It's becoming increasingly difficult to describe the Predators’ inability to seemingly do anything right.
Here was an opportunity Saturday against the Coyotes to properly start the latter half of the regular season and put the unexceptional first 41 games behind them. Instead, Nashville's listless offense resurfaced in a 4-0 loss, the latest setback in a confounding season.
"It's tough to answer," Predators forward Filip Forsberg said when asked why these performances have become the norm. "We haven't been playing as good as we wanted really at any point of the year so far. I don't know. It's just not good enough."
