It almost happened on consecutive nights for the Predators.
Down three goals early in the game, Nashville clawed back to a one-goal deficit. But in the second half of consecutive games and playing on the road against a better opponent than the previous night, the Predators couldn’t pull off the improbable comeback against the disciplined Dallas Stars, losing 6-3.
The Predators (18-13-4) head into their two-day Christmas break having lost two of their last three games. Nashville next plays Detroit at Bridgestone Arena on Monday.
