Heading into the final game of the trip, the Preds wanted to finish things off with a win. Facing the Oilers Monday night, Nashville spent most of the first 40 minutes lagging behind. Left-winger James Neal came through near the end of the second period to tie things up with his second goal on the night.

The Kings will be in town on Monday (March 21) and tickets for the game are on sale now for $32.

After falling behind by two, Ryan Johansen and Calle Jarnkrok scored to tie it. It wasn't long before they were behind by two again.

1/14/16 - Many hockey fans will know the name Joe Mullen, NHL Hall of Famer, but it’s his son, Patrick Mullen, who is getting the attention of the Nashville Predators lately. The team recently made the announcement that they have acquired the defenseman from Ottawa. Mullen has played seven seasons as a professional, suiting up for 338 AHL games and has amassed 148 points.

1/7/16 - The trade of the NHL season—at least so far—has gone down and it has Nashville Predators defensive ace Seth Jones headed to Columbus in exchange for star center Ryan Johansen. The trade comes on the heels of a contract dispute between Johansen and the Blue Jackets, but for the center’s money, he’s more than ready to move on. In fact, the 23-year-old stated that he expects to be in the Preds’ lineup as early as this Friday night.

12/30/15 - It looks like the Nashville Predators made the most of their series of home games. They were able to come away with three victories out of four matches. Most recently, the Predators took on the New York Rangers, and finished with a final score of 3-5. It was a close matchup, but the Predator’s final period saw them score three times. From here, they will be having seven away games, only returning for a single home match on January 5th to take on the Winnipeg Jets.

12/21/15 - The Nashville Predators have got to feel relieved; they have snapped the three-game slump and got a big win over the Minnesota Wild Saturday night. Filip Forsberg played a key role, earning the team their first goal of the night just 46 seconds in and giving Nashville a lead that they never gave up. The team went up 3-0 with Mike Ribeiro’s goal later on in the first period and James Neal’s wrist shot in the second. Minnesota rallied to score two of their own, but the Preds held on for the eventual 3-2 win. They will be up next against the Canadiens at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee. Get tickets for Monday’s (Dec. 21) game from us today for $31.
12/16/15 - Just when it looks like the Nashville Predators should finally be able to get some steam going, they go and lose to the Colorado Avalanche at home. Worse, the Predators were unable to mount a strong enough comeback, ultimately blowing the game 2 – 3. Nashville did manage to score a goal in the third period, but it simply wasn’t enough to overtake the Avalanche. They will now embark on a brief road trip to play the St. Louis Blues before coming home to play the Minnesota Wild on Saturday, December 19. Tickets to this Saturday’s matchup are currently available for purchase and can be found for prices as low as $26.
12/9/15 - The Nashville Predators came away with an impressive win on the road in Boston this week. They beat the Bruins 3-2, a victory that was badly needed. After the first two periods the score was tied, but the Preds pulled ahead in the third. Offensive maneuvers really came together and that led to the winning goal from Viktor Arvidsson. Other key players in the game include Carter Hutton, who made some key saves and kept his cool despite high-stress situations. Nashville will play the next three at home and we have tickets for sale now. Get your seats for Saturday, Dec. 12 when the Predators host the Colorado Avalanche. Ticket prices start at $32.
12/3/15 - The Nashville Predators took home a much-needed win last night, defeating the Arizona Coyotes 5 – 2 at Bridgestone Arena. Arizona looked like they were going to run away with it first, scoring an unanswered goal in the first period and tacking on another in the second. The Predators managed to rally, however, scoring a goal of their own in the second period and a whopping four more in the third. Nashville had lost their last two previous games, so this victory could not have come at a better time. Catch the Predators in their next match against the Florida Panthers tomorrow night at home. Tickets currently start as low as $6.
