This week Preds NHL.com correspondent Robby Stanley and I break down the Chicago Blackhawks vs. Nashville Predators playoff series, try to figure out why the Preds have been off lately, and take a swing at picking the other series in the Western Conference.
Some thoughts collected on wondering why the NHL never let the Preds use the skull logo (they thought it was too violent/gory I’ve heard). Since clinching a playoff spot Nashville has lost three in a row. They’re inconsistent in many areas right now and have a good three game stretch to assemble the parts in […]
Quite a bit went down in the NHL last night so here’s a quick recap: Roberto Luongo won his 400th NHL game and Jaromir Jagr notched his 1,798th career point to tie Ron Francis for 4th in NHL history. Alex Ovechkin scored his 473rd career goal to pass Peter Bondra for first all-time with the […]

Playing the part of the actual joke is the NHL’s Department of Player Safety. No suspension goes beyond laughable, now […]
Just looking over April 1 in hockey history: Colorado Rockies win BIG – 1979 This Dallas Stars twitter groaner And I actually pulled one over back in my UHL days. In the minors you also serve as PR person (among many other things) and I put up a release on our web site saying our […]
Just some collected thoughts ahead of tonight’s games… Jonathan Drouin just snapped a 42-game goalless drought by scoring last night against Montreal in the Lightning’s 5-3 win. Hey Preds fans, remember when you might have been upset about drafting Seth Jones and wanted immediate offense? It doesn’t always work that way. Both Jones and Drouin […]
