So if you look at the Nashville Predators’ schedule you will see that the Preds have won 4 straight games. This all started with a hard fought overtime win on St. Patrick’s Day over the Boston Bruins, but then efforts started to slide. In a 3-1 win over Detroit they leaned on the play of two rookies to get the scoring and the stellar play of Pekka Rinne to keep the points coming. Sunday’s game against Buffalo Anders Lindback allowed two soft goals while the Preds looked dead for 50 minutes, relying on Geoffrion, hat trick to him by the way, to get the scoring done again. In Buffalo there was no intensity to be seen from the Predators until everyone thought the game was over with Nashville down 3-1 with 4 minutes remaining. Last night against Edmonton started off well but lacked any sense of desperation for the final 45 minutes of the game. The Predators play Anaheim tommorow and if they bring the same effort relying on 15 minutes of good hockey then, I’ll tell you they are not getting to 5 in a row.
