How The Preds Fill A Future Need

The season had its ups and downs that ended in a heartbreaking series lost, but through it all worth it in the end. The optimism for the future is clear as young guys stepped up to the center stage and performed while prospects continue to develop at a rapid pace in the minors.   Arguably […]


“In the Corners” Nashville vs Chicago Preview

This week we are all excited for the beginning of the NHL Playoffs. I know there will be plenty of series previews for the Predators vs Chicago Blackhawks to read so I wanted to do something a little bit different for mine. I asked one of my favorite writers that I talk Preds hockey with […]


Fizzling Into the Playoffs

The Nashville Predators are hoping that their next few weeks will erase most of the memory of these past two. They have not played well heading into the NHL post-season and in fact have lost 6 in a row. The good news is that the regular season is really about qualifying for the post one. […]

Three Reasons: Why Nashville will and won’t have a deep playoff run

The Predators may have locked a playoff spot in the Western Conference divisional semi-finals recently, but they still have plenty of work ahead if the ultimate plan is for a parade down Broadway in downtown Nashville this June.

The Central Finale Awaits

The NHL has plenty of intrigue heading into this final week of the regular season. At the forefront for fans of the Nashville Predators is just who will win the Central Division? 3 teams at the top of the Division separated by just 3 points with 3 games remaining. St. Louis sits at the top […]

Hello Playoffs Our Old Friend

The Nashville Predators have only 5 regular season games remaining. They are in the hunt still for the Central Division crown. Their play this week has proven they aren’t going anywhere. The slump is over and this team has returned to the ways that had them winning so much earlier this year. 4 games this […]


Young Prospects Are Exciting, But Caution Is Key

The past two Predator games have shown us a glimpse into the future with two promising prospects being called up from Milwaukee due to a rash of minor injuries at the big club. Viktor Arvidsson debuted on Saturday night with Colin Wilson being sidelined. On Tuesday, Matt Cullen and Viktor Stalberg fell to the injury […]


Light Week… but POINTS!

The Nashville Predators had a light week compared to their recent schedule. It was odd as a fan to have 3 straight days with no hockey. It appears it was beneficial to the Preds. They got practice time. Family time. Recovery time. All important things this time of year. Tuesday night was the “playoff” like […]
