The Preds have had a nice run in Canada so far. Beating Vancouver 7-1 on Wednesday and a shutout in Edmonton last night (Thursday) 4-0! Juuse Saros made a 46-save victory. NHL.com says,
After a first period that saw Saros make 24 saves, the Predators responded with a vengeance, potting four goals in the second period and then clamping it down the rest of the way in an effort that wasn’t their best – but the result looks just fine.
Nashville has now won their last two outings on the second half of back-to-backs by a combined score of 11-2, taking advantage of their opportunities when they come and relying on Saros to shut it down between the pipes. It’s a formula that seems to be doing the job as of late, and while the Preds would prefer to play a bit better in front of their goaltender, they still claimed two points.
Let’s keep this winning streak going!! The Preds play Calgary Saturday night. Puck drops at 9:00 CST. GO PREDS!!
