Predators GM David Poile says he's not interested in trading any of his top four defensemen.
There have been rumors about Nashville going after Colorado's Matt Duchene, but it sounds like the price is a little too high for Poile. "We will not be touching our defense in the near future here," said Poile. The four defensemen in question are P.K. Subban, Mattias Ekholm, Roman Josi and Ryan Ellis. All four of those players were key parts of Nashville's run to the Stanley Cup Final, so it's no surprising to hear that they're unavailable. Jun 24 - 3:42 PM

P.K. Subban was not out with his teammates for the optional skate on Saturday.

It's unknown if Subban is dealing with an injury but he was able to suit up for Game 5 despite not practicing the day before the game either. He should be a full go ahead of Game 6 tomorrow.

P.K. Subban didn't take part in Wednesday's practice.

Subban returned to Monday's game after he blocked a shot and has regularly sat out skates, so he could still be fine. He earned an assist in 25:09 of ice time in Game 4 against Pittsburgh.
Jun 7 - 2:46 PM

P.K. Subban registered an assist in Monday's 4-1 win against Pittsburgh.

He was slow to get up in the third period after a blocked shot, but returned to the game after a brief exit to the locker room. Subban has collected 12 points, including 10 helpers, in 20 playoff matches.
Jun 6 - 9:12 AM

P.K. Subban said on Sunday that the Predators need to "realize that this game tomorrow is the biggest game of our careers."

You often here the phrase "the most important game of the season" to the point where it loses some meaning, but Subban's statement might be accurate. Granted, every game in the Stanley Cup Final is big and the deeper we get in, the higher the stakes are, but it's still fair to say that Game 4 Monday night is critical. If the Predators win then they'll regain equal footing with the Penguins, but if they lose then they'll be up against the ropes going back to Pittsburgh for Game 5. That would be a potentially crushing position for the Predators to be in, especially after their inability to take a game in Pittsburgh earlier in the series.

Sidney Crosby said that he didn't tell P.K. Subban that the Predators defenseman has bad breath, contrary to Subban's claims.

Subban told reporters that Crosby's trash talking during Game 3 included comments about his breath. "Yeah, he made that up," Crosby said Sunday afternoon. "I didn’t say that." Crosby went on to say that Subban likes the attention. For what it's worth, Subban also called Crosby "the world’s best player." The two will face each other again in Game 4 on Monday.

Sidney Crosby was telling P.K. Subban that he has bad breath while trash talking on the ice Saturday.

"Usually when guys chirp after a game or during a game, it’s usually about your game or something personal," Subban told reporters after the game. "But he went on to tell me that my breath smelled bad. I really don’t understand why, because I used Listerine before the game. I thought my breath smelled great. At the end of the day, we’re just gonna take the win and move on." We are not sure if this will help or hinder Listerine sales in Nashville and/or Pittsburgh in the coming days.
Jun 4 - 10:02 AM

P.K. Subban has all-but promised that the Nashville Predators will win Game 3.

The Predators are down 2-0 in the Stanley Cup Final, but now the series is going back to Nashville. "We don't lose in our building," Subban said following the Predators' Game 2 loss. "So we're going back home, we're going to win the next game and then we'll see what happens from there." Subban wasn't backing down from that statement on Thursday, saying that he feels even more confident in it now and that "there's no question" the Predators will take Game 3.

P.K. Subban had an assist in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final to give him 11 points in 17 playoff contests.

Subban also had a goal taken away after a successful coach's challenge by Pittsburgh determined that the play was offside. "I watched the replay just on the Jumbotron. I thought for sure it was going to be a good goal," he said. "I didn't get the explanation. I'm not really sure. But we're sadly mistaken if we don't think that changes or rules that are brought into the game aren't there to help the game be better. ... Obviously we would have loved that goal to have counted, but it didn't." The Predators lost Game 1 5-3, but feel they played well. Subban liked the way the team battled back after a troubling start and he is confident that they will be ready to play Predators' hockey in Game 2 on Wednesday night.
May 31 - 10:32 AM

P.K. Subban cited the Predators' confidence as a reason for their success in the playoffs.

"It’s the feeling, you know?" Subban said. "The chemistry our team has starts with, I believe, ownership and management. I believe that’s where it starts. Based on the atmosphere you create around the work premises and work environment is how guys are going to feel when they come in to the rink. If you’re going to treat guys in a way where they’re going to love coming to the rink every day and love working hard and practicing and getting better, that’s what’s going to happen. If you don’t create that environment, it makes things a little tougher. I think the Preds have done a great, great job of creating an atmosphere that makes guys want to play there, want to be there." The Predators acquired Subban from Montreal in the summer of 2016 and he seems to have settled in nicely in his first campaign with the squad. He's been a big factor in the playoffs with a goal and eight points in 13 games while averaging 25:35 minutes per contest.
May 18 - 11:02 AM

P.K. Subban has been fined $2,000 for diving/embellishment.

His second citation came in Game 4 against St. Louis. Subban has accounted for 10 penalty minutes and seven points in 10 playoff games.
May 10 - 4:11 PM

P.K. Subban made it clear that the Nashville Predators aren't satisfied even if they've already made franchise history.

With Sunday's 3-1 win over St. Louis, the Predators are going to the Western Conference Final for the first time. "The expectation is a Stanley Cup," Subban said. "I think we took a big step today for this organization and this city, but that's not our ultimate goal. Our ultimate goal is to win the Stanley Cup. We've worked really hard to put ourselves in a good position." Subban has played a big role in getting them this far. He's scored a goal and seven points in 10 playoff games while averaging 25:24 minutes per contest. Nashville has to wait to see if it'll play against Edmonton or Anaheim in the next round, but the Predators have a good chance against either team.
May 8 - 10:03 AM

P.K. Subban picked up an assist in Friday's 2-1 loss to the St. Louis Blues.

Nashville had an opportunity to eliminate the Blues tonight, but they were unable to do so. Subban registered the primary helper on James Neal's power play goal in the second period that tied the game at one. Unfortunately for the Preds, Blues forward Jaden Schwartz scored the go-ahead goal early in the third frame. Subban finished the night with a minus-1 rating, two penalty minutes, no shots and two hits in 25:58 of ice time. He's up to one goal and six assists in nine games this postseason. Game 6 will take place in Nashville on Sunday afternoon. The Preds still lead the best-of-seven series 3-2.
May 6 - 12:38 AM

P.K. Subban scored a goal and two assists in Nashville's 4-3 win over St. Louis on Wednesday night.

Subban was a man on a mission tonight, as he really took control of this game in the first two periods. He picked up the primary assists on Colin Wilson's first-period goal before scoring one of his own (Subban's first playoff goal as a Predator) early in the second frame. He also helped set up Filip Forsberg's power play tally later on in the period. Subban finished the game with a plus-1 rating, two penalty minutes and five shots on goal in 23:16 of ice time. He now has five points in five games this postseason. Vernon Fiddler scored the game-winning goal for Nashville. The Predators lead the best-of-seven series 1-0. Game 2 will be held in St. Louis on Friday night.
