Preds Stage Another Comeback, Ultimately Fall in Los Angeles

Bridgestone Recap: Nashville Scores Three in Third to Tie Game Before Kings Win It Late

Predators fall to Kings

NSH Recap: Predators' rally falls short in 7-4 loss

Viktor Arvidsson, Matt Duchene and Colton Sissons helped tie the game in the 3rd period, but the Predators fell to the Kings, 7-4

  • 05:03 •

That's not how the story is supposed to end. 

Trailing 4-1 in the third period, the Nashville Predators seemed destined to pull off a herculean effort again, just two days after they'd done the very same thing in their previous game. Viktor Arvidsson, Matt Duchene and Colton Sissons scored to tie the game, 4-4, in the first nine minutes of the final frame, but the Los Angeles Kings found the game-winner in the final minute of regulation on Saturday in California.

Two empty-net goals for L.A. inflated the final score to 7-4, but Duchene didn't shy away from calling the loss a "wake-up call" for the Preds. The loss drops the Predators' record to 3-2-0 and starts their three-game road trip off on a frustrating note.

The result gives the Preds a 3-1-0 record to conclude their four-game homestand on the opening week of the season, and although it was only the fourth contest of an 82-game schedule, it's already a leading candidate for game of the season.

Recap: SJS 2, NSH 5

Josi scores twice as Predators beat Sharks, 5-2

Roman Josi scored two goals and Pekka Rinne made 33 saves, leading the Predators to a 5-2 win against the Sharks

The goals just keep on coming.

Roman Josi tallied twice and the Predators scored three in the third as Nashville defeated the San Jose Sharks by a 5-2 final on Tuesday night at Bridgestone Arena. It's Nashville's second win in three tries on the young season and their 10th victory in their last 12 meetings with the Sharks on home ice.

After a 5-3 loss to Detroit on Saturday, the Preds bounced back with another strong offensive effort to give them 13 goals through their first three games of the season. That's just a taste of their capabilities in the opposition's end.

Mattias Ekholm recorded a goal and an assist, but the Predators were topped by the Red Wings at home, 5-3

  • 05:01 •

Viktor Arvidsson scored on the power play and Matt Duchene dished out two more assists, but it wasn't enough, as the Nashville Predators fell to the Detroit Red Wings by a 5-3 final on Saturday night at Bridgestone Arena.

It's Nashville's first loss on the young season, and it came against a Detroit team skating in their first game of the 2019-20 campaign.

The Preds and Red Wings traded chances throughout the night, but a slow start from the home team saw them having to play catch-up, and they were never able to find a go-ahead goal.

It's Another Walk-Off, Ryan Johansen Wins Game in OT Again

Ryan Johansen Skates Right Off the Ice After Notching the Winning Goal for the Second-Straight Preseason Finale

by Brooks Bratten @brooksbratten / Senior Communications & Content Coordinator

He walked it off - again. 

For the second consecutive preseason, Ryan Johansen fired home the overtime winner in the preseason finale and skated right out of the rink. 

With the doors to the locker room in the corner of the ice at PNC Arena, the setup allows for a unique exit to stage left - if you have a good reason. 

Johansen has found one twice now. 

"You had to chuckle a little bit, though, didn't you? When he immediately went for the door again?" Predators Head Coach Peter Laviolette laughed following the contest.

The Preds carried a 1-0 lead into the third period in Tampa Bay, but the Lightning scored three times in the final frame, including the game-winner from Nikita Kucherov with less than 40 seconds to play, to earn the win.
