Timely scoring and spectacular goaltending helped the Nashville Predators to a 2-0 series lead for the first time in franchise history. And now they’re coming home.
The Preds beat the Anaheim Ducks 3-2 in Game Two of their Western Conference First Round series on Sunday night at the Honda Center to take a commanding lead away from Music City. Nashville got better throughout the night and eventually wore down the Ducks on their way to a victory.
“Everyone in this room believes that we’re capable of doing this, and I think we showed we can beat any team,” defenseman Mattias Ekholm said. “Anaheim was No. 1 in their division and have a heck of a hockey team, but the way we’re playing right now, and we have (Pekka Rinne) in net, he’s awesome every night, and we’ve just got to keep battling.”
