Nashville Predators fall to the Carolina Hurricanes 5-3

 

Nashville PredatorsNashville, Tn — The Nashville Predators just can’t seem to find a way to fight their way through the hurricane. The Carolina Hurricanes.  They’ve now lost 10 of 13 meetings against the team, losing at home tonight, 5-3.

With some momentum coming from back to back wins against the Minnesota Wild, the Predators had confidence heading into tonight’s contest, but the news that Filip Forsberg would not be in the line-up may have deflated that confidence.

Forsberg is listed day to day with an upper body issue and the timeline for his return has not been determined.

Let me see if I can reconstruct this.  He appeared on the deck scrawny and in need.  He finally got sympathy that was mobilized into action in the form of daily rations.hello
