Nashville, TN – The Nashville Predators’ team identity is its strong defensive play. With Vezina finalist Pekka Rinne in net and All-Star defensemen Ryan Suter and Shea Weber anchoring the d-corps, along with a bevy of solid two-way forwards, the Predators were built to grind out low-scoring tight checking games.

Nashville also used that system to perfection in dispatching the Detroit Red Wings in Round 1 of the playoffs, limiting the Wings offense to just nine goals in five games to claim the series four games to one.
