The conversations around the NFL and NHL are dominated these days by two players whose recent actions have people questioning the continued relevance of longtime macho cultural norms. Perhaps the solution is to let those two duke it out...
This time in the (Mile) High City. I hope the guys have enjoyed the rest, because they've got 6 games in the next 11 days. After playing 3 in the last 11.
The Nashville Predators have made a goaltending switch ahead of tomorrow night's game at Colorado, sending Magnus Hellberg back to Milwaukee
The Predators young guns are firing on all cylinders and are currently riding an eight game point steak that dates all the way back to the start of the season.
Young forwards can draw Rookie of the Year consideration with flashy goals or jaw-dropping assists, but defensemen usually require a more nuanced consideration. Today over at Sports On Earth, the Nashville blueliner gets his due.
After 14 games the Preds are 7-5-2, which is...not great. But given Pekka's absence, along with the Lack of Scoring, things could be much, much worse. So from what you've seen so far, what are your impressions of this team?
One OTF reader believes he knows why David Legwand is off to such a hot start, leading the team in scoring at nearly a point-per-game pace.
What's up with all these off-days? I mean seriously. What am I supposed to do when there's only 2 games a week? I'm sure the players don't mind the rest, but wouldn't it be better, I don't know, TOWARDS THE END OF THE SEASON instead of week 5?
Just like Thursday in Phoenix, the Nashville Predators got out to a big lead on the road. Just like Thursday, they blew that lead in the 3rd period. But unlike Thursday, this time they pulled out a big win.
