NBC Sports Is Latest to Team Up With a Working Athlete

P.K. Subban is best known for his work on the ice on behalf of the Nashville Predators. But if NBC Sports and the National Hockey League defenseman have their way, he might gain some notoriety for his performance on solid ground. NBC Sports this evening will launch “The P.K. Project,” a multi-episode digital series featuring […]

Is Hockey Living Dr. King’s Dream?

On Monday, Jan 21, much of the United States will enjoy a holiday – Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. Many will celebrate the legacy of the slain civil rights leader in parades. Some will attend services commemorating Dr. King and his work. Others will ponder “the dream” that still resonates from his famous speech given at the Lincoln Memorial on Aug. 28, 1963. Who Broke Hockey’s Color Barrier? Sports has been an arena in which there have been many strides made in seeing Dr. King’s speech come to l...

Lightning Domination No Guarantee of Playoff Success

Toronto Maple Leafs head coach Mike Babcock said in December it looked like the Tampa Bay Lightning were better than every other NHL team. About a month later, not much has changed. The Lightning are running away from the competition in the overall standings. Tampa Bay Lightning celebrate (AP Photo/Chris O’Meara) Following a 2-0 victory in Dallas over the Stars on Tuesday, Tampa had 74 points — 10 better than the Calgary Flames in the race for the Presidents’ Trophy and 16 clear of Toronto for...

Arvidsson, Forsberg and Subban Dazzling in Returns

The Nashville Predators have been on a roll of late with five wins in their last seven games with their only losses occurring in overtime. Before that, however, it was a different story as they lost six in a row, including four against non-playoff teams. The biggest reason for their turnaround has been a return to health, especially by key players as Viktor Arvidsson, Filip Forsberg and P.K. Subban all missed extended periods of time between November and January. Arvidsson has had two injury abs...

'We got a lesson': Rinne makes 18 saves as Predators blank Maple Leafs 4-0

TORONTO — Class was in session for the Maple Leafs on Monday night. Toronto head coach Mike Babcock was clear in his grading — they didn't pass the test. Pekka Rinne made 18 saves for his third shutout of the season as the Nashville Predators jumped out to a 2-0 lead through two periods before choking off any hope of a comeback over the final 20 minutes in a 4-0 victory. "We got a lesson from a veteran team," Babcock said. "In the third period in particular ... they just stayed patient. "Th...

Subban helps Predators beat his former team

Defenseman P.K. Subban collected two assists against his former team as the Nashville Predators continued a season-high six-game road trip with a 4-1 victory over the Montreal Canadiens on Saturday night. In his third trip to Montreal since being traded to Nashville in 2016 for fellow defenseman Shea Weber, Subban registered the primary assists on two goals by Craig Smith. Subban recorded two assists for the fourth time this season.

Subban Has Nothing Left to Prove vs. Canadiens

You get the sense nothing Nashville Predators defenseman P.K. Subban can do will ever be good enough in the eyes of a select group of Montreal Canadiens fans. Subban Returns to Montreal As his return to town looms, the Subban trade, which will likely hang over the city for a long while still, temporarily drops to the forefront. And justifiably so. While Shea Weber impressively keeps his game at an elite level at age 33, Subban continues to be one of the best defenseman in the league at age 29,...

Canucks Beat Predators – Pettersson Converts Penalty Shot

VANCOUVER — Rookie Elias Pettersson scored on his first NHL penalty shot as the Vancouver Canucks used a 5-3 win over the Nashville Predators Thursday night to snap a four-game losing streak. Pettersson was awarded the penalty shot with 71 seconds left in the second period after being hauled down on a breakaway by Nashville defenceman Mattias Ekholm. On the shot, Pettersson weaved his way across the ice then tucked the puck past goaltender Pekka Renne’s toe for a 4-1 lead. The 20-year-old Swede,...

