Nashville Predators in a free fall with loss to the Boston Bruins 6-2

 

Nashville PredatorsNashville, TN – In their first game under new head coach John Hynes, the Nashville Predators fell hard to the visiting Boston Bruins, 6-2. 

It’s been a whirlwind of activity over the last 48 hours with the dismissal of Peter Laviolette and the hiring of Hynes, hoping to spark a Nashville team that has now lost four of their last five games.

Boston picks up their first win in four games with the victory.

The Bruins were all over the Predators from the start.  Brad Marchand and Viktor Arvidsson were sent to the box just 14 seconds into the game when Marchand cross-checked Arvidsson, who was then called for embellishment.
