I am sure that the absence of the oft-injured Steve Sullivan didn't help. Sullivan had 60 points in 57 games in the regular season , but did not play a game in the playoffs.
The Preds looked completely undisciplined as well. Alex Radulov looked like he was going to become a star in this series, only to receive a 1-game suspension on his hit on Steve Bernier. His hot streak dried up during his day off.
Peter the not-so great
Was it worth it signing Forsberg? I think now that is was questionable, especially considering the fact they gave up
Scott Nichol is a jackass
And that was typical of the Preds' undisciplined play. When Nashville had a 2-1 lead and momentum in the 2nd period, Scott Nichol took a bone-headed spearing penalty and received a 5-minute major for it. About 3 minutes later Patrick Marleau tied the game and the Sharks never looked back. In a series where the games are so close, that kind of behaviour is unacceptable.
So what does the Predators' organization do now?
