When the Predators needed a big score in the regular season, the power play was there.
Through two games against Detroit in the Stanley Cup playoffs, Nashville is suffering from a power outage. The Predators squeaked by in Game 1 without any power-play goals, but in Game 2 they weren’t so lucky.
The Red Wings got timely scoring while the Predators couldn’t pull even with multiple power-play chances, losing 3-2 in front of an announced sellout crowd of 17,113 at Bridgestone Arena.
“When you have success with something all year and it doesn’t come through for you, it’s frustrating,” defenseman Ryan Suter said. “I mean, if we stick with it, I think it will come.”
