Watch Blood Orange Play A Lovely Solo “Jewelry” On Black Power Live Broadcast

Devonté Hynes, the man who records as Blood Orange, is usually one of the busiest, most prolific collaborators on the landscape. During the quarantine era, Hynes has been relatively quiet; we haven't posted anything he's done since he showed up on the Avalanches' single "We Will Always Love You" back in February. But … More »

Salesforce stock is taking a hit today after lighter guidance in yesterday’s earning’s report

In spite of a positive quarter with record revenue that beat analyst estimates, Salesforce stock was taking a hit today because of lighter guidance. Wall Street is a tough audience. The stock was down $8.29/share or 4.58% as of 2:15 pm ET. The guidance, which was a projection for next quarter’s earnings, was lighter than what the analysts on Wall Street expected. While Salesforce was projecting revenue for next quarter in the range of $4.89 to $4.90 billion, according to CNBC, analysts had ex...

Devils Need to Target Gallant, Gronborg in Coaching Search

With the NHL’s 24-team, return-to-play format beginning to move forward, the New Jersey Devils’ 2019-20 season is over, meaning it’s time to begin focusing on next season. Ownership has two significant tasks at-hand: hiring a new general manager and head coach. And the latter seems it’s beginning to shape. In his latest edition of 31 Thoughts, Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman reported the Devils are considering four candidates for their head coaching gig — Peter Laviolette, Gerard Gallant, John ...

Devils’ Bratt Key to Making Them Contenders

Jesper Bratt was supposed to be a major factor for the New Jersey Devils in 2019-20. That happened eventually, but it was a tale of two seasons for the former sixth-round pick from Sweden. He finished with 32 points in 60 games, which comes out a 44-point pace over 82 games. But an overwhelming majority of those points came after the team fired head coach John Hynes on Dec. 3. Here’s a look back at his season and what lies ahead for him 2020-21.  Bratt’s Topsy-Turvy Season To say Bratt h...

Nashville Predators Free Agency Preview

The Nashville Predators are at somewhat of a crossroads this upcoming offseason with two of their key players being pending free agents forwards –  28-year old Mikael Granlund, and 30-year-old Craig Smith. There are always high hopes in the Music City with a team full of talent, as the core includes perennial 60-point scorer Filip Forsberg, 2019 acquisition Matt Duchene, and possibly the best defensive duo in the NHL in Roman Josi and Ryan Ellis.

Predators: Will We Ever Know Who They Are in 2019-20?

According to TSN, the regular season remains the NHL’s top priority. Sources report that Gary Bettman spoke with the board of governors and “reiterated the league’s preference and its priority to try and have some regular season games before a playoff.” There have been many scenarios batted around in an attempt to find a solution to conclude the regular season in the fairest and most effective way possible, from setting the playoff field based on points percentage to rolling every team back ...

Predators: Revisiting the Mikael Granlund/Kevin Fiala Trade

When winger Mikael Granlund was traded to the Nashville Predators from the Minnesota Wild in exchange for Kevin Fiala at the 2018-19 trade deadline, there was a clear winner in the trade: the Predators. They secured a 27-year-old, top-line winger in Granlund, who still had another season remaining under contract at $5.75 million. In return, they traded away Fiala, a young and promising winger who was selected 11th overall in 2014 by the Predators and was in his last season of his entry-level con...

Devils Benefited From a Goose Invasion

There’s no doubt plenty of hockey writers, including myself, thought the New Jersey Devils won the 2019 offseason. They acquired P.K. Subban from the Nashville Predators for close to nothing. They also drafted Jack Hughes at the 2019 Entry Draft and signed Wayne Simmonds in free agency.  Of those additions, only Hughes showed any promise. Subban had the worst season of his career, and the Devils ended up trading Simmonds to the Buffalo Sabres at the trade deadline. But there’s one offseason a...

Predators: Evaluating Matt Duchene’s First Season in Nashville

Matt Duchene’s first season with the Nashville Predators was not what general manager David Poile had hoped for when he signed the 28-year-old forward away from the Columbus Blue Jackets last summer. Duchene was without question the second-best unrestricted free agent on the market, after Artemi Panarin, and he was rewarded with a seven-year, $56 million contract. The Predators, with little depth behind Ryan Johansen, were in desperate need of a proven center. Kyle Turris could not be relied upo...

Predators May Have Their Future Backup Goalie in Ingram

It has been known for a while now that Juuse Saros is the Nashville Predators’ future goalie. The young Finn has backed up long-time Predators’ great Pekka Rinne for the past three-plus seasons, waiting, learning and developing. But with a career spanning more than 10 seasons, Rinne is clearly on the tail end of his NHL journey. Especially of late, Predators’ fans have been given a good look at what the future could hold. Saros has received many starts — 8 in the past 10 games to be exact — ...

Devils See Notable Progress for Severson

The New Jersey Devils’ blue line needs some retooling this summer, but that doesn’t mean they don’t have pieces they can build around. One defenseman who should be part of the solution is Damon Severson. Like many of the team’s players, he got off to a slow start this season. But his play took off after the team fired John Hynes as their head coach on Dec. 3.  The 2019-20 campaign may not have reached its official end, but there’s no guarantee play resumes after the league suspended action du...

Devils’ Blackwood Deserves to Be Calder Finalist

There weren’t a lot of positives for the New Jersey Devils before the NHL suspended play because of the coronavirus. But the team was beginning to win some games, as they were 11-5-5 over their last 21 contests. A significant reason for that was the emergence of goaltender Mackenzie Blackwood, who went 8-1-2 with a save percentage (SV%) of .941 over his final 11 games played. Had not it been for Blackwood, the Devils would likely have been heading for a similar point-pace as the Detroit Red W...

