On The Powerplay – NHL Awards Preview Edition

Next we take a look at the Nashville Predators.  Two weeks ago they were in first place in the NHL.  However, after six straight losses that is no longer the case. What is going wrong in Nashville and how do the Preds get back on track?

We follow that up with a look at the NHL’s Art Ross Trophy race.  Last Words own Tyler Shea (@LWOSTyler) wrote an article about how this year’s winner could have the lowest full-season total since 1967-68.  We discuss the numbers, and explore the possible reasons this is happening.

Finally we go around the NHL, and look at the awards race.  With Mark Giordano’s Injury, who will win the wide open Norris Race?  Who are the contenders for the Jack Adams?  Can anyone break Patrice Bergeron’s hold on the Selke trophy?  Who wins the two horse race between Aaron Ekblad and Filip Forsberg for the Calder Trophy? Has Carey Price pulled ahead of Pekka Rinne in the Vezina Trophy race?  Can he also win the Vezina?

The Answers to all this and more as the boys go On The Powerplay.
