Nashville Predators Check-In: Pekka Rinne Wins Goal of the Year.

Guess what Nashville Predators fans? It appears that we are going to be seeing some hockey in the next couple of months.

Many look to social media to fill that hole that’s missing in their current sports lives.

While we are counting down the days until the playoffs, we’re checking in on some of our favorite Nashville Predators players and the team to see what they have been up to this week.

There’s always a lot to see on the Predators’ social media sites. We are fortunate that the Predators have such a  great social media team and players who are willing to connect with their fans.

Until we get back to some sense of normalcy in the sports world, we’ll be following the team and players closely to see how they’re passing the time and staying ready to go when the season continues.

In this week’s check-in with the Nashville Predators, we’re taking a look at some fun things that happened from the team.

Goal Of The Year Winner

On Monday, the NHL announced the winners of the Fan Choice Awards. Our very own Pekka Rinne won Goal Of The Year. No surprise there.

Rinne scored a very rare goaltender goal this season against the Chicago Blackhawks. Way to go, Pekka!

Coach John Hynes

Coach Hynes joined 102.5 The Game for a radio interview with “Jared and the GM.” He sounds like he is excited and ready to go when and if the playoffs start.

Hynes touched on several subjects, but the most important ones were goaltending and special teams.

He also mentioned being excited about having a training camp to fine-tune the things that the Predators were working on before the season pause.

We are all excited to start getting some news from the Predators.

Time Stands Still

Since the NHL announced that training camps might begin on July 10th, we have done nothing but stare at the calendar and count down the moments. Guess what? The team feels the same way.

We are hopeful that nothing happens that would throw off the schedule set forth by the NHL. We can’t wait for the playoffs.

First Goal – Colton Sissons

It must be a fantastic feeling to get that first NHL goal. In this short clip, Colton Sissons speaks with Terry Crisp about his first-ever NHL goal.
