The Nashville Predators’ 5-4 overtime loss to the Chicago Blackhawks on Monday had all the hallmarks of the type of game Coach Barry Trotz likes:
“The DNA, the work ethic, the resiliency, good goaltending, all those things. We got a power-play goal. The penalty-kill was able to keep them from scoring tonight…”
Then Trotz paused.
“But we made it hard on ourselves, and that to me frustrated me.”
