Losses likes this early in the season are one thing because you have plenty of time to regroup and recover. Not so much when you take a 8-3 loss to a team you’re battling with for a possible wildcard spot.
It was tied 3-3 going into the final period, but the Predators were pretty fortunate to even be tied. Then everything unraveled as the Predators surrendered five goals in a span of just over five minutes of regulation time.
Another bad night for Pekka Rinne
Rinne was benched after goal No.8 was surrendered, but I thought he should’ve been pulled when it was 5-3.
