The year is 1994. The location is Lillehammer, Norway. It’s a sudden death shootout in the Olympic Hockey finals. With the crowd screaming, Peter Forsberg is at the opposite blue line staring at Canada’s goalie, Corey Hirsch. Forsberg skates in and makes a move towards Hirsch’s right. All of a sudden with one hand he

With the start of the 2017-18 season just around the corner, the Nashville Predators are in the process of determining which players make their roster. The return of veterans like Scott Hartnell will no doubt provide some stability on a team that has lost some notable names during the offseason. On the other hand, unproven young

After moving to Jokerit Helsinki during the 2017 season, Nashville Predators prospect Eeli Tolvanen had an incredible start to his pro career, scoring a hat trick in his first game as Jokerit defeated Dinamo Minsk 6-1 in their KHL opener. In this translated interview, originally appearing at the popular Russian website Sport Express, Tolvanen discussed

July 1 marks the beginning of free agency in the NHL. For fans around the league, it’s like Christmas but instead of getting toys, your team gets a fancy new hockey player (whose sweater you’ll probably want in December when it’s actually Christmas). It is a time for teams to stock up for the upcoming season, to

There’s a scene at the end of the movie Goodfellas where Henry Hill, the notorious gangster played by Ray Liotta, speaks directly to the camera and laments the sudden end to the life he once knew. “Everything was for the taking. And now it’s all over.” Just like that, with a crack of a judge’s gavel, the high

It’s amazing how quickly the tables can turn within a week of hockey. We hockey writers like to dig our hands into stories that play out on and off the ice. That’s why Listerine will probably air a commercial starring Carrie Underwood for their new catfish flavor any day now. It’s also why Peter Laviolette has to

“The series doesn’t start until the home team loses a game.” NBA analysts will spew this age-old adage any time an away team falls down 0-2 in a playoff series. As it turns out, the logic of that phrase is idiotic when applied to the NBA. However, this moronic basketball cliché is surprisingly applicable to

Smashville has to feel duped. For the first two games of the franchise’s first Stanley Cup Final appearance, the Nashville Predators have looked nothing like the team they were a month ago. Up until now, the story was about Nashville getting hot at the right time, but after a disheartening 4 – 1 loss in Game

Hockey is a funny sport, isn’t it? After dropping Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final, the Nashville Predators won’t be laughing, but neither should the Pittsburgh Penguins. In the playoffs, a team has to earn every inch of ice. Nothing is a given, and no game is deserved. That’s the idea, anyway. Yet, it certainly

Though never an organisation to take the lead on any issue of consequence, the National Hockey League has not helped its cause these playoffs. From allowing a professional sports team to alienate half the population, to fining a player for getting punched in the head and kneed in the face, the NHL has truly outdone

  Ryan Johansen has been in the news lately. In 2015-16, the young budding star of a centre was dealt to the Nashville Predators, with defenseman Seth Jones going to the Columbus Blue Jackets in return. This trade gave the Predators what they had been lacking for much of their existence: a legitimate first-line centre.

I feel bad for Washington Capitals fans. Their team could not reach the Eastern Conference Final for the sixth time in as many tries (0-6 in second round series) since Alex Ovechkin joined the team, despite three editions where the team had won the Presidents’ Trophy, awarded to the team with the most regular-season points.

My ears are absolutely ringing right now. I’m not even exaggerating. They’re hurting. – Ryan Johansen Music is meant to be heard at full volume. That’s why we attend concerts, or roll the car windows down and turn the volume up. Nashville, the self-proclaimed “Music City,” knows all about rockin’ loud music, but on Sunday, the
