After a fast start that put them atop the NHL standings going into this week Matt Hunwick Jersey Womens , the Nashville Predators are experiencing their first real adversity.They limped home from a five-game road trip at 2-2-1 after a 2-1 defeat Thursday night in Arizona, their third straight loss. And the Predators are facing life without two of their key players, one for an extended stretch and the other for at least two more games.The good news is that they’re back at Bridgestone Arena for eight of the next nine games, beginning Saturday night when they face the Los Angeles Kings.Article continues below ...Nashville (13-5-1) learned Thursday that it will go without left winger Viktor Arvidsson for 6 to 8 weeks after he broke his thumb Nov. 10 during a 5-4 overtime win in Dallas. Arvidsson has eight goals and five assists in 13 games, trailing only Filip Forsberg on the team in goals, and is widely recognized as the engine of the JOFA line centered by Ryan Johansen.While the Predators have enough depth to get by without Arvidsson short term, his speed and max effort can’t easily be replicated over the long haul.“He does a lot of good things and plays in a lot of situations for us, so that’s a tough blow,” Nashville coach Peter Laviolette said. “But it’s an opportunity for somebody to step up, and I think we’ve got enough guys inside of the room to cover something like this.”The Predators must also do without All-Star defenseman P.K. Subban Jeff Skinner Jersey Womens , who was placed on injured reserve Thursday with a lower-body injury. Veteran Dan Hamhuis was activated off IR to replace him before the game in Arizona and logged 18:42 of ice time in his return, recording a hit.Nashville carried play to the Coyotes most of the game, outshooting them 46-23, but lost for the fifth time in its last six visits to Gila River Arena. Its power play went 0 for 5, dropping the percentage to a league-worst 10.8 percent.“It was just one of those nights and it happens throughout the season,” captain Roman Josi said. “We just have to keep doing the same things the next game, and hopefully, it’ll go in.”Los Angeles (6-11-1) got into Nashville in the early hours of Saturday morning after winning 2-1 Friday night in a shootout at Chicago. Rookie goalie Cal Petersen made 34 saves to earn the victory in his NHL debut, while Anze Kopitar secured the decision with a shootout goal.Petersen is the fourth goalie the Kings have used in 18 games. Starter Jonathan Quick and backup Jack Campbell are both on IR with meniscus (knee) injuries, and veteran Peter Budaj has been shaky in limited action over two games.“It was a moment that I’ve thought about for a really long time John Tavares Jersey ,” Petersen said of the win. “I’m just really glad and honored it came while I was wearing a Kings uniform.”Los Angeles is 2-3-0 under interim coach Willie Desjardins, who took over after John Stevens was fired two weeks ago. Frustration over losing is no excuse for refusing to wear a silver medal around your neck, the International Ice Hockey Federation ruled Wednesday.The IIHF issued multi-game suspensions for five players and three coaches of Sweden’s national team for pocketing or tossing their silver medals into the stands during the closing ceremony of the world junior championships in January. The actions occurred immediately following Sweden’s 3-1 loss to Canada in the gold-medal game at the 10-nation tournament held in Buffalo, New York.”The players have, by their actions, shown a lack of self-control,” the IIHF said. ”Taking off the silver medals presented to the players shows not only the disrespect against the spectators and the organizers of the championship, but also the disrespect against their opponents and winners of the championship.”The Swedes violated an IIHF rule requiring players and team officials to wear medals around their necks during the closing ceremony and postgame media availabilities.Captain Lias Andersson faced the most severe discipline in being issued a four-game ban from next year’s world juniors. Upon being presented his medal, Andersson skated away and immediately tossed it over the glass to a fan.”I didn’t want it. That guy in the stands wanted it more than me,” Andersson said Authentic Jordan Eberle Jersey , noting he has another silver medal just like it back home after losing the Under-18 championship.He said it made little difference the medal was eventually returned to him.”I’m just going to have it at home in some box or something,” Andersson said.Defenseman Rasmus Dahlin, projected to be the No. 1 pick in the NHL draft in June, was suspended from playing the first two games of the Under-18 world championship next year. The ban does not apply to any other league.Forwards Axel Jonsson and Jesper Boqvist and goalie Olle Eriksson Ek were suspended from playing the first two games at the world juniors next year.Head coach Tomas Monten was issued a three-game ban from next year’s world juniors for putting the silver medal into his pocket during the ceremony. Assistants Nizze Landen and Henrik Stridh were handed two-game suspensions.”Losing a game is part of any competition and of the sport of ice hockey, and does not excuse any unfair and unsportsmanlike behavior,” the IIHF ruled. ”To be `frustrated’ by the loss of a game is not the right attitude.”The players and coaches have three weeks to appeal the rulings.
