Early returns positive for Predators' Laviolette

Sunday, 10.12.2014 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

John Manasso - NHL.com Correspondent

NASHVILLE -- As the Nashville Predators prepared for a meeting that preceded their season opener on Thursday, general manager David Poile stood in the runway glancing at the players and coaching staff in the dressing room whom he had assembled. Poile admitted to being anxious.

Even for one of the longest-tenured general managers in NHL history, it was understandable. For the first time since 1998, Poile had hired a new coach in Peter Laviolette who brought a new style, and, as a consequence, Poile had remade the roster.

If Nashville's season opener is any indication, then the early returns are positive. The Predators outshot the Ottawa Senators 37-20 and, while down by a goal in the third period, struck three times within a span of less than nine minutes to earn a 3-2 victory.

Nashville ranked 23rd in the NHL last season in shots per game (29.0) and tied for 18th in the NHL in goals-for per game (2.61). As a team that has struggled offensively for the past couple of seasons, the opener brought some welcoming sights.

"We cared about one thing," NHL all-time leading scorer Wayne Gretzky said to open the night. "We cared about winning the Stanley Cup. We were just kids and we thought we knew everything. We didn't. But we knew how to play hockey."

Lightning's Stamkos gives tips to Rays pitcher Cobb

Friday, 10.10.2014 / 3:12 PM / News

NHL.com

Tampa Bay Lightning captain Steven Stamkos is among the best in the world at what he does. The same could be said for Tampa Bay Rays pitcher Alex Cobb.

Cobb, along with Stamkos and some of his teammates, showed their skills in each sport Friday at Amalie Arena.

After talking to coach Jon Cooper and watching the Lightning practice from the bench, Cobb put on skates and shot pucks with Stamkos. According to the Tampa Bay Times, Stamkos said Cobb's hockey skills needed some work but that Stamkos was impressed by Cobb, a right-handed pitcher, shot the puck left-handed and right-handed.

"It's fun to have athletes come out and experience the sport and realize it's a little tougher than they expected, especially out on the ice," Stamkos said according to the Tampa Tribune. "It's a bit easier for us to throw a baseball around than for them to get on skates. But he showed a lot of improvement in the 15 minutes we were out there, so it was good."