11/25/15 - Even though Nashville isn’t known for hockey playing, the Nashville Predators are holding their own this season. Right now they are in fourth place in the Central Division and have an 11-6 winning record to prove it. Unfortunately, things haven’t been going their way and the Predators have slumped into a three-game losing streak. Their last loss was against the New York Rangers on November 23. With the holiday right around the corner, the Predators hit the road for a three-game road trip. Get tickets to see the Predators play live and give them the confidence they need to pull out of this losing streak. Tickets for all weekend games are still available.
11/18/15 - The Nashville Predators came away the victors when they played the Anaheim Ducks on November 17. Goalie Pekka Rinne helped the offense by making an impressive 38 saves. Two of his saves off of a breakaway goal attempt by Carl Hagelin and the rebound made a big different to the game. The Predators led for most of the game, although Anaheim was able to tie the game in the first period before a goal from James Neal brought the Predators ahead again. Shea Weber and Miikka Salomaki also scored for the Predators. The Predators head to Columbus to play the Blue Jackets on November 20, and you can still get tickets for the game. Prices start at $24.
11/11/15 - For the second time in three games, the Nashville Predators have earned an unreal seven points in a single game. Moreover, this is the second time in four games that they have shut out their competition, which is even more unbelievable in tandem with the incredibly high score. When the Predators hosted the Winnipeg Jets on November 14th, fans knew they were on their game when they scored four times in the first 15 minutes. This incredible run has made a few great strides for the Predators in the rankings. They are now 3rd in the Central Division with a season record of 10-3-3. If they keep this up, however, they will be leading the division in no time.
11/5/15 - This week, the assistant head coach of the Nashville Predators will be joining the Hockey Hall of Fame, an honor which many feel is overdue. Phil Housley joined the NHL back in 1982, when he was just 18 years old. He was one of the best players to ever hit the ice at such a young age and had one of the longest careers in the league. In his time with the Preds, he has helped shape his young team into the competitors that they are, and has done so without much accolade or attention. Come see his team in action, as Nashville is scheduled to host the Blues this Saturday, Nov. 7, at Bridgestone Arena. Tickets are available for $56 and up.
10/28/15 - The Nashville Predators may have been knocked out in the first round of last season’s playoffs, but they are back at it again this year. They are currently the No. 1 team in the Central Division, and are looking to take that ranking all the way to the Stanley Cup finals. They are relying on the likes of goaltender Pekka Rinne, who was out much of last season due to injury. He has been a true leader for the Preds, who know him for being humble but also fiercely competitive. Nashville will play their next few on the road, including a Halloween (Oct. 31) game versus the Los Angeles Kings.
10/21/15 - Bridgestone Arena was loud Tuesday night as the Nashville Predators overtook the Lightning 5-4. Filip Forsberg scored the winning goal during yet another shootout victory. James Neal scored two goals in the second and third periods to force the tied score and the shootout that gave his team the victory. The Predators did a great job of holding their own against a team that made it to the finals last season. Nashville will play their next two games at home. They will welcome the Anaheim Ducks this Thursday, Oct. 22. Tickets are available now and start at just $26. On Saturday, Oct. 24, they will host the Penguins. Seats for that match can be yours for $34.!
10/12/15 - Winter may be rapidly approaching, but things are just starting to heat up in Tennessee! The Nashville Predators added another win to their record this weekend by defeating the Edmonton Oilers 2 – 0 at home. Although the first period of the game was an all out defensive battle, the Predators managed to score single goals in both the second and third periods while shutting out their opponents. The Predators are now in first place in the central division as they head into a three-game road trip. Their next home game is Tuesday, October 20 against the Tampa Bay Lightning. Tickets currently start at as little as $5. Don’t miss it!
10/7/15 - The Nashville Predators beat the Carolina Hurricanes in their season opener on October 8, thanks to two early goals. Craig Smith scored during a power play in the second minute of play, and Viktor Arvidsson added another point in the seventeenth minute, which marked the rookie's first goal in the NHL. The Hurricanes worked to get one goal in late in the third period, but the Predators were able to maintain the lead and take the victory. Despite the win, the Predators felt they could have played better in the second and third period and will work on that before their next game against the Oilers on October 10. Tickets still are available for this game and the rest of the season. Prices start at just $7.
