Smashville News:

Once again, there should be a review of last night’s efforts either to the right or below this post.

Johansen week to week for Predators with upper-body injury |

Strong Relationship Between Preds, adidas Delivers Reverse Retro Jersey |
"The Predators will look a bit different when they hit the ice on Monday night in Nashville." I can't say I'm wild about this jersey, but it was interesting to see the blue helmets again.

"Win an autographed, personalized RR jersey courtesy of Vanderbilt Health!"

Support from Preds Helps Vanderbilt Doctors, Nurses Through Pandemic |
