but no team can fall more than one spot… and of course the lower you fall, the higher your odds are in ‘winning’.. we’re simply at the point where it’s in our best interest to have the best odds we can get…..   when you talk about fan morale, a couple things come to my mind off hand… one, we only have one more home game, so the ‘impact’ on the marginal hockey fan is minimized to a degree… and any very high pick should generate enough enthusiasim/hope to offset one more home loss to those casual fans, and what’s 4 more losses to the hardcore fan at this time when we are the ones that know we’re basically icing an AHL team at this point anyway?. 4,568 posts Posted Yesterday, 01:43 PM painful to even think hockey right now, and especially to post.. but a man has to simply put his head down and drive on when times get tough..   just a word on the CHI OT loss.. the kids played hard and almost won this game despite the odds stacked against them.. youthful enthusiasm does great things at times, and was readily evident in our effort. source: http://fans.predators.nhl.com/community/topic/8324-observations-version-50/page-38

Predators lose, miss playoffs

Nashville Predators and Vancouver Canucks are involved in a fight

Kesler scored two goals and Luongo made 36 saves to lead the Vancouver Canucks to a 5-2 win over the Predators on Monday.. Derek Roy , Jason Garrison, and Alex Burrows also scored for Vancouver, which has won five of its past six.. Daniel Sedin , Henrik Sedin , and Jannik Hansen each had a pair of assists.. Nick Spaling and Bobby Butler scored for the Predators, who have lost a franchise-high seven consecutive games.. They have won just once in their past 11 games.. Monday’s loss eliminated the Predators from postseason contention.. Nashville had qualified for the playoffs in seven of the past eight seasons.. ”We still have to play hard,” Nashville captain Shea Weber said.. ”It’s obviously tough.. We have to find a way to battle here in the last games and try to get some wins.” Prior to the singing of the national anthems, a moment of silence was observed in remembrance of the victims of Monday’s bombings at the Boston Marathon..

NHL 14 cover player? It could be Brandon Yip of the Nashville Predators

an average offensive year for most players.. He’s about as well known to the casual hockey fan at the backup goalie for Rimouski Oceanic.. His inclusion as a cover candidate is inexplicable: He’s either being set up as a jobber for Mike Fisher ’s advancement to the next round or fulfills some sort of alphabetical of which we’re not aware.. Were they going to Shea Weber and just clicked the wrong box at the end of the roster?. All that snark aside … there’s obviously something endearing about a hard-working, unsung player like Yip getting a nomination like this.. The great misconception about the “Vote for Rory” campaign in 2007 was that Rory Fitzpatrick was being treated like a joke.. Maybe he was, to some; but overall, he was symbolic of the lunch-pail, blue-collar player that never wins awards or all-star game berths.. “Vote for Yipper”?. We’ll, we’re still in the preliminary nomination rounds.. “Nom Yipper.” There we go.. Doesn’t matter. source: http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nhl-puck-daddy/nhl-14-cover-player-could-brandon-yip-nashville-181131464–nhl.html

Hawks beat Predators 5-4 for 7th straight win

(AP Photo/Jim Prisching)   text size: A A A By Associated Press Marian Hossa scored a power-play goal just 52 seconds into overtime and the streaking Blackhawks swept the season series against the Nashville Predators for the first time with a 5-4 victory Friday night.. With Rich Clune in the penalty box serving a four-minute minor for high sticking, Patrick Kane sent a pass across the ice to Hossa, who one-timed it past Pekka Rinne for his 17th goal of the season.. Slumping Nashville has dropped eight in a row and 11 of 12 overall.. Matt Halischuk had two goals and Kevin Henderson scored in his first NHL game, but the Predators still lost to the Blackhawks for the fourth time this month and the sixth consecutive occasion dating to last season.. Chicago and Nashville were tied at 2 after the first period, and exchanged goals again in the second.. Kane gave the Blackhawks the lead when he got a pass from Bryan Bickell and slid the puck between Rinne’s legs for his team-best 21st of the season at 9:20, but Halischuk then got his second of the game when he followed his own shot on a breakaway, making it 3-3 with 7:29 left in the period.. Handzus intercepted a pass by Victor Bartley midway through the third and beat Rinne into the top of the goal, giving Chicago the lead once again.. It was the second of the season for the veteran center, who is in his second stint with the Blackhawks after he was acquired in a trade with San Jose on April 1.. But the Predators tied it when Bobby Butler rushed in for a rebound score with 3½ minutes remaining, beating Corey Crawford high into the net. source: http://www.dailyherald.com/article/20130419/sports/704199543
