Nashville and Vancouver – Much More of a Rivalry than you Think


-----

When you think of rivalries that include the Nashville Predators, the Vancouver Canucks may not be one of the first teams to come to mind. Now, I did some research (surprise, surprise!) and check out these stats:

ALL TIME VS THE VANCOUVER CANUCKS

All Time Record: 15-24-2-4

At Home vs Vancouver: 8-9-1-4 (4-5-2 post lockout)

Away vs Vancouver: 7-15-1-0 (5-5-0 post lockout)

For whatever reason, Vancouver has always had the upper hand on us. Here’s some more crazy numbers:

15 of 35 all-time games decided by 1 goal

Neither team has swept the season series, although there have been close calls (98/99 & 05/06 for the Preds, while 1999-2004 & 2007-2009 for the Canucks)

However, it’s not just the numbers that make this series; it’s the speed of the play, it’s the hits (dirty or not), it’s the goaltender duels, and there is a lot of smack talk from fans of both sides. However, the one play that sticks in Predators fans minds which makes them dislike this team almost as much as the Wings/Sharks is this:

And to actually see it…

Now, there is a lot of speculation that this is the one moment that started JP’s decline with the Predators. However, mentally, we’ll never be sure what the case is with JP.

Regardless, this series has always been CLOSE in terms of the score of the game, but other than that the Canucks have completely dominated this team.

What I love most about this series, though, is that it’s CLASSIC hockey. They’re close games, exciting, and never dull in terms of action on either end of the ice. The only bad thing is we seem to be on the losing end more often than not.

The Predators will try to see if they can even up their all time home series against the Canucks tomorrow at the Bridgestone Arena.
