Mixed Results and Feelings

A week that started with so much promise only took a few periods of poor hockey to turn into one of the worst weeks of the season. Now when you are talking about still garnering 5 of 8 points that clearly shows how far the Nashville Predators have come. Truthfully it was more about the type of play in those two losses. Like I said though the week started so well. The San Jose Sharks...

In the second period the Preds stepped up their possession time and more than doubled Carolina’s shots, but still plagued themselves with sloppy passes, turnovers...
