Predators coach Barry Trotz said he could fault goaltender Carter Hutton for one of the five scores he allowed in Nashville's 6-1 Saturday loss to St. Louis.
It was the fifth goal, scored on a wrist shot by Derek Roy.
Otherwise, the other four were caused by team breakdowns.
Hutton was yanked midway through the third period after stopping 21 of 26 shots. Rookie Magnus Hellberg came in and faced four shots on goal, making three saves in his NHL debut.
