More About Nashville Predators Third Jerseys
Hockey in Nashville. Not exactly a match made in Heaven, one wouldn’t think. However, back in 1998-99 the NHL made the bold move of expanding to this non-traditional hockey market, and it has been an experiment, that barring some financial hiccups, has managed to work so far.
The Predators got off to a slow start, as most expansion teams do, finishing 2nd last in the Western Conference in their inaugural season. For the next several seasons they would go through the usual growing pains, until finally squeaking into the playoffs in the 2003-04 season, where they would succumb in 6 games to the powerful Detroit Red Wings.
Nashville built upon that brief but inspiring playoff run in the season following the NHL lockout. In the 2005-06 season they came storming out of the gate, going 8-0-0 to start the year. They would finish with a franchise record 106 points. However, despite their fine season they failed to get past the first round of the playoffs.
2006-07 was even better. Anchored by a bevy of talented stars like Jason Arnott, David Legwand, Paul Kariya, Steve Sullivan, Peter Forsberg and Shea Weber, and getting a combined 10 shutouts from goaltenders Thomas Vokoun and Chris Mason, the club improved upon their previous season, setting a new franchise record with 110 points – the third highest total in the league. Once again they failed to live up to expectations come playoff time, bowing out to the San Jose Sharks for the second straight year.
Today’s Nashville Predators aren’t among the Stanley Cup contenders. However, with a strong defensive foundation they are in most games, and should contend for a playoff spot this spring.
