How to Watch, Live Stream Jets vs. Preds

Nashville Hosts Winnipeg Without Services of Austin Watson

by Brooks Bratten @brooksbratten / Communications & Content Coordinator

The Predators conclude a three-game Central Division stretch as they welcome the Winnipeg Jets to Nashville this evening. It's the first meeting between the two foes this season; the Preds have won four of their last six outings against the Jets.

Forward Austin Watson, who received a five-minute major for boarding and a game misconduct on Saturday night, has been suspended for two games. As a result, Nashville will need to make a roster move today to fill out their lineup.

The Predators are trying to go 2-for-2 on their current home stand after defeating the Avalanche on Saturday night, scoring five or more goals for the fifth time this season, with each goal coming from a different skater.

"A lot of guys are chipping in," Preds defenseman Mattias Ekholm said. "Everyone wants to play. I think the competition is really good in here, and everyone is playing well, and that helps each other out. If you have a bad game, you know you have to be on your toes for the next one because guys are stepping up, guys are scoring, so everyone has to play on their top level every game and every night. That's just the name of our team right now."

Bitetto, Penalty Kill Help Preds to Beat Avalanche

Nashville Wins Eighth Straight Over Colorado as Preds Score Five

by Brooks Bratten @brooksbratten / Communications & Content Coordinator

Five different Predators found the back of the net as Nashville defeated the Colorado Avalanche by a 5-2 final on Saturday night at Bridgestone Arena. The result gives Nashville their eighth consecutive victory over the Avalanche and 11 wins on the season, six of them coming at home.

After a frustrating loss on Thursday to Minnesota, a bounce-back effort from the Preds was on display on Saturday, with the penalty kill playing a starring role and contributions coming in throughout the lineup.

"It was a good night," Predators defenseman Anthony Bitetto said. "We can't win games [taking too many penalties]. We're fortunate enough that Pekka Rinne played one heck of a game. I think it's a good win after coming off that loss in Minnesota."

Projected Lineup: Avalanche vs. Predators

Former Preds Colin Wilson, Samuel Girard and Gabriel Bourque Could Dress for Opposition Tonight

by Thomas Willis @TomAWillis / Digital Manager & Producer

The Nashville Predators open a three-game home stand by hosting the Colorado Avalanche for the second time this season (at 7 p.m. CT). 

Nashville (10-6-2) lost a third-period lead and saw their five-game winning streak come to an end at the hands of the Minnesota Wild on Thursday night. With no changes in injury statuses or call-ups, the Preds are expected to dress the same lineup they've utilized for the past two games. 

The Avalanche (9-7-1) are making their second and final trip to Music City; they won their last contest 6-2 over the Washington Capitals, but lost their first visit to Nashville, 4-1, on Oct. 17. Former Preds Colin Wilson, Samuel Girard and Gabriel Bourque could suit up for the Avs, while Vladislav Kamenev was placed on Injured Reserve this week.

Saturday's morning skate was optional for the Preds, here's a projected lineup based on Friday's practice:

Nashville Begins Three-Game Home Stand In Search of Eighth-Straight Win Against Colorado

by Brooks Bratten @brooksbratten / Communications & Content Coordinator

A three-game home stand begins tonight in Nashville as the Predators host the Colorado Avalanche at Bridgestone Arena. It's Colorado's second and final visit to the Music City this season; the Preds will visit the Avs twice in 2018.

Nashville will be looking to start a new streak tonight after a string of five-straight wins came to an end with a loss in Minnesota on Thursday night.

"You have to be as consistent as possible," Nashville center Ryan Johansen said after the loss. "We've been doing a good job of finding ways to get wins, and tonight, we just have to learn from it and move on."

Lindback Enjoying Second Stint with Preds Organization

Goaltender Making Most of Call-Up from AHL, Relishes Chance to Return to Nashville

by Brooks Bratten @brooksbratten / Communications & Content Coordinator

No matter when Anders Lindback has owned a stall in the Predators locker room - either during the first two seasons of his NHL career beginning in 2010 or on Friday afternoon during his recent call up to Nashville - there's been a constant: Swedes.

"I guess we [Swedes] have a good reputation," Lindback laughed. "We've fooled everybody."

The Swedish contingent in Music City gained another member on Thursday morning when the goaltender was recalled from AHL Milwaukee with Juuse Saros being sent to the Admirals in a move designed to get Saros more playing time.

Win Streak Ends as Preds Fall to Wild

Minnesota Scores Four Unanswered in Third Period to Beat Nashville

by Brooks Bratten & Thomas Willis @PredsNHL /

The Minnesota Wild scored four unanswered goals and came back to defeat the Nashville Predators by a 6-4 final on Tuesday night at Xcel Energy center. The result ends Nashville's win streak at five, only their second loss in the month of November.

In a game that saw the Preds hold a 3-0 lead in the second period, Minnesota stormed back to win their fourth straight and leave Nashville searching for answers as to what went wrong.

"We weren't good," Predators Head Coach Peter Laviolette said. "We stopped playing after 20 minutes."

"You can't sit back," Captain Roman Josi said. "Teams are too good, and if you sit back, they're going to make you pay."
