Predators' Special Teams Struggle in Two Game Losing Streak
The Nashville Predators ended their three game road trip with extremely undisciplined play in their 5-2 loss to the Arizona Coyotes.
The Preds committed six penalties and the Coyotes took advantage of that by scoring three times on the power play. Phil Kessel scored his first two goals as a Coyote and they all came on the power play. The only bright spot on the night came from Dante Fabbro who scored his first goal of the season.
In their first game back at home, Nashville was stunned by the Florida Panthers who won 3-2 in a shootout. Nashville had four opportunities to score on the power play and only capitalized once when Kyle Turris scored to tie the game up at 2 in the third. The score remained tied until Vincent Trocheck netted the game winning goal in the shootout.
The Predators will try to get back in the win column tonight as they take on the Anaheim Ducks. Puck drops at 7:00 PM CT.
