The 2005–06 Nashville Predators season was the eighth season of the Nashville Predators in the National Hockey League. The Predators qualified for the Stanley Cup playoffs for the second consecutive season.

Regular season[edit]

The Predators were the last team to record their first regulation loss of the regular season. They opened the season with an 8–0–1 stretch before losing at home to the Edmonton Oilers on October 29, 2005, 5–1.

In response, Mason said, "It was a cheesy goal. Someone else should have received it." [4]
