All Preds Games to be Televised This Season, in HD

Finally, the Nashville Predators have worked out a TV schedule so simple even Clay Travis can figure it out.


Nashville Predators 2013 Schedule Released

Now that the NHL Lockout is finally over, teams are releasing the schedule for the 2013 regular season. For the Nashville Predators, that includes a two-week road trip after the first two games take place at Bridgestone Arena...


2013 NHL Schedule Coming Saturday Morning?

There has been a great deal of chatter going that the 2013 NHL schedule will be released Saturday morning, so check in before you head down to Bridgestone Arena for the Preds' Kickoff Celebration. They're holding an open practice between 10:00 a.m. & noon, and there will all sorts of festivities.

Report: Preds to Open at Home vs. Columbus on 1/19

Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch brings us news about the Nashville Predators' opener:

NHL Season to End in Late June

Details are dribbling out slowly but surely as the NHL continues to work on their schedule for 2013.

Sportsnet's John Shannon provides the latest details via Twitter:

Bob McKenzie Reports on 48-Game Schedule Format

If the NHL had been able to assemble a 50-game schedule, the numbers would have worked out nicely (5 games against each division opponent, plus 3 vs. the other conference opponents = 50 games). Since they can only manage 48, however, things won't quite balance out like that, as TSN's Bob McKenzie reports:

In the Central Division, you can bet that teams will be hoping to draw Columbus as their 5-game opponent, given the Blue Jackets' standing relative to the rest of the pack. Stay tuned for the release of the full 2013 NHL schedule, which should come in the next few days.


2013 Preds Schedule: 48 Games Looks Likely

While there was hope that perhaps the NHL might be able to salvage a 50-game regular season schedule, it appears now that 48 will be the magic number, with the puck dropping January 19th.
