    Nashville Predators Stun Red Hot New Jersey Devils in Exciting Overtime Win

    Nashville Predators Stun Red Hot New Jersey Devils in Exciting Overtime Win

    The Nashville Predators kicked off their tough December schedule last night against the New Jersey Devils, one of the best team's in the entire league right now. The Devils showed why they are at the top of the rankings, but the Predators gritted out a big 4-3 overtime win in a game that played out like a Disney sports movie. On today's Locked On Predators, we give you our "one word" to describe the exciting Predators' win in New Jersey. Nick and Ann look at the stats and break down the ebbs and flows of the game. What did the Predators do well to keep the game close enough to tie it up in regulation? We also take a look at the "sung" and "unsung" heroes of the game. Juuse Saros and Ryan Johansen came in clutch for the Preds, but who else's hard work helped earn Nashville a big two points? Finally, we tell you why this thrilling overtime win is a positive indicator for Nashville and how a fast and furious game against the Devils last night could affect the Preds in tonight's matchup against the New York Islanders.

    Nashville Predators vs. Top Ranked New Jersey Devils and Other NHL Surprises

    Nashville Predators vs. Top Ranked New Jersey Devils and Other NHL Surprises

    Tonight the Nashville Predators begin their brutal December schedule with a game against one of the best teams in the entire league - the New Jersey Devils. On today's Locked On Predators podcast we take a closer look at this matchup. Can the Nashville Predators handle the high powered offense of the Devils and keep up with a team that is at the top of their division? Nick and Ann tell you what is going so well for New Jersey and what the Preds will have to do to keep this game competitive. We'll share the one thing we would tell head coach John Hynes if he called us ahead of puck drop to ask for our advice. The Devils' dominance has come as a surprise to many, so we decided to take a look at other early season surprises in the NHL. What teams are performing way above expectation? We talk about the one central division team that has us raising our eyebrows the most and debate whether their success is sustainable. We also take a look at those surprising individual performances across the league. Who are the two players whose performances have caught our eye? Finally, not every surprise is good surprise, so we discuss the teams that have been startling letdowns so far.

    Impressive Stats, Small Margin of Victory for Predators Over Anaheim Ducks

    Impressive Stats, Small Margin of Victory for Predators Over Anaheim Ducks

    The Nashville Predators finally returned to their home ice at Bridgestone Arena last night as they faced off against the Anaheim Ducks. The Predators came away with a 2-1 overtime win, and on today's Locked On Predators we break down last night's game. Nick and Ann share their "one word" to describe the game referencing both a popular Christmas movie scene and a familiar TV show character to explain their takes on the victory. We will tell you why the scoreboard and the stats sheet are a little harder to reconcile after last night's game, and which players came up big to ensure the Predators walked away with two points against one of the lowest ranking teams in the league. We talk about why the Preds have had trouble putting points on the board in the last few games - or are we just making excuses? Head Coach John Hynes ran with some interesting line combinations against the Ducks. We tell you how we feel about last night's lineup and why we believe fans will see more of the same going forward. Finally, we break down just how much Nashville needs to change and what the team must continue doing well as they stare down a tough December schedule.

    It Could Be a December to Remember for the Nashville Predators

    It Could Be a December to Remember for the Nashville Predators

    The Nashville Predators finally return to the ice at Bridgestone Arena after an unexpected break, and tonight they take on the Anaheim Ducks. On today's Locked On Predators we preview not only tonight's matchup against the Ducks but also take a look ahead to a critical December schedule. The Preds and the Ducks have a cantankerous history, and Nick and Ann tell you why that makes this game a perfect opportunity tfor the Predators after two postponed games. We'll reveal the two Anaheim players that could give Nashville the most trouble and what areas of the Preds' game may be the key to getting a win tonight at home. Then we turn our attention to the December schedule and break down the biggest matchups the Preds will face. We also tell you why games against Colorado, Edmonton, and Dallas may NOT be the most important games the Predators must win. Finally, we lay out our argument for why December will be the most important month of the season for the Nashville Predators.

    Quarter Season Review: What Is Right with the Nashville Predators 20 Games In and What Needs Fixing?

    Quarter Season Review: What Is Right with the Nashville Predators 20 Games In and What Needs Fixing?

    The Nashville Predators are about a quarter of the way through the 2022-2023 season, and it is time to evaluation the first 20 games. On today's Locked On Predators, we have a special edition of "Plus/Minus" where we look at the first quarter of the Preds season to see what has gone well and what needs improvement. One player Nick and Ann agree on that has been a big plus is Juuso Pärssinen. Even though he has only played 6 games in the NHL so far, what makes us both so high on the 21 year old forward to award him two pluses? Another player in the line up earns a solid plus from Ann but Nick feels is part of a problem plaguing the Preds 20 games in. We'll debate the root cause of that minus. We give out a very surprising plus to a player who isn't getting much love on social media from Preds fans. We'll tell you why we believe this under appreciated player deserves a plus at this point in the season. Finally, we talk about the cancelled games at Bridgestone Arena over the weekend. How will the unexpected time off from competition affect the Predators? We discuss that on today's Locked On Predators podcast.

    Predators Game Preview and Thanksgiving Hockey Special!

    Predators Game Preview and Thanksgiving Hockey Special!

    Tonight the Nashville Predators will take on the Detroit Red Wings in a Thanksgiving Eve game in the Motor City. On today's Locked On Predators we take a quick look at what could make this Red Wings game a challenge tonight. Nashville and Detroit have been on two different trajectories early in this season, and we'll talk about where each team may have an advantage on the ice tonight. It is also our Thanksgiving Eve hockey special, and this year we compare the Nashville Predators' roster to attractions in the Macys Thanksgiving Day parade! Nick and Ann debate which Preds player is best represented by the Diary of a Wimpy Kid balloon, which player is most like the Broadway performances, and why Michael McCarron is obviously the Jolly Green Giant float. Finally, we will tell you who on the Predators roster best represents the arrival of Santa at the end of the parade. We will have you ready for Thanksgiving (and the Macy's parade!) on this episode of Locked On Predators!
