Nashville Predators fall to Colorado Avalanche 5-0

 

Nashville PredatorsNashville, TN – A disappointing day in Smashville today as the visiting Colorado Avalanche muscled their way through the Nashville Predators, 5-0.

This is the final regular season meeting between the two teams, and the Predators were just outmatched from start to finish.

It wasn’t that the Predators didn’t have plenty of opportunity with 38 shots on goal, it’s just that they couldn’t get the puck in the net.  Philipp Grubauer stood tall in net for the Avs, who beat the Chicago Blackhawks last night.

UT Athletics

Tennessee Volunteers - UT VolsBaton Rouge, LA – The No. 5 Tennessee Vols suffered an overtime loss on the road Saturday against No. 13 LSU at Pete Maravich Assembly Center, 82-80.
 
A shot with 0.6 seconds left just missed and handed the Vols (24-3, 12-2 SEC) their second straight loss on the road. The Tigers (22-5, 12-2 SEC) were fueled by a raucous, sold-out crowd and the absence of SEC Player of the Year candidate Tremont Waters, who was out due to illness.
 
Javonte Smart stepped up big for LSU, dropping a career-high 29 points to go along with five rebounds, five assists and three steals. Skylar Mays chipped in 23 points as well.
