The Nashville Predators overcame a feisty Colorado Avalanche team to move on to the second round. We look back at the best moments.
Let’s be honest. The Nashville Predators weren’t perfect in the first round. They failed to show up at the beginning of the first three games. They let up at the end of a couple of games. The Colorado Avalanche gave them a good fight & have reason to believe they can get deeper into the playoffs sooner rather than later.
At the end of the day, the Predators were the better team. They move on to a highly-anticipated second-round matchup with the Winnipeg Jets. We’ve been waiting for the Predators vs. Jets playoff series since early in the regular season. It’s going to be a war.
Before we get there, let’s look back at the first round.
Best Goal: Filip Forsberg, Game 1
We’ve been waiting for more of Filip Forsberg’s shots to find the net. They’re starting to get there. Forsberg co-led the Predators with four goals during the first round. There were a couple that were just too pretty for words, including this one from Game 1.
Samuel Girard had to miss a couple of games due to injury after Game 1. It may have taken a few days for his ego to recover after that one.