9/16/15 - It’s been a busy offseason for many NHL teams, and the Nashville Predators are no exception. In addition to scouting and keeping players in shape, the team participated in a tournament recently along with other teams such as the Panthers and the Lightning. Overall, the Predators fared well in the series, coming out with a record of 2-1-0. The skills of players such as Juuse Saros, Viktor Arvidsson and Kevin Fiala were especially prominent throughout the tournament. They, along with the rest of the team, will have the opportunity to showcase their talent on the ice on Sunday, Sept. 20, as they kick off the preseason against the Panthers. The game will take place at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville and is set to begin at 3:30 PM.
4/20/15 - In order to even up their first round playoff series, the Nashville Predators will have to take a game in enemy territory. After giving up Game One on their home ice, the Predators find themselves in a 2-1 hole versus the Chicago Blackhawks. Opposing goaltender Scott Darling was too much for Nashville in Game Three, blocking 35 of 37 shots in a stifling performance—and his first playoff experience, no less. The Predators will look to Craig Smith and their offense to get the job done in Game Four. Smith scored a pair of goals in the second contest to lift Nashville to victory, and he’ll need to produce more of the same for his team to have a chance moving forward. Tickets are available for the United Center on Tuesday night, but they’re going fast!
4/14/15 - After standing atop the Central Division for much of the regular season, the Nashville Predators ultimately finished the year in second place, five points behind the resurgent St. Louis Blues. Their record was still more than enough to earn them home ice advantage in the first round, however, where they will face off with the Chicago Blackhawks. The ‘Hawks won the season series 3-1 including an overtime win and a victory via shootout, although each team resets to zero in the postseason. The Predators will look to center Filip Forsberg to buoy their offense as they do their best to work on Chicago goaltenders Corey Crawford and Scott Darling. Tickets are on sale now for the Stanley Cup Playoffs! Come out to Bridgestone Arena as Nashville begins their hunt for the trophy!
4/9/15 - While the Nashville Predators won’t claim the Presidents’ Trophy this season, after being in contention for most of the season (the N.Y. Rangers have that title sewn up), a division title is not out of the question. The Preds are just a point behind St. Louis with two games to play to round out the regular season.
4/2/15 - As one of the two division leaders in the Western Conference, the Nashville Predators are set to take on one of the two wild-card squads in the conference; which if the current standings remain unchanged, will be divisional rival Minnesota, who is No. 4 in the division and No. 5 in the conference.
3/26/15 - It’s still anyone’s guess who might earn the NHL’s Presidents’ Trophy, given to the team with the most points earned during the regular season. But along with Eastern Conference squads Montreal, the N.Y. Rangers, and Tampa Bay; and right alongside Western squads from Anaheim and divisional rival St. Louis, are the Nashville Predators.
3/17/15 - After not losing more than two games consecutively all season, the Nashville Predators ran into a six-game skid bridging February and March, loosening their hold on first place in the NHL. Recent victories over the Arizona Coyotes and Los Angeles Kings have raised them back into a deadlock with the St. Louis Blues for tops in the Central Division, but the Predators will need to close out the regular season on a strong run if they hope to secure home ice advantage throughout the early rounds of the playoffs. On Tuesday, Nashville will host the Minnesota Wild—a team which is currently trying to secure its own hold on the top wild card position in the West. A handful of seats are still available at Bridgestone Arena starting at $23, but they’ll be gone soon so don’t delay!
3/5/15 - After a few weeks at the top of the overall league standings in the race for the Presidents’ Cup, which is given to the team with the most points earned for the season, the Nashville Predators have fallen back into second place in the Western Conference race, while still leading the Central Division over St. Louis, albeit by a mere four points.
