Adam Rotter:

  • A frustrating night for the Rangers as they had numerous chances to score but couldn’t find a way. They weren’t perfect by any means but they had long offensive shifts, a bunch of chances in front but couldn’t get more than two in the net.
  • Another frustrating aspect was the PP as the Rangers couldn’t convert on the man advantage. Even worse was that after two good PPs in the second period, the Predators scored right away when things got back to 5 on 5.
  • The reffing in this game was less than ideal, with the elbow on Buchnevich only being two, Lemieux getting a 10-minute misconduct and Fast being mugged right next to the ref and both he and Fabbro going off.
  • It’s also interesting to wonder how differently the game goes if Artemi Panarin’s shot early in the second went fully over the line.
