The Nashville Predators Were Not At Their Best Last Night

from Joe Rexrode of The Tennessean,

There’s nothing terribly surprising about the Anaheim Ducks beating the Nashville Predators on Thursday at Bridgestone Arena to even the Western Conference finals at 2-2.

But it was a surprisingly terrible night for the home team. Until it became an incredibly stirring night. Until it ended like this — Anaheim’s Corey Perry flipped a shot that hit P.K. Subban’s stick and redirected past Pekka Rinne with 9:27 left in overtime to win 3-2, sucking a frenzy out of Bridgestone Arena that peaked when Filip Forsberg tied the game with 34.5 seconds left in regulation.

At that point, there was no way the Predators were going to lose. Until they did, in a cruel and fluky way.

“They threw one in and it went off my stick and in — tough one,” said Subban, who started the comeback with a slap shot past John Gibson with 6:27 to play in regulation.
