Nashville Predators News & Notes

Rangers end five-game losing streak with win against Predators | NHL
As frustrated as I am with Alexei Emelin and Matt Irwin, I can't help but tip my hat to Henrik Lundqvist. The Preds threw everything but the kitchen sink at King Henrik in the 3rd period yesterday, but he proved to be more than up to the task.

Ducks' Fowler suffers lower-body injury | TSN
Yikes. The injuries in Anaheim are really starting to stack up. Ryan Miller, Hampus Lindholm, Sami Vatanen, Ryan Kesler (gag), Ryan Getzlaf, Patrick Eaves and now Cam Fowler are all currently dealing with injuries.

Sean Avery's tell-all book delivers the goods | The Hockey News
“When you went to a Rangers game with Sean Avery in the lineup, you had no idea what was going to happen, no f$%^ing clue,” he said. “It was a total coin-toss. Now, nothing happens – maybe a couple pretty goals are scored.”

Hopefully Sean Avery doesn't refer to himself in the third person throughout the whole book. Joking aside, this seems like a really fun read and I'll definitely be checking it out.

Don’t call it a gimmick: Southern Pro Hockey League striving to innovate with playoff challenge format | The Hockey News
"On Monday, the 10-team minor league announced that this season will feature a new playoff format: first round match-ups won't be determined by the traditional seeding method, but instead by way of good old-fashioned call-outs."

Yeah... that definitely sounds like a gimmick.
