Game Preview: Nashville Predators @ Edmonton Oilers 1/27/22

Photo by Andy Devlin/NHLI via After a big win against the Seattle Kraken, the Nashville Predators continue their road trip to play the Edmonton Oilers. It’s the first game of a very short Canada swing and the second of three games against one of the two teams in Alberta. The Oilers have been a prominent part of hockey narratives over the last month. After heading into the slightly extended Christmas break with a two-game win streak and an 18-11-0 record, they came out afterward and pooped the bed. In their last nine games, they sit with a 2-5-2 record, and if we...

Milwaukee Musings: Admirals Find Some Life

Milwaukee Admirals Is Milwaukee turning a corner or is this another flash in the pan? With two big wins last week, the Admirals are riding a three-game win streak and a five-game point streak going into tonight’s matchup in Grand Rapids. At 16-18-4, and with all of their division rivals having several games in hand, this week could be a make-or-break one for Milwaukee who needs to go home with at least four out of a possible six points from the Griffins and IceHogs. Quick Hits Last week, Milwaukee recalled defender Jake McLaughlin from ECHL Florida and signed...

Nashville Predators 4, Seattle Kraken 2: Preds Prevail Despite Penalties

Nashville Predators 4, Seattle Kraken 2: Preds Prevail Despite Penalties

Steven Bisig-USA TODAY Sports Roman Josi had two points in the win, while Juuse Saros once again stopped a lot of rubber. The Nashville Predators went back on the road tonight, taking on the Seattle Kraken at Climate Pledge Arena. The game started off slowly, but then the penalties began. Cole Smith drew a hooking penalty, but the Preds were unable to convert with Vince Dunn in the penalty box. Next it was the Preds’ turn, as Mattias Ekholm took a holding penalty and then, three seconds into the penalty kill, Matt Benning was called for a trip. Jared McCann scored for...

Game Preview: Nashville Predators @ Seattle Kraken 1/25/22: Revenge Game

Photo by John Russell/NHLI via The Nashville Predators are a very different team than they were in October, but will the Kraken still have their number? Autumn seems a long time past in “hockey time” when it comes to the Nashville Predators and their season opener against the Seattle Kraken back on October 14. A Predators team that dropped their opening game 4-3 to the expansion Kraken (giving Seattle their first win in franchise history) doesn’t feel like the same team nowadays with a solid 26-14-3 record since. The Predators are looking not just for two...

Nashville Predators 4, Detroit Red Wings 1: Forsberg, Duchene impress again

Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports How about that top line? The Nashville Predators faced off tonight at 7:30 against a promising young Detroit Red Wings team. It had been a rough night for Nashville sports after a painful Titans playoff loss; everyone was hoping the Preds would provide at least a little consolation. A last-minute trip to the protocol list for Red Wings backup Thomas Greiss meant that Alex Nedeljkovic was starting his second game in two nights, after allowing five goals in last night’s loss to the Dallas Stars. The Preds, meanwhile, were missing...

Photo by Dave Reginek/NHLI via Nashville teams will be out in full force. Coming off of a big victory against the Central Division rival Winnipeg Jets, the Nashville Predators are set to take on one of the more surprising teams of the 2021-22 season, the Detroit Red Wings. The Red Wings are on the second half of a back-to-back, losing in overtime to the Dallas Stars 4-3 before traveling to the Music City. It was a valiant effort with some highlight-reel plays like Dylan Larkin’s ankle-breaking goal, but in the end, they couldn’t come out on top. Dylan Larkin...

Nashville Predators 5, Winnipeg Jets 2: Josi sets record as Saros dazzles

Steve Roberts-USA TODAY Sports Tanner Jeannot also had a very good night. The Nashville Predators got Mattias Ekholm back in the lineup tonight after struggling without him. The question on everyone’s mind was whether Ekholm’s presence would help them against the Winnipeg Jets. The first penalty came less than two minutes into the game, immediately followed by the first fight, as Tanner Jeannot cross-checked Nate Schmidt headfirst toward the boards, then answered the call when Jets defender Logan Stanley objected to the hit. The penalties evened out at seven minutes...
