P.K. Subban Turns Down Fight By Declaring Himself A "Pussy," Telling Opponent How Much He Sucks P.K. Subban Turns Down Fight By Declaring Himself A "Pussy," Telling Opponent How Much He Sucks

Predators defenseman P.K. Subban had himself a nice little chat with Avalanche defender Nikita Zadorov during a stoppage in play in Nashville’s 4-1 last night. Zadorov apparently invited Subban to fight him, and although the confrontation wasn’t caught on camera, a hot mic in the arena picked up some of what Subban…

Predators Coach Peter Laviolette Rewards His Team By Partially Committing To A Furry Look Predators Coach Peter Laviolette Rewards His Team By Partially Committing To A Furry Look

As a former player himself, Nashville Predators head coach Peter Laviolette knows how tough it can be for a team to go on the road in Western Canada. He used this opportunity to challenge his players: Come away with four points on the two-game road trip. The Preds succeeded by beating the Flames, 5-3, and the Oilers,…

The Jets And Predators Are Brawling The Jets And Predators Are Brawling

Predators-Jets is the best sort of rivalry: one born almost solely from the fact that both teams are very good and each stands in the other’s way of the Central title, the West, and, perhaps ultimately, a Cup. And even though we’re months and months away from what we all hope is a playoff rematch of last year’s…

This Predators Banner Is So Embarrassing This Predators Banner Is So Embarrassing

Tuesday was the home opener for the Predators, and they celebrated their 2017–18 season, as they had every reason to; they were good as hell last year, despite falling in the second round to the also-good-as-hell Jets. So they raised some banners. Two of them, perfectly fine banners. One of them, not.

Predators' Ryan Johansen Skates Off Ice After Walk-Off Goal Predators' Ryan Johansen Skates Off Ice After Walk-Off Goal

After seven seasons in the NHL, Predators center Ryan Johansen surely knows that the importance of the preseason pales in comparison to that of the regular season. It might be useful for the rookies, and other young guys, to develop their skills and mentally adjust to top-level game speeds, but it won’t quite have the…

Predators' Austin Watson Suspended 27 Games For Domestic Violence Predators' Austin Watson Suspended 27 Games For Domestic Violence

Nashville Predators winger Austin Watson has been suspended 27 games without pay—nearly a third of the season—for “unacceptable off-ice conduct,” for his June domestic assault arrest for an incident in which he struck and shoved his girlfriend, and to which he pleaded no contest. How did the league settle on 27…

Predators' Austin Watson Arrested For Domestic Assault Predators' Austin Watson Arrested For Domestic Assault

As first reported by the Tennessean this morning, Nashville Predators forward Austin Watson was arrested Saturday and charged with domestic assault after he argued with his girlfriend at a gas station and shoved her. A witness flagged down a Franklin PD car around 7 p.m. to report “a possible domestic situation,” and…

Pekka Rinne Gifts The Jets A Game 7 Win Pekka Rinne Gifts The Jets A Game 7 Win

Predators goalie Pekka Rinne—or, just as plausibly, some amateur wearing his sweater and pads—ended Nashville’s Stanley Cup bid tonight with two incredibly soft goals allowed in the first period of Game 7 against the Jets, leading to an eventual 5-1 Winnipeg victory. Rinne, a Vezina Trophy finalist who looked shaky…

Filip Forsberg Is Too Pretty To Die Without A Game 7

The Predators beat the Jets 4-0 in Winnipeg tonight to fight off second-round elimination and force a Game 7 back in Nashville. It was a mostly tense game despite the final, with the danger of a two-goal lead particularly looming over the Preds when the Jets had an early third-period power play. But it was Filip…

Pekka Rinne And His Knob Kept The Predators Alive

In the highest leverage game of their playoffs so far—don’t you hate the term “must-win” in non-elimination games?—Predators goalie Pekka Rinne turned in his best performance of the postseason yet, anchoring Nashville as they beat Winnipeg 2-1 on the road in Game 4 to tie their second-round series at two games apiece.

This Is What We All Came To See This Is What We All Came To See

Because these are two relatively young franchises, it’s easy to fall into the trap of thinking of the Jets’ and Predators’ rosters the same way, as playoff ingénues. But Nashville has been here before, seven postseasons in nine years, and has carried over most of the same faces from last year’s Finals run. Winnipeg…

Jets-Predators Is A Cruel And Fantastic Second-Round Series Jets-Predators Is A Cruel And Fantastic Second-Round Series

First off, I have to admit that I actually like the current NHL playoff format, and its focus on intra-division competition in the opening two rounds. I think the general geographic closeness of the early-round games is a plus for the competitors, but more importantly, the repeated match-ups year after year create…

I'm Pleased To Inform You That Filip Forsberg Is At It Again

When we last saw Filip Forsberg scoring for Nashville, he was putting the finishing touches on a Game 1 win against the Avalanche with a goal of pure sorcery. After a quieter two games, Forsberg’s magic has reappeared in Game 4, opening the scoring with a hurricane of a breakout goal that may have forced Colorado…

Good Lord, Filip Forsberg, This Is Sorcery Good Lord, Filip Forsberg, This Is Sorcery

Filip Forsberg scored twice in the third period of the Predators’ 5-2 win over the Avalanche in Game 1 of their first-round series tonight, but forget about that first goal for now, because his second one was truly gorgeous. It’s unclear how exactly he managed to keep track of the puck here in order to pull this off,…

The Predators Got Hosed By Goalie Interference The Predators Got Hosed By Goalie Interference

In a game loaded with playoff and seeding implications, Predators-Panthers had an ending that should terrify everyone that a rough goaltender interference call could fuck over any team at any time. Isn’t hockey great?!

The Predators Are Hustling And It's Wonderful To Watch

This is one of my favorite sequences from the NHL season so far.

A Wonderteen Is Tearing Up The KHL Playoffs, And He's Headed For Nashville Soon

Helsinki-based KHL team Jokerit wrapped up a fairly easy first-round series victory over HC Sochi tonight. They won in five games on the back of teen phenom Eeli Tolvanen, who scored five goals to add to his 19 that he got in 49 regular season games (not to mention his three in the Olympics).

This NHL Referee Aspires To Be A Milder Version Of Wes McCauley This NHL Referee Aspires To Be A Milder Version Of Wes McCauley

Here’s NHL ref Tom Kowal with the call of Tuesday’s Blues-Predators game: “Bench minor penalty for Nashville for too many guys on the ice. They had six gentlemen, and the goaler.” Hockey nicknames are out of control.

The Canucks Let The Predators Put On A Show The Canucks Let The Predators Put On A Show

Sure, in any seven-goal game you’re going to see some fluke goals. Like P.K. Subban half-whiffing on a giveaway one-timer and the goalie never seeing the knuckling shot; or Subban scoring from center ice; or Filip Forsberg banging in a centering pass off a Canuck’s skate.

Hot Damn, P.K. Subban Scored From A Million Miles Away

P.K. Subban put the Predators up 3-0 in the second period of tonight’s game against the Canucks, getting his second goal of the evening by scoring from a point that just logically seems like it should be near impossible to manage. (From center ice, if you want to get all technical about it).
