Predators Even The Series With Coyotes, Take Game 2

Featured Video Play Icon

Game Notes:

Arizona has a 1-0 series lead over the Predators thanks to a 4-3 win in Game 1 on Sunday. It was the franchise’s  first playoff win since 2012.

Arizona started goaltender Darcy Kuemper over fellow veteran Antti Raanta and Kuemper played well, making 40 saves. Nashville made the somewhat surprising decision not to go with playoff experience in goal and sat Pekka Rinne. Nashville coach John Hynes went with Juuse Saros in the series opener and it didn’t pay off as Saros had a rough start, giving up three goals in a span of 7:43 of the first period.

Oliver Ekman-Larrson scored a strange one in the opener, and the Coyotes are still without their regular season leading scorer center Nick Schmaltz.
