We can complain about the officiating as it played heavily into the series. There could also be discussion regarding the overly physical play that transpired between the two teams. Several fans have taken to Twitter to express their displeasure for the other team’s play. If we are being honest, both teams committed ridiculous penalties throughout the series. It cost the Predators a game at home. Luckily, they kept their heads on straight for Game 6 and closed out the lowest seed in the Western Conference.
There was plenty of action on the ice to keep things exciting. The opening game brought us the filthiest goal of the entire playoffs so far. Filip Forsberg‘s skill and poise amazed fans across the league.
And, let’s not forget Forsberg slick goal in Game 4.
Now, the handshakes are completed and the Predators move on to Round 2. They will need a complete team effort across the board to beat the Winnipeg Jets. Who played well, and who underperformed against Colorado?