Josi & Subban Reach Career Milestones

Two members of the Nashville Predators’ defense have celebrated career milestones this week. Roman Josi, the longest-tenured member of the group, played in his 500th career regular season on Nov. 15 against the Arizona Coyotes. Meanwhile, P.K. Subban, whom the Predators acquired from the Montreal Canadiens during the 2016 offseason, recently appeared in his 600th regular season matchup when the Predators faced the San Jose Sharks on Nov. 13, a game in which he played just over seven minutes due ...

Predators Injuries: Arvidsson out up to 8 Weeks & Subban on IR

GLENDALE, Ariz. — The Nashville Predators say forward Viktor Arvidsson will miss between up to eight weeks with a broken thumb, and they’ve also placed defenceman P.K. Subban on injured reserve. The Predators announced the injury update on both Thursday after their morning skate. They wrap up a five-game road trip Thursday night against the Coyotes. Arvidsson, who plays on Nashville’s top line, was placed on injured reserve Monday. He was hurt in his first game back, a 5-4 win in Dallas last wee...

Whicker: Ducks are outnumbered but not out-fought in shootout win over Predators

ANAHEIM — There was a slash and a puck-over-glass delay. There was a cross-check and a high stick. There was another slash and a too-many-men penalty, that one with 12:48 left. And, to put a bow on it, another slash, when P.K. Subban took Jacob Silfverberg to the net in overtime and either got slashed or convinced the officials that he did. That’s seven man-advantage chances for Nashville, the team with the NHL’s best record, to beat the previously beatable Ducks on Monday night. Instead, the Pr...

Kotkaniemi the Latest Kindergarten Canadien

When he donned the bleu-blanc-rouge on opening night of the 2018-19 season, Jesperi Kotkaniemi tied Claude Lemieux as the third-youngest Montreal Canadien in history, at 18 years, 89 days old. The native of Pori, Finland and third overall pick in the 2018 draft also made history by becoming the first NHL player born in the 2000s. Kotkaniemi registered an assist and two shots on goal in a 3-2 overtime loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs. “I don’t think he looked out of place,” said head coach Claude ...

Hockey Notes Of Interest

from Steve Simmonso of the Toronto Sun, - Asked Mark Scheifele on radio to name his top five players in the NHL. One of them, surprisingly, was Roman Josi. No coincidence that Winnipeg played Nashville in the playoffs and Scheifele was often matched up against Josi, who may be the least talked-about great defenceman in the NHL. Josi finished seventh in Norris Trophy voting this past season, with just 86 votes. His teammate, P.K. Subban, was named on 565 ballots. - Another thing Dubas ...

Top Canadiens Storylines Heading Into 2018-19

If the 2018-19 Montreal Canadiens were a soap opera they’d probably be The Young and the Restless. Well, the Habs would be “the young” and their fans “the restless,” following a largely unsuccessful last few seasons. The Habs have missed the playoffs in two of the last three years, got upset in the first round in the other and the prospects for this coming campaign aren’t exactly promising. Fans still have a lot to look forward to though, namely how the following storylines play out in 2018-19: ...

P.K. Subban’s Contract

The Montreal Canadiens signed P.K. Subban to his current eight-year, $72 million contract prior to the start of the 2014-15 season. That deal came after he played the prior two seasons on a two-year bridge deal with a $2.875 million cap hit. He had his two best seasons to that point during that deal with a Norris Trophy in 2013 and career highs offensively in 2013-14. After that contract expired, Subban and the Canadiens went to arbitration with Subban seeking a one-year, $8.5 million contract a...

Will the Canadiens Keep Pacioretty?

The conflict between Max Pacioretty and the Montreal Canadiens has become a popular topic of conversation this summer. With one year remaining in his contract, general manager Marc Bergevin has made it clear he wants to trade the talented winger who must have fallen out of favour with management. The media has been left to speculate about the rift. Was it the 2017-18 season when his offensive output plummet to 17 goals and 20 assists in 64 games? Is it his lack of leadership after assuming the c...

