Nashville came out ready to play in Game 4

Nashville came out ready to play in Game 4

After the mother of all collapses occurred on Tuesday, the Nashville Predators needed a strong, complete game from their team.

Adam Vingan lays out all the missteps the Nashville Predators had in the 7-4 loss to Winnipeg, and what they need to do to capture a win in Game 4.

Rinne was pulled in Game 1 of the series after giving up three goals on 16 shots. The Jets have never gotten past the second round of the playoffs. They weren't pushed around like they were by the Jets in the first three games. But before we get to game five... They had their chances, but Pekka Rinne stood talk all night. "You've got to be smart about it". According to the National Hockey League, when a best-of-seven playoff series is tied 2-2, the victor of Game 5 holds an all-time series record of 202-54 (78.9 per cent). The mental and emotional game of the Predators crumbled like 2007 Britney Spears.

Before the game, they took swings with a sledgehammer at a junked jet parked outside the arena's front door. Defenseman Yannick Weber tied it up for Nashville with a wrister from the left circle at 11:08. Winnipeg gained only 33 total shots on goal, with 28 coming during 5v5 situations. The power play actually featured some crisp passing and good movement, looking better than it has all series. Moments later the President's Trophy winning Predators flew around the ice, cheered on heartily by a crowd determined to prove itself louder than its Winnipeg counterparts, looking to grab control of this second round series. Connor's goals were magnificent, but his assist might have been his biggest highlight-reel play, as he deked a defender with a pass to himself between his legs and then set up Scheifele for an early third-period goal. Physical play was the name of the game as the Predators continually took the action to the Jets. Craig Smith raced down to mid-ice receiving the puck, then dished it to Kevin Fiala who put it past Hellbuyck to score the game victor.

Gersich stepped into the lineup for Caps forward Tom Wilson, who was suspended for three games. Additionally, Austin Watson was matched against Mark Scheifele's line all night.




It was not all easy. Not only is it a home game, but they have a chance to capture a series lead for the first time in the series. You can't really say the same about Ehlers, who had a couple of assists but still didn't look very effective ... It was vintage Rinne, playing within the 4x6... flashing the leather and making the key save at the key time. Copp didn't see the ice much after that. Their lone tally of the game came from Patrik Laine during a 6v4 power play with just under a minute to play. But a sprawling Rinne kept it out with a desperate stab, blocking it with only the knob of his stick.

The Predators' offense attempted 32.6 shots per game in the regular season, resulting in 3.3 goals per contest (ranked seventh overall in the NHL).

The Jets will hold a "limited skate" Friday morning before boarding a plane for Nashville later in the day and gearing up for game 5 on Saturday.

The Nashville Predators appear to be following the same script that the Washington Capitals used the last two years. He's been through a lot of wars and a lot of battles, so we have no issues with that.
