  • Stat Line Of The Night – 1/19/12 – Pekka Rinne

    Stat Line Of The Night – 1/19/12 – Pekka Rinne

    Entering last night Nashville Predators’ goaltender Pekka Rinne had won his last five games in a row, and 14 of this last 16 games.  He was easily one of the hottest goaltenders in the league at the moment, and the Columbus Blue Jackets couldn’t seem to find a way to cool him down. The Blue […]

  • Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Gagner vs. Halischuk — 11/22/11

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Gagner vs. Halischuk — 11/22/11

    Sam Gagner and Matt Halischuk’s second period bout during last night’s game between the Edmonton Oilers and the Nashville Predators was by no means an overly-exciting fight.  But when you consider the fact that it was Halischuk’s first career fight and Gagner’s first fight of the season, we can’t help but give both players props […]

    Predators Fan Kicks Leafs’ Joffrey Lupul Through The Glass (Video)

    Here is an interesting video.  It may be from last Thursday, but I just so happened to stumble across it today on YouTube.  It comes from a game between the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Nashville Predators at Bridgestone Arena.  After being called for a penalty, Leafs forward Joffrey Lupul stood along the boards with […]

  • Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — McGrattan vs. Boll — 11/19/11

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — McGrattan vs. Boll — 11/19/11

    There was plenty of action during Saturday night’s game between the Columbus Blue Jackets and the Nashville Predators, as overtime was needed in order for the Preds to record the 4-3 victory.  However, despite all of the goals that were scored, perhaps the most entertaining part of the game came in the first minute, as […]

  • Craig Smith Puts It Up And Over The Empty Net (Video)

    Craig Smith Puts It Up And Over The Empty Net (Video)

    In the game of hockey, shooting the puck over the net from inside the goal grease is probably harder than simply shooting it into the back of the net.  With that being said, I don’t expect anyone to be applauding the Nashville Predators’ Craig Smith for accomplishing that difficult feat during last night’s game against […]

  • Stat Line Of The Night — 11/9/11 — Craig Smith

    Stat Line Of The Night — 11/9/11 — Craig Smith

    In a rematch of last year’s Western Conference first round playoff series between the Nashville Predators and the Anaheim Ducks, the Preds were looking for a similar result against their foes from California.  They would get the result that they were looking for, thanks in large part to a player who wasn’t involved in last […]

  • Stat Line Of The Night — 11/3/11 — Pekka Rinne

    Stat Line Of The Night — 11/3/11 — Pekka Rinne

    To say that Pekke Rinne had quite the day yesterday would be an understatement.  In addition to celebrating his 29th birthday, the Predators goaltender signed the biggest contract extension in team history when he was inked to a seven-year extension worth $49-million.  And to top it all off, later that night he stopped all 35 […]

    Picture Of The Day: Say Goodbye To The Sexiest Catfish Clean-up Crew

    Now that the Nashville Predators have been eliminated from the 2011 Stanley Cup Playoffs, perhaps the one thing I will miss most – besides Carrie Underwood, of course – is their lovely catfish clean-up crew.  When was the last time you saw a lovely lady clean a giant, slimy, six-pound catfish from the ice with […]

  • Carrie Underwood Sheds A Tear Following Nashville Loss (Video)

    Carrie Underwood Sheds A Tear Following Nashville Loss (Video)

    Last night the Vancouver Canucks made Carrie Underwood cry after eliminating the Nashville Predators from the 2011 Stanley Cup Playoffs.  For that, I can’t help but hate the entire Canucks organization. Now that we will no longer get to see the gorgeous country music singer cheering for her husband, Mike Fisher, in the stands at […]

    Kevin Bieksa Wants “Shots Shots Shots Shots Shots Shots” (Video)

    The Vancouver Canucks entered Game 6 in Nashville last night needing a win to end their second-round series and move onto the Western Conference Finals for the first time since 1994.  They held a 2-1 lead after two periods, but with only nine shots on goal at that point, and an embarrassing total of two […]

  • The Canucks’ Green Men Make The Trip To Nashville (Video)

    The Canucks’ Green Men Make The Trip To Nashville (Video)

    Should the Green Men stay, or should they go? That has been one of the great debates of the 2011 Stanley Cup playoffs thus far, and although the Nashville Predators organization decided to send in a formal complaint asking the league to prevent the Green Men from distracting their players in the penalty box at […]

    Cameraman Gets Run Over During Predators Introduction (Video)

    It was quite the scene leading up to Game 3 of the Western Conference second-round match-up between the Vancouver Canucks and the Nashville Predators.  First off, there was the Preds fans, who packed themselves into Bridgestone Arena in their yellow shirts, waving their yellow towels, and showing everyone that hockey is alive and well in […]
