Predators Leave Nashville, Head To Denver For Games 3 & 4

Pekka Rinne with 'save of the playoffs' candidate in Game 1 (Video) Predators dismiss Avalanche to get rolling on West title defence
Lucia Summers | 17 April, 2018, 15:42

Pekka Rinne made 25 saves as Nashville put together a strong finish to its playoff opener after winning Presidents' Trophy for the first time this season. Kevin Fiala also had a multi-point game for Nashville, as he notched one goal and one assist for two points. Nashville must be wary of Colorado, especially since the latter has scored the first goal in each game of the series. Can the Avalanche notch the upset win tonight as the series moves to Colorado?

What did we learn from Game One?

The same was said after Game 1 going into Game 2, but if Nashville falls behind early against the Avalanche, it may not be happy sailing for the Predators. P.K. Subban and Mattias Ekholm each had two assists. But I can't trust Bernier to shut down a potent offense, while I feel the Preds defense is probably going to improve after a lackluster Game 2 performance. The Avalanche came in with only 14 players with playoff experience, and their most seasoned player, Colin Wilson, was on Nashville's roster a year ago. Jonathan Bernier made 26 stops. I think we need to keep playing the same way. The first puck will drop at 10 p.m. ET on Monday, April 16, and it can be viewed live on NBC Sports Network. Rascal Flatts handled the anthem as the Predators continued their tradition of big stars stepping in for the postseason, and two catfish hit the ice nearly as soon as the last note ended.

The Predators were a bit sloppy early. The Avs are looking to avoid falling into a 3-0 hole against the Central Division champions. Through two periods, the shot-attempt battle was completely even. Austin Watson wired a wrister from a sharp angle at the right circle over the left shoulder of Bernier to ignite an already-raucous audience. Colorado is not playing all that well overall at the moment as they have now lost seven of their last 10 games, but still, no matter what happens the rest of the series, this season has been a success for them after posting the fewest points in the league previous year. Sam Girard took a beating from the Predators' forecheckers like we haven't seen all year, and it will be interesting to see how the undersized defenseman holds up over the entire series if that continues.

Sissons capped the scoring with an empty-netter with 1:57 left. He is averaging more than a point-per-game for his career against Colorado. During the regular season, he was 42-17 with a 2.31 GAA and a.927 save percentage overall, including 17-9 with a 2.07 GAA and a.937 save percentage out on the road. But the Preds were 11-1-2 when tied after two periods. The Sharks also are halfway to their first playoff series victory over Anaheim, their longtime downstate rivals.
