Nashville Has Finally Found Way To Silence Blackhawks Fans During National Anthem, Sort Of

It only took the Nashville Predators three seasons to answer the question that every person on the planet with half a brain would have figured out in 30 seconds. “How do we deter Blackhawks fans from cheering during the National Anthem?” they asked.

Is Pekka Rinne the Best Goalie in the NHL Playoffs?

View image | gettyimages.com The NHL playoffs begin this week.  I figured it’d be a good idea for TopSportsReport to have rankings to help fans understand the playoffs better, make their predictions better, and also, simply increase discussion surrounding this year’s playoffs.

Fizzling Into the Playoffs

The Nashville Predators are hoping that their next few weeks will erase most of the memory of these past two. They have not played well heading into the NHL post-season and in fact have lost 6 in a row. The good news is that the regular season is really about qualifying for the post one.