8 Best Defence Pairings in the NHL: 2017-18 Edition

Every team craves a rock-solid defensive pairing that can do it all. Keeping scoring chances away from your net is usually the goal for top pairings, but being able to contribute offence as well is a completely different skill. There aren’t many defencemen who are talented at both, never mind one or the other. Related: 8 Best Lines in the NHL, 2017-18 Edition Finding that chemistry on a pairing altogether is an even tougher task. Sometimes, really good defencemen can’t find that partner to gain ...

The Canadiens Legacy of Losing

I remember the afternoon of April 27, 1980, clearly. Walking down Ste Catherine street, I saw a tall, lanky figure walking towards me. It didn’t take me long to recognize Larry Robinson, the Canadiens’ star defenseman, who would win the Norris Trophy later that year. Approaching him, I shouted, “You guys are gonna win!” in reference to Game 7 of their quarterfinal series against the Minnesota North Stars that night. If he was tense, it was not reflected in his smile, but I’m sure he had cause fo...

5 Free Agents to Avoid This Offseason

The 2018 free agent class looks to be on par with most years. It has three star-caliber players in John Tavares, James van Riemsdyk, and John Carlson and then a dropoff with the remainder of available players. This year’s free agent class will also be similar to other years because there will be at least one signing that ends up being a bust. The 2017 class had Karl Alzner and Martin Hanzal, 2016 had Milan Lucic and Loui Eriksson, Paul Martin was a bust from 2015, and 2014 had Matt Moulson, Thom...

EA NHL 19 Cover Athlete Announced

  The month immediately following the National Hockey League season might be the most exciting time in the entire hockey calendar. First, there are the trades. Apparently, all that’s needed for NHL general managers to start wheeling and dealing is the opportunity to wear shorts and a three-month buffer between them inevitably making a hash of things and the on-ice debut of said hash. Then, there’s the draft, where a bunch of (mostly) older adults sit around attempting to predict the career traje...

Bergevin’s Best Offseason So Far?

At the very least, Montreal Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin has proven he can perform when the pressure is on. Of course, it probably would have been more helpful had he been able to put together a few impressive moves in succession whenever the team’s season has been on the line and not just his job. Marc Bergevin -(Lisa Gansky Photography) Take what you can get at this point though. Up to now that’s been the top two coaching candidates in Quebec if not the entire market in Dominique ...

Bruins Must Bolster Goalie Depth at Draft

As the Boston Bruins look towards the 2018 NHL Entry Draft, they find themselves with a wealth of impactful prospects already at their disposal. At forward, youngsters like Jake DeBrusk, Danton Heinen, Anders Bjork, and Ryan Donato all earned NHL time this past season. On the back end, there is Charlie McAvoy, Brandon Carlo, and Matt Grzelcyk, who all solidified starting roles during the 2017-18 campaign. But the state of the crease has been a bit underwhelming in comparison. Zane McIntyre, Dani...

5 Players Who Aren’t Going Anywhere This Summer

It’s the offseason and changes are going to take place before training camp starts in the fall. Teams will sign free agents, newly drafted prospects will replace veterans, and teams will move some high-profile players. These include players who deserve to be traded and will be and those who don’t deserve to be dealt but will be. There are also the players who won’t be traded this summer but should be.

P.K. and the Predators: Time to Part Ways?

With how quickly the Predators were ousted from the postseason despite Stanley Cup aspirations, rumors started swirling about potential roster changes. And with how much attention ...

Jets Conquer Predators in Game 7

The series between the NHL’s two true juggernauts — the series that was hyped as a “Clash of Titans” and discussed to the nth degree more than any other in the 2018 Stanley Cup Playoffs thus far — lived up to all the hoopla. The fast-paced, back-and-forth series went the distance and was just as good as advertised. At the end of the day, it was the underdog Winnipeg Jets who took the do-or-die Game 7 with a decisive 5-1 victory. Here’s how the Jets hunted and killed the mighty Predators Thursday...
