Time to hit the road...

January 2, 2019 - 3:37 PM ET

Join us on SlapShot Radio tonight at 7pm on 102.5 the Game. Last night’s 4-0 blanking of the Philadelphia Flyers was a good way to send the Predators off on an 11 day, six game odyssey that takes the team through some tough venues and quite a few Eastern Conference teams. 32 hours before puck d...

Five games in seven nights begins tonight

January 4, 2019 - 8:48 AM ET

The Predators are in the Motor City to visit an old rival, the Detroit Red Wings. Long time Pred fans can remember when Detroit was the games to circle on the schedule… a team to be feared, to be hated, to be loathed… The hatred has faded since the Preds finally slayed the dragon in only the...

Game Night in T.O.

January 7, 2019 - 10:29 AM ET

A weird hockey weekend that showed the best and the worst of the Nashville Predators. The worst? The uninspired, “just show up and we will win” attitude displayed on Friday night in an overtime loss to the Detroit Red Wings. The best? The inspired, on your toes, aggressive forechecking, soli...

When is Offside Not Offside?

Wow... and back at it...

January 10, 2019 - 3:11 PM ET

Well… that was an interesting one. The Nashville Predators kept to their winning ways last night, beating Chicago at the United Center 4-3 in overtime. The Blackhawks actually resembled a team that cares in last night’s showdown… a team that cares, but still doesn’t have the horses to mak...

Game Night in Smashville

January 15, 2019 - 8:12 AM ET

The last home stand of January begins tonight in Smashville as the Predators welcome the Washington Capitals to town. The defending Stanley Cup champs hit town after a bad 4-1 loss to the St. Louis Blues last night at Capital One Arena, their second straight loss after a Saturday night overtime loss...

Washington Shutdown

January 16, 2019 - 8:15 AM ET

The Washington Capitals are going to be just fine. A 7-2 loss to Nashville last night won’t hurt them that much. When April comes, they will be a favorite to successfully defend their Stanley Cup Championship. For Nashville, last night was another object lesson in bouncing back after a sub-stand...
