Nashville Looks to Start New Win Streak on Second Half of Back-to-Back in San Jose

by Brooks Bratten @brooksbratten / Senior Communications & Content Coordinator

The Nashville Predators will look to start a new winning streak on the road tonight when they face the Sharks in San Jose. It's the second of three meetings between the two this season; the Preds dropped a 5-4 decision in Nashville back in October.

Monday night saw the Preds earn a point in Anaheim, before ultimately falling to the Ducks in a shootout. It was Nashville's first loss away from home on the season, snapping a streak of eight consecutive road victories.

The group still has points in all nine of their road contests - and points in six straight overall - but the Preds know they have more to give than what they showed against the Ducks.

NSH Recap: Rinne solid in 2-1 SO loss to Ducks

Pekka Rinne made 29 saves on 30 shots, but the Predators suffered their first road loss of the season, falling to the Ducks in a shootout

  • 04:31 •

A goal from Kevin Fiala and a behind-the-back save from Pekka Rinne helped the Nashville Predators force overtime, but the Anaheim Ducks prevailed, 2-1, in a shootout on Monday night at Honda Center.

With a point earned in the standings, Nashville's point streak on the road reached the nine-game mark. Seeing its franchise-record and near-NHL-best road winning mark come to an end, however, wasn't easy to accept.

"We had a lot more to give," Preds defenseman Ryan Ellis said. "[Anaheim] played well. Give them credit, they were moving their feet, they were making plays, but I thought we weren't the best version of ourselves tonight. It comes down to a shootout, and it wasn't our way this time."

Two months later, Ramsey got his first chance in Smashville.

With the help of a former NHL player that's now a League ambassador of fun, Paul Bissonnette, Ramsey made a stop at Bridgestone Arena as the Preds hosted the Boston Bruins on Nov. 3.

Projected Lineup: Predators at Ducks

Viktor Arvidsson Placed on Injured Reserve; Preds Start Back-to-Back Set in Southern California

by Thomas Willis @TomAWillis / Digital Manager & Producer

The Nashville Predators will face the Anaheim Ducks and San Jose Sharks on consecutive days in California. 

Nashville (13-3-0) erased a two-goal deficit in the third period in Dallas on Saturday to win in overtime, but lost Viktor Arvidsson to an upper-body injury. On Monday, Arvidsson was placed on Injured Reserve. The Ducks have had injury issues of their own, going 2-6-2 over their last 10 games, including a 5-1 loss on Friday to the Minnesota Wild.

The Preds held a full morning skate on Monday at Honda Center and were joined by Calle Jarnkrok (who missed Saturday's game with a lower-body injury) and Dan Hamhuis (IR; lower-body injury). Below is a projected lineup based on the session:

Nashville Visits Anaheim Looking to Extend Perfect Road Record

by Brooks Bratten @brooksbratten / Senior Communications & Content Coordinator

After a pair of wins against divisional opponents to extend their perfect road record, the Nashville Predators have headed west to California to meet the Anaheim Ducks tonight. It's the first of three meetings between the two clubs this season; Nashville will host the Ducks later this month before returning to Orange County in March.

A 4-1 win in Colorado on Wednesday led the Preds to Dallas on Saturday afternoon where they came back to defeat the Stars by a 5-4 final in overtime. Nashville scored three goals in the third period, including once with 41 seconds to play, before Mattias Ekholm ended it in the extra session.

With an 8-0-0 road record this season, the Predators are now just two road wins away from tying the NHL record for the most consecutive victories away from home to start a season.

Nashville Looks to Extend Perfect Road Record This Afternoon in Dallas

by Brooks Bratten @brooksbratten / Senior Communications & Content Coordinator

The Nashville Predators will look to continue their success away from home this afternoon when they meet the Stars in Dallas. It's the first of five meetings between the Central Division rivals.

A hat trick from Colton Sissons helped lead the Preds to their seventh road win in as many tries, when they defeated the Colorado Avalanche on Wednesday night to begin their current five-game trip. Nashville has scored at least three goals in each of their seven road outings, as they continue to extend their franchise-best start.

Forward Viktor Arvidsson remains on Injured Reserve, but did make the trip and is eligible to come off the IR at any time.

One by one, name tags were affixed, tools were distributed and volunteers dispersed across the landscape as the morning rays shone through the golden leaves of autumn.

A daunting mountain of woodchips loomed near the job site as the downtown skyscrapers kept watch off in the distance. Spirits were high. The coffee was hot. Justin Bieber blasted through the speakers.

Just as they have for seven consecutive years prior, Nashville Predators staff members descended upon a specially selected location once more, ready to build a playground from scratch.

Cancer Survivor Drops Puck for Ceremonial Faceoff, Helps Predators to Raise $81,000 on HFC Night

by Brooks Bratten @brooksbratten / Senior Communications & Content Coordinator

It was supposed to be the appointment to tell her she was cancer free.

Instead, five years after she had defeated leukemia once already, then 15-year-old Lily Hensiek got the news again. But, as the initial wave of shock and sadness began to subside, a different feeling came over her - one of determination and hope.

So, just as she did almost a decade ago, Hensiek fought - and beat - cancer again.

Broadcaster Blog: Pekka Rinne - Better with Age

Voice of the Predators Pete Weber Takes a Look at Rinne's Career to This Point

by Pete Weber @PeteWeberSports / Voice of the Predators

It's hard to believe that Pekka Rinne made his debut for the Nashville Predators in December of 2005. But it isn't so hard to believe he's still with the team - especially with the way he has performed.

It was Dec. 15 when he made his first start and the beginning was far from auspicious. The first shot he faced - from the Blackhawks' Mark Bell - eluded him for a shorthanded goal.

Demonstrating his resilience - Rinne hung in and the Preds beat Chicago, 5-3.
