Nashville PredatorsNashville, TN – The Nashville Predators continue to struggle finding the back of the net, falling behind early, then chasing the game and unable to hold off the Winnipeg Jets, 2-1.

The Predators have been falling behind early in their last series of games and just haven’t been able to rally back for a win.  The effort has been there, but the goal tending against them has been superior.  Tonight it was Connor Hellebuyck for Winnipeg that held off the Predators.

Nashville Predators embarrassed at home by Winnipeg Jets 6-2

 

Nashville PredatorsNashville, Tn — The Nashville Predators will have to go back to Winnipeg and win a road game to stay alive in the Stanley Cup Playoffs after being schooled at home by the Jets tonight, 6-2.

While the hockey “experts” continue to second guess head coach Peter Laviolette’s strategy for game five tonight, Winnipeg put on a clinic on how to attack the net and keep the pressure on Predators’ goalie, Pekka RInne.  Rinne was pulled in the third period.

Winnipeg got on the board first when Paul Stastny scored at 7:44 of the second period after a Patrik Laine shot was blocked by Rinne but the rebound fell at the feet of Stastny who scored, giving the Jets the early 1-0 lead.
