The Nashville Predators Put Away The Pesky Colorado Avalanche

from Joe Rexrode of The Tennessean,

Nashville, your professional hockey team might be all right after all.

Denver, yours has a future and deserved the ovation it got Sunday at Pepsi Center after a postseason that wasn’t supposed to happen went longer than anyone not affiliated with the Colorado Avalanche would have guessed.

Winnipeg, you said you wanted Nashville, and Nashville you shall get.

Maybe this will hurt the Predators in that pending, monster series against the Winnipeg Jets, and maybe it will help. Extra work and travel on one hand, affirmation of this team’s resolve on the other. We’ll find out in the next couple of weeks. But on Sunday the Predators earned the right to bask for a few moments in a 5-0 throttling of the Avs to take the first-round series 4-2, because every series victory in the Stanley Cup playoffs is something.


Watch the game highlights below.
