Nashville Predators 3, Dallas Stars 2 (SO): Saros shines in high-stakes Preds win

Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports The Preds eked out a victory against a Stars team that’s had their number in an absolutely critical game. The Nashville Predators and Dallas Stars met up tonight in a four-point game critical to both teams’ status in the playoff race. The Stars had won their previous game, against the Florida Panthers, as had the Chicago Blackhawks—the third team chasing that spot—against the Columbus Blue Jackets, while the Predators were shut out by the Tampa Bay Lightning. This Stars/Predators game is kinda a big deal....

Playoff chances over the past fortnight.

Tanner Jeannot, recalled from the Chicago Wolves, may make his second NHL appearance tonight.

Predators If-Thens: Trade Deadline Edition

Photo by Dave Reginek/NHLI via Let’s perform a little exercise to get some predictions out there. The Nashville Predators will be one of the more interesting teams to follow for the remainder of the year; that much is certain. With the trade deadline looming, the team is in a dogfight with the Dallas Stars and Chicago Blackhawks for the final playoff spot in the Central Division. The Preds have the ability to be wholesale sellers come tomorrow, but they could also end up buying or doing a bit of both. Hell, it’s highly plausible that David Poile could stand pat and...

Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports Last night wasn’t fun. Nashville Predators Last night was rough. It was a little better because Ryan Ellis was activated off IR. It’s great to see the redbeard back on the ice. He noted in post-game interviews that he feels like this is a different team than the one he was playing with 20 games ago before his injury. This quote in particular stood out to me: “When I got hurt, every night was a battle, and we were working, but nothing was happening for us. Tonight, I mean, it felt like years past where we were just buzzing...

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports Go Preds. The Nashville Predators face the defending champion Tampa Bay Lightning this evening. The Lightning are minus Steven Stamkos, while Ryan Ellis has been taken off of injured reserve and may be returning to bolster the Preds’ lineup tonight. Earlier today, the Dallas Stars handily won their game, leaping forward in the playoff race; for the standings-watchers out there, a win tonight remains very important for the Preds’ playoff hopes.

Tim Fuller-USA TODAY Sports Also known as the “Everyone is Injured” edition. Nashville Predators The Predators are the proud owners of a playoff spot less than a week before the NHL Trade Deadline. They’re the biggest wildcard, the biggest “what if?,” and the most-injured team out there. It feels silly saying “literally everyone is hurt,” but after sticking up for his teammates on Thursday, even Mathieu Olivier is hurt. This means we could see more of David Farrance, Tyler Lewington, Michael McCarron, and possibly Rem Pitlick and Tanner Jeannot. Jeannot...

Nashville Predators 7, Detroit Red Wings 1: Arvidsson nets hatty in strong game for the Preds

Photo by Dave Reginek/NHLI via On his birthday, Arvidsson blew out the candles AND the Red Wings. After a shootout win against the Detroit Red Wings on Tuesday, the Nashville Predators faced off against Detroit once again tonight. If you thought the pre-game would mostly focus on the “Ry Jo Slo Mo” shootout goal from the previous game, you were only partially right. The injury report and lines for the Predators quickly produced shock and angst among the Predators faithful before the puck even hit the ice. While the absence of Dante Fabbro was anticipated, the news...

Tim Fuller-USA TODAY Sports Another round in the Motor City. Nashville Predators After a shootout victory, the Preds are looking for two more points tonight. I’m hoping we can see that in a decisive manner instead of a shootout, but a win is a win. The Predators are 4-0 in shootouts this season. Injuries continue to take a toll on this team. I’m hoping the injury bug leaves us alone as we continue into April. We could see Viktor Arvidsson and Luke Kunin tonight, but Dante Fabbro is unlikely.

One Big Thing Over the course of this game, I went from bored out of my mind to literally standing in my living room glued to the TV. The pace and intensity from the first period to the end of game was that big of a 180.
