NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Despite blowing a three-goal lead in game one of the NHL playoffs against Chicago, the Nashville Predators are not panicking yet.
Losing 4-3 Wednesday night in double overtime the Predators are anxious to get back on the ice for game two Friday night.
Captain Shea Weber said Thursday that the team has to win four games and one game means nothing in the grand scheme of things.
The team was upbeat despite losing their seventh straight game and are now putting game one behind them as they prepare to try and even the series.
“I mean it’s one game, you have to stay even keel,” said Pekka Rinne. “You work so hard to get into this situation and you have another opportunity.”
Peter Laviolette added, “One game doesn’t have anything to do with what happened two days ago or four days ago or game one of the series going to game seven. Every game is it’s own identity and you gotta get yourselves ready to play mentally and physically the grind of it and our guys will be ready.”
Game two is scheduled for 8:30 p.m. Friday night at Bridgestone Arena.
