  • Predators' James Neal: Notches two points in overtime thriller

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/6/16) Neal scored the game-tying goal and added an assist in Nashville's 4-3 triple overtime win on Thursday to even up the series at 2-2.

    Neal was Nashville's best forward, finishing with a game-high 38:59 among forwards. He tallied eight shots on goal and finished with another two hits and a plus-3 rating. The feisty Predators aren't going away, and so far the San Jose defense hasn't quite figured out how to keep Neal at bay. He's counted on to provide offense every night for Peter Laviolette's squad.

    Predators' James Neal: Collects a pair of points in win Monday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/25/16) Neal had a goal and an assist in Monday's Game 6 win over the Ducks.

    Neal was credited with the game-winner for his tally in the final minutes of the second frame, and later provided the helper on an insurance goal in the dying seconds of the contest. The winger was held off the scoresheet entirely over the previous four games, but he'll likely need to be a factor if Nashville hopes to advance in Wednesday's Game 7.

    Predators' James Neal: Dominates in Game 1 Win

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/16/16) Neal came to play in Game 1 against Anaheim Friday, opening the scoring and firing nine shots on goal in a 3-2 win.

    Neal was all over the ice, also dishing out five hits in 20:43 of ice time. The Predators might have a hard time getting past the Ducks, but they are off to a strong start and could pull off an upset. Neal scored four times in the first round last season and is currently riding a seven-game point streak dating back to the regular season.

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/10/16) Neal registered a power-play assist and three hits in Saturday's 3-2 loss to the Stars.

    Neal continues to be a helper, earning an assist in his sixth straight game to close out the regular season. In that span, the 28-year-old put up a goal as well, totaling seven points. The winger has been impressive this year, scoring 31 times and registering 27 apples, while also earning a solid plus-27 rating. Neal and the Preds are as scary as they come heading into the postseason.

    Neal has tied his longest point streak of the year at five games, scoring a goal and adding five helpers in that stretch. The 28-year-old hot play continues, and the winger will also finish the regular season with the best rating of his career, sitting at plus-28 with one game remaining.

    Neal (upper body) missed practice Monday and remains day-to-day, Brooks Bratten of the Predators' official site reports.Neal has been sidelined for over a week with the issue, so day-to-day was not an accurate initial tag.

He hasn't officially been ruled out for Tuesday, but chances are that will be the case once again.
