on this gin. Al Davis said it best... just win, baby, win. One win or one loss won’t dictate a team’s entire season. But for the Nashville Predators, it seems like a win over the Winnipeg Jets tonight could do wonders for the team’s psyche. The Preds enter tonight on a four-game losing streak, and have just one win in their past seven. It’s the team’s worst stretch since losing...

North Dakota, Penn State to Play U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame Game in Nashville

Collegiate Hockey Powers Collide in Nashville While the dreams of Bridgestone Arena hosting a NCAA Frozen Four have yet to materialize, college hockey will be coming to Nashville next year. As part of the U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame celebrations, the annual collegiate game will be held on Bridgestone ice with perennial powerhouse North Dakota and one of the best offenses over the last year in Penn State.

It’s Time for the Predators’ “Come-to-Jesus Moment”

Photo by Frederick Breedon/ It’s too early to panic, but the Preds still have some glaring issues to address. If you grew up in the South, you probably know all about “come-to-Jesus moments.” It’s the old saying used to describe an intervention of sorts: a moment where a boss, your parents, your spouse, etc. sits you down and tells you “look...we still love you, and we still believe in you. But you’ve done messed up a lot lately, and if you don’t clean up your act soon, there are going to be some consequences.” For the Predators, that moment is now. “We have to do a...

Nashville Predators 2, Chicago Blackhawks 7: The Curse of Saturday Night

Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports A lot of people take Saturday off... The Nashville Predators took on the Chicago Blackhawks for some Saturday Night Hockey. The last meeting between the two teams ended in what Pekka Rinne referred to as “one of the easier shutouts” he’d been a part of. The Blackhawks looked for some revenge, while the Predators were looking for a win after a bad ending to their road trip. The first period started off with a lot of action in front of Robin Lehner. However, Chicago was the first to strike, with a goal by Erik Gustafsson off of a faceoff win...

There’s Mike Fisher’s triple-overtime winner in 2016, the Preds’ win over Anaheim that put them into the Stanley Cup Final, or maybe something sentimental like Wayne Gretzky’s only trip to Nashville back in 1999.