2/26/15 - The Nashville Predators have continued to play strongly, extending their command of the league and the race for the Presidents’ Trophy. The Preds currently have a two game winning streak in progress, and their 89 points put them six points clear of Western rival Anaheim as well as Montreal, the top team in the East.
2/20/15 - The Nashville Predators, currently tops in the Presidents’ Trophy points chase, had their six game winning streak broken on Thursday. The Preds, who hadn’t fallen in a game since February 5, lost to the Metropolitan leading New York Islanders, 5-2.
2/12/15 - Star goaltender Pekka Rinne is back, and the Nashville Predators have moved out in front of conference foe Anaheim by three points in the race for the Presidents’ Trophy. The Preds are playing superb hockey, having won their last three in a row and five of six in the month of February.
2/5/15 - Even without the services of Pekka Rinne, the Nashville Predators continue to meet the challenge. The Preds are riding a two game winning streak, are two points ahead of St. Louis for the Central Division lead, and even with Anaheim in the race for the Presidents’ Trophy.
1/29/15 - Leading the way in the Central Division, the Nashville Predators kicked off the second half of the season in style with a win. Despite losing Pekka Rinne, one of the top netminders in the league, to injury, the Preds are just three points behind Anaheim in the race for the Presidents’ Trophy.
1/15/15 - Winners of their last four, the Nashville Predators have put a little space between themselves and the rest of the pack in the Central Division. Despite losing lead goaltender Pekka Rinne to a knee injury for the next few weeks, the Preds are four points in front of second-place Chicago.
1/8/15 - They had stalled out for a while, but the Nashville Predators seem to be back in the proper gear and moving forward. The Preds are getting very strong goaltending from their corps of netminders; as a group they’re second in the league allowing just 2.2 goals per game.
12/18/14 - At one point earlier this season, the Nashville Predators were flying high atop the Central Division. However in recent weeks, the Preds have fallen back a bit despite winning seven of their last 10 games, and now find themselves trailing both St. Louis and Chicago.
12/11/14 - It’s taken a super hot streak by Chicago to knock the Nashville Predators off the top of the Central Division pile. However, the Preds continue to keep step in second place, just a point back of the Blackhawks, and tied with St. Louis.
12/4/14 - The Nashville Predators are now in a three-way fight for control of the Central Division with St. Louis (tied) and Chicago (one point back) as December kicks off. The Preds squared off with the Blues, who were welcoming Martin Brodeur back to the league, on Thursday, and will host the Blackhawks this weekend.
11/20/14 - How ‘bout those Preds? The Nashville Predators are establishing themselves as one of this season’s elite teams; their 26 points are fourth-most in the NHL at this point in the season, and a point clear of second-place St. Louis in their Central Division.
11/13/14 - While the Nashville Predators are toward the bottom in goals scored per game – a 2.5 average, good for 24th out of the 30 teams) – the defense is giving the Preds a chance. The Predators are third in the NHL overall, averaging just 1.9 goals allowed per game, and goaltender Pekka Rinne is a key to that effort, with a goals-against average of 1.83.
11/6/14 - They’re in second place, but the Nashville Predators are also in the very competitive Central Division, which means a short losing string could see them fall from their lofty position. As it is, a key defenseman, Anton Volchenkov, has been suspended four games for an illegal check to the head in a previous game.
10/29/14 - The Predators will be playing several away games against the Flames, the Canucks, Jets, Stars, and Blues before returning home for a game against the Edmonton Oilers. This time away from home could effectively widen the gap between league leaders which can only increase team and fan morale. Once the Nashville Predators do return to defend their own ice as they face off with the Oilers, fans are sure to be ready for yet another victory to add to their already successful season. As the Predators spend the next few games away from home, many fans will be preparing to offer them a warm welcome on November 11th. Tickets for the Oilers vs Predators game are still available, and starting at just $4 with many seating areas still open for selection.
