Blackhawks crack Predators home ice edge

Posted: December 7, 2014

In the stands, Blackhawks fans set the tone early —cheering loudly over "God Bless America"  before the puck dropped.

On the ice, the team did the same — building a two-goal lead and holding off a late rally to defeat the Predators 3-1 on Saturday night at Bridgestone Arena.

"It was a playoff game — it was fast hockey," Predators forward Colin Wilson said. "A lot of skill, a lot of plays. I think that's what you'll expect the next times that we match up against them."

Posted: December 5, 2014

The Nashville Predators faced the St. Louis Blues for supremacy in the Central Division again on Thursday with the Preds prevailing 4-3.

Goaltender Martin Brodeur, the NHL’s leader in all-time wins and shutouts, was between the pipes for the Blues for the first time this season. The 42-year-old sat out the first two-plus months of the 2014-15 campaign before signing with St. Louis and starting for the club against Nashville. The Preds weren’t interested in giving him a touching comeback story, however.

“We wanted to throw everything at him that we could,” Preds forward Mike Fisher said of Brodeur. “He hadn’t played any or practiced a lot either, so we wanted to try and take advantage of that. [Colin] Wilson made a great play at the end there to get us the win...These battles with the Blues have been so intense, so to get this victory was huge.”

"It should send a message to our team," said Hurricanes goaltender Cam Ward, who made 32 saves. "We're playing some pretty good hockey teams. Not only are we hanging with them, we've got every chance to win games. It's a confidence-booster. We can feel really happy about tonight."

Colin Wilson scored with 2:12 remaining to give the Nashville Predators a 2-1 win against the Columbus Blue Jackets at Bridgestone Arena on Saturday.

Wilson was able to collect a rebound of a shot by Craig Smith and put it in a wide-open net.

"We were just hard on the puck and I got it over to (Calle Jamkrok) [and Jarnkrok got it over to [Smith]," Wilson said. "He had a good shot. I just had to put it in the net."
