Predators Sign Trio of Defensemen to Contract Extensions

Predators Sign Trio of Defensemen to Contract Extensions

Viktor Arvidsson and the Nashville Predators cruised into their bye week with another win against the Edmonton Oilers.

Tuesday night, Watson and the Predators (24-11-6) will try to enter their mandatory five-day break on a good note when they welcome the Edmonton Oilers to Bridgestone Arena for the start of a four-week stretch where they will enjoy the comforts of home cooking. "I think the fans want to see offence and if that's going to hold back from offence it's obviously frustrating".

"It's something I hope they take out", McDavid calmly said of this particular offsides rule.

"Lawrence, that guy he must have a surgeon's eyes", Rinne said.

Oilers coach Todd McLellan chose not to say too much about the call that likely cost his desperate team at least one point Wednesday. However, the rule has gone from snuffing out egregious offside calls to having linesmen count pixels between skate blades and the ice on tablet screens. Nashville challenged the goal and a video review determined that the play was offside.

The two main concerns of GMs were (a) that determining whether or not a player's skate was onside or offside would still be a grey area whether a skate was contacting the ice or in the air and (b) that it could become a safety issue if players began intentionally lifting their skates off the ice in an attempt to stay onside. The 27-year-old has already played 22 games for Nashville this season, approaching his season, approaching his single-season career-high set in 2016-17, and is averaging a personal-best of 13 minutes and 43 seconds of ice time. Roman Josi ripped a slapper from the left point that caromed off Talbot, then stuck Oilers defenseman Adam Larsson in the face and plopped down at the goalmouth.

Rinne denied McDavid on a breakaway with 2:14 remaining in the first.

McDavid then got a measure of revenge 55 seconds into the second.

The Nashville Predators have fortified their defense for the foreseeable future.

NOTES: The Predators are 20-2-2 when leading after two periods this season.
