Nashville Predators 7, Washington Capitals 2: Taking The Champs Behind The Woodshed

Hat tricks, spin-o-rama goals and flying fists. The only thing this game missed was a Preds power play goal. The Nashville Predators like seeing the Washington Capitals, at least this season. The Preds netted a season-high seven goals in a 7-2 victory over the defending Stanley Cup champions at Bridgestone Arena. In two games this season, the Predators (28-16-4, 60 points) have outscored the Capitals 13-5. North Pole, Alaska native Pheonix Copley (this is not made up, promise) started in goal for the Capitals (27-14-5, 59 points) and had to work early and often. Viktor Arvidsson beat...

Nashville Predators vs Washington Capitals Preview: Looking for Redemption

Nashville Predators vs Washington Capitals Preview: Looking for Redemption

Start at puck drop, mkay? It's the first game back after...let's call it two consecutive road trips for the Nashville Predators, since Laviolette did. That stop home between Columbus and Carolina might have been a mistake. The Washington Capitals The Capitals are coming off a two-game losing streak of their own: an OT loss to the Blue Jackets (sounds familiar) on a goal scored by Artemi Panarin from Seth Jones (sounds reeeeal familiar), followed by a blowout loss to a non-playoff team that should be better—in the Capitals' case, to the St. Louis Blues. The Caps played last night, which...

Breakdown: Nashville acquires Cole Schneider in exchange for Connor Brickley

Breakdown: Nashville acquires Cole Schneider in exchange for Connor Brickley

A team addressing an obvious need and shipping out a clear struggle? Unheard of. The Nashville Predators have traded forward Connor Brickley to the New York Rangers for forward Cole Schneider. Brickley was signed to a one-year contract by Nashville on July 1 after appearing in 44 games for the Florida Panthers last season and totaling 12 points. Although Brickley has never been a consistently prolific scorer in the AHL (he has maxed out at 47 points), he was brought in to add veteran scoring for Milwaukee and hasn’t exactly worked out. I’ve highlighted Brickley’s struggles in previous...

Predators’ Ekholm Deserves Norris Consideration

The Nashville Predators have one of the league’s best blue lines that is loaded with top level talent, so much so that they have four defensemen who could be number ones on many other teams. Ryan Ellis, Roman Josi and P.K. Subban are the most notable names in their defense corps with Mattias Ekholm often […] The post Predators’ Ekholm Deserves Norris Consideration appeared first on The Hockey Writers.

Two Prospects; Different Expectations

Two Prospects; Different Expectations

Alex Carrier was drafted with more hype, but has Frederic Allard surpassed him on the depth chart? When he was drafted 115th overall at the 2015 NHL Entry Draft, Alexandre Carrier quickly generated interest in the Predators community, and why shouldn’t he? He had just come off a 55-point season for the Gatineau Olympiques of the QMJHL and had his sights set on full-time NHL duty in a couple seasons. So, here we are: three and a half seasons later and Carrier has played two games in a Nashville jersey. What happened? Frédéric Allard was selected 78th overall the following summer, but was...

The Week That Was: Chapter 14

The Week That Was: Chapter 14

The season’s longest road trip ends with mixed results. One thing was consistent, however: Scoring four goals worked out pretty well every time. If it feels like forever since the Nashville Predators played a home game, it should. The Preds finished a season-long, six-game road trip on Sunday and will return to Bridgestone Arena for a three-game homestand beginning Tuesday. The road trip finished with a 3-1-2 record, getting eight out of a possible 12 points. It saw the return of Filip Forsberg to the lineup and a subsequent uptick in scoring (funny how that works, huh?) upon his...

Aho’s hat trick leads Canes to Sunday matinee win over Predators

Aho had four points, Ferland had two assists and a fight, and the Hurricanes picked up their seventh win in eight games on Sunday. The red-hot Carolina Hurricanes faced a tough challenge on Sunday afternoon. They had to take down a Stanley Cup-contending Nashville Predators team in an early time slot, where the Canes have struggled in recent seasons. At least it was anticipated to be a tough challenge... Behind a three-goal, four-point effort from Sebastian Aho, the Hurricanes took care of the Predators in relatively easy fashion, by the turn of a 6-3 final score. The matinee started with...
