The common mantra around the Predators is that they have no superstars. They need a team effort to win.
Joel Ward once again turned this notion on its head.
Behind the forward’s strong play, the Predators beat the Canucks 4-3 on Saturday to win an elimination game for the first time in franchise history. The victory tightened the best-of-seven series at 3-2 and forced Game 6 in Nashville on Monday at Bridgestone Arena.
