Look at that, we’re already improving! The offense started woefully at the beginning of the season, but it feels like the Nashville Predators have finally started to break bad habits while establishing more of an identity.
When you compare what the offense was in the first quarter of the season, and even the second quarter, it was a bit rough.
Turnovers in the neutral zone, dumping and chasing to no avail, and only getting one-shot opportunities defined this system…if you can call it that.
Looking at Q3, the offense looks more confident in transition. The neutral zone can still be choppy at times, but the team is much better about navigating into the offensive zone, and once there, they get sustained opportunities.
It helps that there are also other members of the team getting some good scoring opportunities, and not just Filip Forsberg and Eeli Tolvanen. Rocco Grimaldi, Colton Sissons, Calle Jarnkrok, and even Viktor Arvidsson are rounding into form on the forward group and reigniting what was once one of the more stagnate parts of the team’s game.