The Nashville Predators and their burgeoning fan base enter the 2014-2015 season brimming with optimism—and we you can’t blame them! The puzzle pieces have finally lined up, and new head coach Peter Laviolette leads this playoff-caliber squad. Nashville made a big offseason splash with the acquisition of big scorer James Neal from Pittsburgh, and is expected to fire-up the team's high-scoring offense and jet-pack play. The return of elite goaltender Pekka Rinne will be one to watch, as the crease minder will make another run at the Vezina Trophy. For the first time in club history, the Predators will not have Barry Trotz as bench boss, but Laviolette is a Stanley Cup-winning coach. The Bridgestone Arena Squad missed playoffs by a mere three points in the ultra-competitive Western Conference last year; score Nashville Predators tickets and see them earn a berth this season!
4/9/14 – Nashville was eliminated from the playoff following Tuesday’s 3-2 shootout loss to Dallas, in rookie Seth Jones’ return home. The Predators (35-32-12) got two goals from center Gabriel Bourque, but it wasn’t enough; Nashville will miss the postseason for a second straight year. Shootouts have been the Predators’ nemesis this year, losing 9 of 11 in their 2013-14 campaign. Nashville Predators tickets are fairly cheap for the last two games to be played at Bridgestone Arena this year – prices for Thursday’s game against Phoenix range from $21-$103 and $85-$344 for Saturday’s game against the defending Stanley Cup Champions.
4/3/14 – Following five days off, the Predators will pick up action in Anaheim for their final game against Stanley Cup winner and six-time Olympian Teemu Selanne on Friday. Nashville is 4-1-1 in their last six in which they averaged 4.3 goals per contest. Can the Preds keep up the high-scoring effort in their last six games of the season? You’ll have just two chances to see the team when they return from their three game road trip – 4/10 vs Phoenix (min. $11) and 4/12 vs. Chicago (min. $99).
3/28/14 – The Preds ended their six game home losing streak with a 6-1 beating over the Buffalo Sabres Thursday night. It was a special evening at Bridgestone Arena as both Colton Sissons and Calle Jarnkrok notched their first career NHL goals and Shea Weber scored a pair to reach the 20-goal mark for the second time in his career. The victory was Nashville’s fifth time this season scoring four or more goals in a game and should bode well for their confidence as they visit rival Dallas tonight. Seth Jones, Patrick Eaves, and Pail Gaustad are expected to be out still with injuries.
3/19/14 – The Predators look to get back on track following two straight losses to Edmonton and St. Louis. Prior to Saturday’s game against the Blues, the Preds had won three straight and remained optimistic about their NHL Playoff chances. Instead, Nashville drew its fifth straight loss on home ice and followed it up with a 1-5 road loss to the Oilers. Key points are up for grabs in Vancouver Wednesday night when the Preds visit Vancouver to face the Canucks; both teams are on the outside looking in as far as the postseason picture is concerned.
3/11/14 – Just minutes before the NHL trade deadline passed, the Nashville Predators acquired forwards Calle Jarnkrok and Patrick Eaves, in addition to a conditional third-round selection in the 2014 Entry Draft for Center David Legwand. The “Original Predator” was traded to his hometown Detroit Red Wings. Now the Predators are eight points out of the eighth and final playoff spot in the Western Conference with 17 games remaining. Nashville squeaked by the Ottawa Senators in overtime last night to grab their first win in five games. Three goals in the second-period got the Predators off to a 3-0 lead before Ottawa came back with three of their own in the third-period. Defenseman Seth Jones scored with 1:11 left in the overtime session to give the Nashville Predators the 4-3 OT victory. The Predators have just one game in the next week and a half at Bridgestone Arena and that’ll be played Saturday vs. St. Louis. It is the most expensive game remaining in Nashville this season, averaging $108.
3/4/14 – Good news Predators fans! Pekka Rinne is expected to start in the net tonight against Pittsburgh and the Tuesday evening meeting is the cheapest game (avg. $48) remaining at Bridgestone Arena this season. Rinne has not been in the net for the Predators since Oct. 22 when he was sidelined after a surgery on his hip to take care of an E.Coli infection. You can catch his return for just $11 in the third of five straight home games for Nashville.
