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...

Predicting Predators’ 2019 Storylines

In a recent article, I covered the top-five storylines for the Nashville Predators from the 2018 calendar year. So now that 2018 is wrapped up and we’re a week into 2019, I want to predict what I think will be the team’s biggest storylines this year.

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,...

Predictions For 2019

from Luke Fox of Sportsnet, - Erik Karlsson leaves San Jose… for New York… and signs for less than Drew Doughty. The assumption that deploying the twin right-shot, minute-munching threats of Brent Burns and Karlsson would forever keep the puck in the opponents’ zone and elevate a perennial playoff team to the most frightening team in the Pacific has fallen flat. Despite Doug Wilson’s all-in mentality over the summer, the Sharks are still a work-in-progress. There’s not enough puck to ...

Stars Blank Predators – Khudobin Stops 49

Predators’ Mid-Season Check-Up

Okay, so it’s not exactly the mid-way point for the Nashville Predators’ 2018-19 season. They’ve played 37 games, four shy of the halfway mark. However, the Christmas break remains a convenient time to perform a check-up of the team because enough time has passed to know what they are and aren’t and what changes ought to be done the rest of the season to better the roster. The Predators started 2018-19 off great with a 17-8-1 record through November. They were tied for first in the Central Divis...

P.K. Subban was over the moon while meeting Tom Brady after Patriots' win

It’s tough to not like someone as warm and positive as P.K. Subban. The Predators blueliner made headlines earlier this week when his ‘Carol Crawl’ through the city he of Nashville reached new heights. Subban travelled with the team to Boston for a clash with the Bruins on Saturday, but didn’t end up suiting up in Nashville’s 5-2 loss.

Predators’ Remaining Schedule Is All Uphill

The Nashville Predators have been one of the league’s better teams this season with a 22-12-2 record at the time of writing this. Their 46 points has them in second place in the Central Division and third in the Western Conference. The on-the-surface reasons for their success are obvious: the league’s most productive blue line, offensive depth and Vezina-caliber goaltending. However, an under-the-radar reason for their record has been their schedule. A schedule that has been surprisingly team-fr...

Trading Roman Josi is a Good Idea

From a production standpoint, the Nashville Predators have the league’s best defense, with 89 points by eight players. None of their blueliners exhibits this offensive ability more than captain Roman Josi, who consistently puts up great numbers and is currently second on the team in points. However, he is also somewhat of a polarizing defenseman as people’s opinions of him tend to be on opposite ends of the spectrum. There are many reasons to like him. He can skate, lead a rush and stick handle ...

What Does Expansion Mean for the Predators?

On Dec. 4, the NHL’s board of governors voted unanimously to approve an expansion bid by the city of Seattle to give the league 32 franchises. The team is slated to begin play during the 2021-22 season, meaning an expansion draft in the summer of 2021.

Predators Quarter-Season Check-Up

American Thanksgiving, celebrated on the fourth Thursday in November, is traditionally the first point in the season when we look at the standings and begin to take them seriously. Since the 2005-06 season, 77.3 percent of teams in a playoff spot at American Thanksgiving went on to play postseason hockey, so playing strong hockey to start the year is key for teams looking to be on the ice come springtime. Luckily for the Nashville Predators, they are in excellent position with an NHL-best 33 poi...