Predators’ John Hynes: A Check-in

Nashville Predators’ head coach John Hynes was approaching his 30th game for his new team. Yeah 30, time flies, right? The 30th time behind the Predators’ bench was scheduled for Mar. 14 against the Columbus Blue Jackets. But, with the league “on pause” due to health concerns, the milestone for Hynes will have to wait. However, there is still enough of a resume to check in on Hynes and the job he is doing while leading a Predators team with extremely high standards and expectations. The team...

Coronavirus dampens St. Patrick’s Day celebrations around the world

By PETER MORRISON and JILL LAWLESS DUBLIN — St. Patrick’s Day celebrations around the world have fallen victim to the new coronavirus — but even a pandemic could not quash the desire to celebrate the color green, Guinness and all things Irish. Parades and parties were canceled around the globe Tuesday as governments imposed restrictions on human contact to slow the spread of the virus.

Devils’ Bratt Elevating His Game to New Heights

Expectations were quite high for New Jersey Devils’ winger Jesper Bratt entering the season. He only played in 51 games in his second pro campaign in 2018-19 but produced at a 52-point over 82 games. The hope was he’d continue building on that step forward in 2019-20, but that’s not how things started out. He totaled seven points in his first 21 games and found himself on the fourth line under then-head coach John Hynes.  But things changed when Hynes was let go by the Devils on Dec. 3. Since...

Devils’ Blackwood Emerging as Legit Starting Goalie

There hasn’t been a ton of bright spots for the New Jersey Devils this season. They’re 26-28-12 and will be hoping for some luck in the draft lottery once again. But that doesn’t mean they don’t have players to build around. While his season did not get off to a great start, Mackenzie Blackwood has shined in net since John Hynes’ firing. He had arguably the best February of any goaltender in the NHL and is starting to show he can be a legitimate starter after a difficult beginning to the season....

Predators Were Quiet at the Deadline, and That’s Okay

What you see is what you have. The NHL Trade Deadline has come and gone, with general manager David Poile and the Nashville Predators mainly staying quiet. However, there is one name leaving the Music City – Matt Irwin, but his playing time has been largely nonexistent for the past few months – and the return, Korbinian Holzer – who has six goals and 23 assists in 203 regular-season games – is not exactly the splash that many were hoping for. The Predators’ up and down season led to Poile cha...

Predators’ Trade Deadline Targets

The Nashville Predators are the perfect team to break fans’ hearts. High expectations heading into the season were followed by lackluster efforts that had the team on the wrong side of results on many nights. The Predators are still outside the playoffs, but just barely. With games in hand, they are set up nicely to control their destiny. A dominant 5-0 shutout win over the New York Islanders on Feb. 13, followed by a huge weekend sweep of the St. Louis Blues gave fans hope that maybe, just ...

THW’s Goalie News: Shesterkin’s Promotion, Saros, Talbot Shutouts

New York Rangers head coach David Quinn made a monumental-if-inevitable announcement on Thursday, a story that leads the goalie news.

Shesterkin is Rangers #1 New York Rangers’ goaltender on the rise Igor Shesterkin has been dominant in his first few games in the NHL. He’s started just seven games in his young career, but he’s won six of them, particularly impressive given his team has only ...

Predators’ Reasons for Optimism

It’s been tough for Nashville Predators fans to read team news this season. It wouldn’t be at all surprising if many fans have just resorted to switching off their team notifications from any sports apps they have. After all, positive outlooks for the team are extremely scarce and for good reason. There is no shortage of content reporting negative projections and trends that the Predators are ultimately facing, and again if the shoe fits… For a team that was thought to be a cup contender this...

John Hynes Wins Revenge Game Against Devils

He wouldn’t admit it, to the surprise of no one who has spoken with the former New Jersey Devils head coach, but it sure had to feel good for John Hynes and his Nashville Predators leave New Jersey with a 6-5 shootout win on Jan. 30. The Devils fired Hynes less than two months ago and he was hired by the Predators nine games ago (Jan.7). “I’m sure it’s pretty special for him,” said Predators center Matt Duchene said of getting the win for his new bench boss. “We feel great about it, and we’ll...

Devils Should Start Easing Hughes Into Scoring Role

It’s all but a forgone conclusion the New Jersey Devils will miss the playoffs for a second consecutive season. They sit at 18-24-8 on the season and would have to go on a ridiculous winning streak to stand any chance at making the postseason. But that doesn’t mean it’s time to throw in the towel for the rest of 2019-20.  The Devils have a lot of young players on their team. And since that’s the case, focusing on their development will be crucial over the team’s final 32 games. One player who...

Predators’ Trade Deadline Decisions

With less than a month until the NHL trade deadline, most teams already know whether they’re buyers or sellers. Are they going to acquire players for a strong cup run? Or are they going to offload their current assets for picks and prospects in preparation for the future? Well, the decision of whether a team is a buyer or a seller is, obviously and predominately, based on their position in the standings. Bringing in a star or trading one away is sometimes a choice that general managers are a...

Hynes, Predators Win 6-5 in Shootout in Return to New Jersey

NEWARK, N.J. — Filip Forsberg and Matt Duchene scored in a shootout, and the Nashville Predators gave coach John Hynes a win against his former team with a wild 6-5 victory over the New Jersey Devils on Thursday night. Forsberg scored two goals in regulation and Pekka Rinne made saves on Jack Hughes and Kyle Palmieri on the Devils’ final two shootout attempts as the Predators won their second game in two nights. Mattias Ekholm, Nick Bonino and Duchene also scored for the Predators. Rinne h...
