This defense is really doing some things to my blood pressure, and I don’t mean that in a good way this year.19-year old Sam Girard continued his solid play early in the season for Nashville with the first goal of his NHL career to tie the game at 1-1.

Captain Jamie Benn: Stars not playing good enough, hard enough in 1-3-0 start

“I think everyone can play better, but I’ve just been trying to get on forechecks, trying to be solid defensively and score goals in front of the net,” Hartnell (pictured) said. “I’ve gotten a couple right there. So that’s exciting.”

They also need to figure out whether Hanzal will be suspended for his hit on Nashville defenseman Yannick Weber. Hanzal caught Weber in the face with a shoulder as Weber was reaching for a puck, and he received a five-minute major.

This made it a 1-1 game. Then a few minutes later, Girard assisted on Filip Forsberg’s go-ahead goal. The Predators lead the Stars 2-1 with nine minutes left in the period.

Radulov left the team in 2008 with one year remaining on his contract and joined the Kontinental Hockey League, thus creating a controversy not only with the Predators but with the NHL.Let friends in your social network know what you are reading about

The Nashville Predators were postseason darlings last year after sneaking into the playoffs in the last wild card spot. They had better consistency in winning last year than the Stars did. They had five 3-game winning streaks and two 4-game winning streaks after an inconsistent first few weeks of the season.

Now reading the latest in Stars NewsSeeing Weber shaken up didn’t provide a wakeup call for the Predators. Maybe Peter Laviolette yelling at them regarding a poor power play might get them back on track?Prospects from both sides set for one more contest on Tuesday

With Roman Josi not playing and Yannick Weber leaving the game after a dirty hit by Martin Hanzal in the first period, the Predators needed the rest of the blueline to step up. Girard did that.
It’s one of countless things the Predators do around Nashville. All pro sports teams should and do get involved in their communities, but it’s well-documented that this franchise is especially good at it. And for Gail and her Canadian, hockey-crazed family, this was a dream opportunity.

Love how the NHL gives major penalties on clean hits, for fear of further concussion lawsuits.

Nashville has surrendered the first goal in three of its four games.

“It was not good enough. We’re not sticking to it for 60 minutes,” Benn said. “We’re not playing hard enough. Good start, good first period, and they pretty much took over after that.”Stars defenseman John Klingberg recorded a goal and an assist (1-1=2) on Tuesday night against the Detroit Red Wings for the 32nd multi-point game of his NHL career (last: two assists, April 8, 2017 vs. Colorado). Klingberg now leads the team with four points (2-2=4) through three games this season. Among League blueliners, he is tied for first with two goals and shares fourth with four points. Away from American Airlines Center during the 2016-17 campaign, Klingberg ranked third on the club and led all team defensemen in 20 points (4-16=20) in 40 games.The native of Gothenburg, Sweden has skated in 13 career games against the Predators, registering eight points (0-8=8) with a +7 plus/minus rating. During the 2016-17 season, Klingberg finished tied for 10th among NHL defensemen with 49 points (13-36=49) in a career-high 80 games.

Nick Bonino went home Tuesday evening and recounted the Predators’ wild 6-5 victory against the Philadelphia Flyers to wife Lauren, a former collegiate hockey player.
The Flyers picked up two penalties on the same play with 2:41 left, giving Nashville a 5-on-3 advantage. Hakstol lost his challenge for offside, and a delay-of-game penalty gave Nashville the man advantage.
Viktor Arvidsson gave Nashville the insurance goal in the third period for a 3-1 lead.  It is the second goal of the season for Arvidsson. PK Subban got his first goal of the season on the empty net in the closing minutes for a 4-1 lead.

Then the Flyers turned the celebration into a game. McDonald scored his first goal on a slap shot at 10:19, and Patrick, the second overall pick in the June draft, got his first career goal 16 seconds later on a wrister. Philadelphia took advantage of its third power play in the period when Filppula scored on a wrister at 15:05, tying it at 3.

“It’s a good confidence booster,” Rinne said of the win. “We are .500 right now, and we’re building up more solid games together. That’s our goal, to improve every game. The big word has been ‘consistency’ from the past couple of years, and that’s what we’ve really tried to improve and really tried to focus on. Now we’re going to Chicago next, and it’ll be a good challenge for us.”Nashville Predators defenseman Samuel Girard tallied an assist in his NHL debut Tuesday night against the Philadelphia Flyers. Two nights later Girard scored the first goal of his young NHL career, tying the Predators’ game against the Dallas Stars at 1-all at the 3:27 mark of the second period.
It wasn’t until Predators defenseman Samuel Girard scored his first NHL goal early in the second period that the team found some rhythm. The strong play of Rinne, who made 30 saves, helped to protect Nashville’s lead. Predators forward Viktor Arvidsson netted a breakaway goal with 4:51 left, then defenseman P.K. Subban threw in an empty-netter. 

The rookie blueliner fired home his first NHL goal and added another helper in Thursday’s 4-1 win over Dallas, giving him three points in his first two career outings. The normally soft-spoken Girard let out a burst of pure elation after taking a feed from P.K. Subban and watching his slap shot fly into the cage, a moment he’ll undoubtedly never forget.Predators captain Roman Josi is expected to miss a second consecutive game Thursday with what the team is calling a lower-body injury. He is listed as day to day.

But they can’t get a country star for every game. 

Now the kids were realizing why all the fuss, as their eyes widened and they crowded around Weber and Bonino.
