History not in Nashville’s favor after lopsided victories

Thursday night’s game against the Ottawa Senators hinted a of a post-blowout hangover and it didn’t disappoint. Rather than a full 60 minute letdown against the Senators, Nashville instead only faltered for a single twenty minute segment: the second period. Leaving the first period with a 1-0 lead against Ottawa, for all intents and purposes a fairly solid start to the game...

Nashville controlled the play in the first period and looked to be continuing their winning ways. But then…. the second period happened. Carter Hutton actually played a pretty decent...