2/25/14 - Four Nashville Predators will get back to work following their trip to Sochi. Simon Moser & Roman Josi (Switzerland), Shea Weber (Canada) and manager Pete Rogers (USA) will be back in Music City when the Preds square off against the Tampa Bay Lightning this Thursday (tickets start at $13). Nashville will have to take advantage of a precious five-game homestand after the Olympic break, which most teams will not enjoy. Over the hiatus, general manager David Poile underwent surgery after being struck in the face by an errant puck that broke his nose and has left him blind in his right eye. Though the harrowing injury prevented Poile from participating in the Olympics as manager for Team USA, the coach is already back in the office and back to work. Get Nashville Predators tickets now and be there to welcome back their tough-as-nails GM and returning Olympians!
2/21/14 – Goaltender Pekka Rinne’s (hip) return appears to be on the near horizon. Rinne participated in his second practice with the team since having surgery in October and felt no soreness. Nashville’s forward Craig Smith will look to continue his scoring ways when the team returns to league play Feb 27 at Bridgestone Arena. The 24-year old has 36 points on 18 goals, and 18 assists and is looking to becoming the first Predator since Patric Horngvist in 2009-10 to net 30 goals. Nashville Predators tickets are available for just $10 for next Thursday’s return; just four points behind 8th place Dallas, the Preds are still in the hunt for a playoff spot!
2/3/14 – What upper-body injury? Shea Weber scored twice Friday night against the Devils, including the game winner with 1:29 left in OT to give the defenseman 25 points in his past 25 games. But Saturday, the Preds dropped their final game at Scottrade Center this season, falling to St. Louis 4-3 in a shootout. The Preds will look to bounce back Thursday on the road against a team that shut them out 0-4 in their last meeting, Minnesota Wild. Then, they’ll turn their attention to NHL’s best, when Anaheim visits Bridgestone Arena (2/8); Anaheim Ducks vs Nashville Predators tickets range from $25 (upper level-goal) - $207 (lower level-baseline, first row).
1/30/14 – The Preds return home Friday night to take on the New Jersey Devils after being on the road for three straight. Experienced defenseman and Predators captain Shea Weber is day-to-day with an upper body injury. Nashville has four games left before the Olympic break and the Predators hope to have their leader and second-leading scorer back soon. With 56 points, the Preds are seven points behind for the second wild card spot in the West. With one of the cheaper tickets in the league (avg. $76), Predators fans need to turn up at Bridgestone Arena and support their team on the road to the NHL playoffs!
After losing Ryan Suter in free agency last season and failing to make the NHL Playoffs, the Preds roster needed an upgrade. Nashville selected ten prospects in the 2013 draft including the No. 4 overall pick in Seth Jones. Jones will contribute to the Preds strong defense under the League’s best defenseman Shea Weber. The organization also signed Matt Cullen and Viktor Stalberg in addition to Matt Hendricks and Eric Nystrom this offseason.
Like the St. Louis Blues, the Nashville Predators won’t be selling single-game tickets to the three games against the Chicago Blackhawks being played at Bridgestone Arena. To avoid purchasing tickets to multiple games to see the Predators play the Blackhawks, consider buying from the secondary market where single-game Nashville Predators vs. Chicago Blackhawks tickets are being sold. All three matchups against the defending Stanley Cup Champions are in high demand; the games on 11/16 and 4/12 are the two most expensive games this season on the Predators home schedule, averaging $194 and $179 respectively. The 12/17 game is averaging $113, just $10 more than the average price of Nashville Predators tickets this season. Hockey tickets in Nashville are up 45% since last year, but the Predators still rank seventh cheapest in the NHL.
The revamped Central Division now has the Nashville Predators seeing more of the Colorado Avalanche, Dallas Stars, Minnesota Wild, and Winnipeg Jets and less of the Detroit Red Wings and Columbus Blue Jackets who not only jumped Divisions but also Conferences.
