Canucks Fail to Eliminate Preds

We Believe. Prior to Saturday night, the Nashville Predators were 0-5 all-time when facing an elimination game. But this has been a year of making history, and this is a team with more heart than any Preds team before it. We Believe. Nashville pulled ahead of Vancouver with two goals in the third period to […]

Preds Fall to Nucks 4-2;Trail Series 3-1

Most wanted man in Smashville, Ryan Kesler.  Ryan Kesler.  I guess he isn’t as terrible as I originally penned him out to be. The guy not only scored two goals in Tuesday’s game, but he also scored the game winning goal and two assists in Thursday nights contest and gave the Canucks the 3-1 lead […]

What Did We Learn in Game 3?

Tread carefully Kesler, Weber will be after you.  What did we learn in Game 3 of the Western semifinals? That Ryan Kesler is a good hockey player cheater.   We also learned that we cannot be taking penalties against the Canucks if we want to defeat them tonight. Don’t get me wrong though, I know […]

Preds Fall to Canucks 3-2 in Game Three

I’m not in the business of blaming officials for games. Players, ultimately, decide games with their play through the entire course of a game, and if they do not play well enough to make up for a couple of botched calls in the game, then they simply did not play well enough to win. That […]

Preds Tie the Series

The Predators were able to beat the Canucks in the second overtime of game two. Following some sloppy playing throughout most of regulation, and all of the OT, Matt Halischuk was able to score and give the Preds its first win of the series. If I were forced to pick two words to describe game two of […]

Predators Play Awful, fall 1-0 to Vancouver in Game One

Not even Pekka Rinne can win a game by himself. The final score reads “1-0,” but it should probably read “5-0.” Pekka Rinne, with 29 spectacular saves, was the only bright spot in an awful game for the Predators, as they were outclassed by Vancouver in every other conceivable way. The Canucks completely dominated the […]

Round 2: VAN vs NSH

Chicago’s 2-1 OT loss to the Vancouver Canucks Tuesday was a low blow after an outstanding turn around. Erat has been very effective against the Canucks this year. Alexandre Burrows (remember this guy?) scored the overtime winner at 14:58 in the period to keep the number one ‘Nucks from losing to the Blackhawks for the third straight year. […]

Being a Fan of Tennessee Professional Sports

As we wait to see who the Predators will be matched up with in round two, I felt like it would be good to write an article that sort of changed things up, because I’ve been anxious about who we’re going to play and just to get our team back out on the ice and […]

What’s Ahead?

After the Predators 4-2 win Sunday night and first playoff series win in franchise history, the opponent it will face in the second round is still up in the air. The seeding works just as it did in the first round where the highest seed will face the lowest. As of now the only two […]

Predators Finally Advance to Round Two

That’s right, boys–we’re going to the second round. Last year it was the Blackhawks. Before that we had been demonized by the Sharks and Red Wings. But no matter whom the opponent was, Nashville has never been able to get past the first round. Until now. Second round, meet Smashville. We’ve been waiting to see […]

History Will be Made

This video will overfill you with joy and bring tears to your eyes. So great! Let’s finish them off tomorrow Smashville!

Predators Take Control of Series in Dramatic Fashion

For the first time in franchise history, the Nashville Predators earned an overtime playoff victory. For the first time in franchise history, the Nashville Predators managed three wins in a playoff series. Winning. It was a big night for Smashville, claiming a 3-2 series lead over the Anaheim Ducks with a 4-3 overtime victory in […]

Game 5 Hero

The hero of Game 5, Jerred Smithson! Jake has a post coming up shortly, but I just wanted to say that I’m so freaking excited about tonight’s OT win!  Klein, Ward, Weber and especially Smithson, I’m buying you all drinks after you defeat the Ducks Sunday! Getting to the second round of the playoffs will […]

Playing Dirty is the Only Way Anaheim Can Win

The National Hockey League has suspended Jarkko Ruutu from participating in Game Five after he deliberately intended to hurt Martin Erat with a late hit Wednesday night. However, instead of the officials giving Rutuu a game misconduct or even a major penalty Wednesday, they settled with a measly two minute minor for interference.  Erat will be out indefinitely with […]
