Predators’ 2018-19 Season Awards

The 2018-19 regular season has come and gone, and for the Nashville Predators, it was a successful season. Since the regular season is over, it’s time to look back and hand out some team-specific hardware. Introducing the Predators’ 2018-19 season awards. Most Valuable Player: Viktor Arvidsson While there are other candidates, there’s only one player worthy of being named Predators’ MVP, and that’s Viktor Arvidsson. Arvidsson totaled 34 goals and 48 points in 58 games, leading the team b...

7 Takeaways From Predators’ Games 1 & 2

The first two games have come and gone in the Nashville Predators/Dallas Stars series. Both teams have one win apiece, with the Stars taking Game 1 by a 3-2 score and the Predators winning the second game 2-1 in overtime. Here are some takeaways, both positive and negative, that I made. Speed Is the Name of the Game Although the Predators didn’t score any goals off the rush in either game, their speed was a strong factor in winning Game 2. With Brian Boyle out of the lineup and Wayne Sim...

‘No Easy Shifts’ as First-Round Series Get Tight & Nasty

It wasn’t long after celebrating Craig Smith’s overtime goal that P.K. Subban zeroed in on the cold reality of Nashville’s playoff series against Dallas. “There are no easy shifts out there, no easy games and no easy plays,” he said. “It’s hand-to-hand combat out there.” Subban and the Central Division-winning Predators needed to work overtime just to even things with the Stars at a game apiece, and the Colorado Avalanche got a sudden-death goal from Nathan MacKinnon to tie up their series...

Predators’ Keys for Playoff Success

The Nashville Predators entered the 2018-19 season as one of the favorites to make a deep playoff run and were among the handful of teams viewed as a serious Stanley Cup contender. This season hasn’t gone as expected. Sure, they won the Central Division but were never in the same conversation as the Tampa Bay Lightning. Recently, however, they’ve played better, with a 7-2-1 record in their final 10 games, with some gutsy wins included. But despite their recent strong play, the Predators have ...

Canadiens Give Fans Reasons to Believe

Well, that was fun. In a microcosm of their season, the Montreal Canadiens were given hope late on Friday night when the New York Rangers’ Pavel Buchnevich tied the game against the Columbus Blue Jackets with seven seconds left, but alas, it was not to be. The Blue Jackets won in a shootout to clinch their spot in the postseason dance, and eliminate the Canadiens. That they were in the hunt until the second-last day of the season was a minor miracle considering they finished 28th overall in 2017...

P.K. Subban Peaking at the Right Time

P.K. Subban, the Nashville Predators’ enigmatic defenseman, is peaking at the right time with five points in his last three games. It couldn’t come at a better time as the team seeks to play their best hockey when the postseason arrives. And for a team like the Predators that generates a large portion of its offense from the blue line, a healthy and productive Subban is a welcomed sight. That’s especially true considering his 2018-19 hasn’t gone as planned. Subban’s 2018-19 Season Subban...

Malcolm Subban gets in official's face while arguing goal call

Vegas Golden Knights goaltender Malcolm Subban got in an official's face to argue a goal call during Sunday's NHL game against Calgary.It happened in the final minute of the second period as Flames center Mikael Backlund stood in front of Subban and scored a power play goal by deflecting a slapshot from the point to give the Flames a 4-3 lead with 21.8 seconds left. Subban apparently felt he was interfered with, and when the second period was over, he decided to let the head referee know how h...

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.

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...
