With the calendar in March and games against teams vying to make the playoffs on the schedule, the Predators knew they had to kick their desperation factor up a notch or two.
Nashville showed that emotion and then some in a 4-2 victory over the Colorado Avalanche in front of an announced sellout crowd of 17,113 on Thursday at Bridgestone Arena.
The Predators were not happy with their Tuesday loss to the Kings and showed it against the Avalanche.
“It’s a mindset. Obviously we made some big moves at the deadline, and maybe we thought things would come easy,” defenseman Shea Weber said. “We need to realize we’re a hardworking team and we have to stick to our foundation, and that will lead to success.”
