Poile Relishing Success of Hockey in Nashville

City and Team Have Entered Special Bond as Predators Advance to First Stanley Cup Final

by John Glennon @glennonsports / glennonsports@gmail.com

In the months after David Poile and the Washington Capitals parted ways some 20 years ago, he found himself with an interesting choice:

Should he accept an offer to become the next general manager of the Toronto Maple Leafs, an Original Six hockey franchise - and winner of 13 Stanley Cups - that was trying to regain its once-proud stature?

Or should he try his luck in the middle of Tennessee, serving as the first GM of a Predators franchise that had yet to sign a single player?

Preds Win Western Conference, Clinch Berth in Stanley Cup Final

Colton Sissons Tallies Hat Trick, Nashville Will Play for Stanley Cup

by Brooks Bratten @brooksbratten / Communications & Content Coordinator

The Nashville Predators will have at least one banner to hang in Bridgestone Arena next fall.

Colton Sissons recorded a hat trick and the Preds defeated the Anaheim Ducks by a 6-3 final in Game Six to advance to their first Stanley Cup Final in franchise history. It's undoubtedly the most monumental victory the team has ever had, and although they're not done yet, they're going to enjoy this one for the night.

"It's a dream come true," goaltender Pekka Rinne said. "But it's a funny thing, though. With everything that's happening around us, you still feel hungry, and now we have a chance to play for the Cup. It's a pretty amazing feeling. And you've been working for that for a long, long time."

Game Six couldn't have started any better for the Preds, as Austin Watson threw a puck at the net just 1:21 into the contest, and the shot found its way off an Anaheim defender and past Jonathan Bernier for a 1-0 Nashville lead. Sissons doubled that number at the 8:47 mark, wiring a shot into the twine to give the Preds a 2-0 advantage after one period.

Western Conference Final, Game Six: Ducks vs. Preds

Nashville Looks to Clinch Berth in Stanley Cup Final Tonight

by Brooks Bratten @brooksbratten / Communications & Content Coordinator

The Nashville Predators return home tonight for the biggest game in franchise history and a chance to go where they've never gone before.

With a 3-1 win in Game Five of the Western Conference Final over the Anaheim Ducks, the Preds are one victory away from clinching a berth in the Stanley Cup Final, a possibility they can't help but think about. And that's not necessarily a bad thing.

"The guys know what the next step is, and it's going to be a hard-fought game," Nashville Head Coach Peter Laviolette said. "So whatever pushes your buttons to make you realize where you're going to be at, then I think they have to be dialed in for that game. So if that's one way of motivating, that's a good way."

Three Things for Ducks vs. Preds Game Six

With Berth in the Stanley Cup Final on the Line, Preds Aren't Underestimating Their Opponent

by Thomas Willis @TomAWillis / Digital Manager & Producer

18 and 10: Forward depth was the topic of discussion in Round Two when Vernon Fiddler and Cody McLeod scored the game-winning goals in Games One and Three, respectively, against the St. Louis Blues. Oh how naive we all were.

Following the insertion of Frederick Gaudreau, an undrafted 24-year-old forward making his Stanley Cup Playoffs debut, into the lineup on Saturday, the Predators tied an all-time NHL record. With 18 different forwards used in the 2017 playoffs by Nashville, no other franchise can say they've utilized more.

"It's huge, especially in the playoffs," d-man Roman Josi said of the Preds depth stepping up. "You need that. You have so many different guys contributing on the offense, and it's huge. It's been huge for us. A lot of guys scoring goals and it's huge in the playoffs.

Update on Preds Forward Ryan Johansen

Preds Center Suffered Acute Compartment Syndrome of the Left Thigh, is Expected to Make a Full Recovery

by Press Release @PredsNHL / NashvillePredators.com

Nashville, TN - Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile gave this update on the condition of forward Ryan Johansen on Sunday:

"On Thursday, May 25, Ryan Johansen was treated for an acute compartment syndrome of the left thigh. Rapid diagnosis and treatment are critical to prevent complications. His symptoms developed shortly after the end of Game Four in Nashville, and as they progressed, he was diagnosed, transported to Vanderbilt University Medical Center and had surgery performed by head team physician Dr. Jed Kuhn within two hours of his diagnosis. As a result, he had no permanent injury to his muscle, nerves or blood vessels and we expect a full and complete recovery. The Predators would like to thank Vanderbilt Life Flight Paramedics, the VUMC Emergency Department, Operating Room Nurses, and Anesthesiologists for their expedient and excellent care."

Depth Comes Through, Preds Take 3-2 Lead in Western Conference Final

Pontus Aberg Scores Game-Winner, Nashville Moves One Win Away from Stanley Cup Final

by Brooks Bratten @brooksbratten / Communications & Content Coordinator

In Game Five of the Western Conference Final, the Nashville Predators faced their biggest bout of adversity yet. No problem.

Pontus Aberg tallied the winner in the third period and the Predators defeated the Anaheim Ducks by a 3-1 count in Game Five to take a 3-2 lead in the series. Nashville is now just one win away from reaching their first Stanley Cup Final as they gutted out one of their most complete victories of the postseason without their two top centerman.

After Ryan Johansen suffered a thigh injury in Game Four that ended his season, and with Captain Mike Fisher out for Game Five as well, the Preds regrouped up front and found new ways to shut the Ducks down.
