Nashville Concludes Four-Game Homestand Seeking Third Consecutive Win

by Thomas Willis @TomAWillis / Digital Manager & Producer

The Predators' longtime assistant general manager, Paul Fenton, returns to Nashville for the first time as the GM of the Minnesota Wild. 

Nashville (4-1-0) will aim to spoil Fenton's initial trip back to Bridgestone Arena with their third-straight victory and fifth in six games to begin the 2018-19 campaign. The Preds topped the New York Islanders, 5-2, in their most recent outing, game No. 3 in a four-game homestand.

The Wild (1-1-2) have gone to overtime or a shootout in their last three games, but have won just once.

Below is a Predators projected lineup based on Monday's full morning skate. Every Preds skater was present for the session:

Nashville Concludes Four-Game Homestand with Visit from Minnesota

by Brooks Bratten @brooksbratten / Senior Communications & Content Coordinator

The Nashville Predators will try for their third consecutive win tonight as they conclude their four-game homestand by welcoming the Minnesota Wild to Bridgestone Arena.

It's the first of four meetings this season between the Central Division rivals, and the first visit back to Nashville for Wild General Manager Paul Fenton, formerly the Preds assistant GM for the past 11 seasons.

After being shut out by the Flames on Tuesday night in Nashville, the Predators have rattled off wins over Winnipeg, and most recently, the New York Islanders, by a combined score of 8-2. The Preds have won four of five games on the season, and they're beginning to like their efforts more often than not in the early going.

Nashville Completes Season Series with New York; Barry Trotz Returns

by Thomas Willis @TomAWillis / Digital Manager & Producer

Act three of a four-game homestand will see the Nashville Predators complete their season series with the New York Islanders. 

The Predators (3-1-0) handed the Islanders (2-1-0) their first loss of the season last Saturday evening in a 4-3 win. Both teams won their most recent contests, and they will now complete their two-game season series just 10 days into the 2018-19 season. 

Nashville held a full morning skate at Bridgestone Arena on Saturday morning, with every player participating. Below is a Predators projected lineup based on the session:

Season Series Between Predators and Islanders Already Set to Conclude Tonight in Nashville

by Brooks Bratten @brooksbratten / Senior Communications & Content Coordinator

The Nashville Predators will try for their fourth win in five tries to start the 2018-19 season, as they wrap up their two-game series with the New York Islanders at Bridgestone Arena.

One week ago, it was Viktor Arvidsson who scored twice to lead the Preds to a 4-3 win over the Isles in Brooklyn and a sweep of the New York road trip. The Predators will now have an opportunity to top the Islanders once more in their first season under former Nashville bench boss Barry Trotz.

The Preds did not take to the ice on Friday following their 3-0 shutout victory over the Winnipeg on Thursday. The club did hold meetings, however, and the power play was surely a topic of discussion after going 0-for-9 with the man advantage against the Jets.

It's a Playoff Rematch in Smashville as the Predators Continue Their Four-Game Homestand

by Thomas Willis @TomAWillis / Digital Manager & Producer

A second look at Round Two comes tonight in Nashville as the Winnipeg Jets visit Bridgestone Arena for part two of the Predators' four-game homestand.

Nashville (2-1-0) fell in Game 7 to Winnipeg this past postseason, but will get another chance at the Jets this evening. The Predators were shut out on Tuesday night by the Calgary Flames. The Jets (2-1-0) prevailed in their home opener versus the Los Angeles Kings on Tuesday.

The Predators held an optional morning skate on Thursday's morning. Below is a Predators projected lineup based on Tuesday's game:

Nashville Hosts Winnipeg in Postseason Rematch

by Brooks Bratten @brooksbratten / Senior Communications & Content Coordinator

It didn't take long for a postseason rematch to arrive.

For the first time since their Round Two meeting during last spring's Stanley Cup Playoffs, the Nashville Predators and Winnipeg Jets will get together tonight at Bridgestone Arena. It's the first of four meetings between the two Central Division rivals; Winnipeg defeated Nashville in seven games last May.

The Preds will try to bounce back tonight after a 3-0 defeat at the hands of the Calgary Flames during Tuesday's home opener in Nashville, their first loss of the young season. Combine the frustration of that defeat with the first rematch against the Jets and there is bound to be a better start this evening.

"The games against them are always tough, they're physical and they're fast," Predators Captain Roman Josi said of facing the Jets. "You saw it last year, and not just in the playoffs, in the regular season, too. They're always good games, fast-paced games, so it's always a lot of fun playing them."

Nashville Hosts Calgary with Banners Set to Rise at Home Opener

by Brooks Bratten @brooksbratten / Senior Communications & Content Coordinator

After going two-for-two in New York City to start the new season, the Nashville Predators return to Tennessee to open their home slate tonight - a meeting with the Calgary Flames at Bridgestone Arena.

It's the first of three outings between the clubs this season; Nashville will visit Calgary twice before the New Year to conclude the season series.

Prior to this evening's contest, the Preds will raise three more banners to the rafters to commemorate their success during the 2017-18 campaign. While the group will appreciate the moment to reflect on the past, the banners will also serve as a reminder of what's still to come.

Road Trip to New York Concludes with Lineup Changes, Contest Versus Former Head Coach

by Thomas Willis @TomAWillis / Digital Manager & Producer

Game two in New York City arrives for the Nashville Predators in the form of a contest in Brooklyn against the Islanders.

Nashville (1-0-0) used a long-range, empty-net goal by Colton Sissons as the ultimate game-winner in their Opening Night contest against the New York Rangers on Thursday. Pekka Rinne made 34 saves to record his first victory since winning the Vezina Trophy this summer. 

The Isles (1-0-0) welcomed their new head coach, Barry Trotz, to the organization by picking up a 2-1 overtime win in Carolina on Thursday. 

The Predators held a full morning skate at Barclays Center on Saturday, with all 13 forwards, eight defensemen and two goaltenders present.

Nashville Tries to Start Season 2-0-0 with Meeting in Brooklyn

by Brooks Bratten @brooksbratten / Senior Communications & Content Coordinator

Two evenings after an Opening Night win in Manhattan, the Predators will try for a clean sweep of New York City when they face the Islanders tonight at Barclays Center in Brooklyn. It's the first of two meetings this season between the two clubs, with the other set for next Saturday night in Nashville.

Nashville topped the Rangers on Thursday night at Madison Square Garden by a 3-2 final and will try to start the season 2-0-0 for the first time in the last three years.

As is usually the case in the first outing of the campaign, the Predators say there was good and bad on Opening Night, but the win was most important in setting the tone for what's to come, including tonight's meeting with the Isles.
