Everybody else on the team has done their jobs just fine, but they just can't get a big save when they need it from Jonathan Bernier to keep them in the game.
The Avs would score one more time for the final score, 5-4, and suddenly Colorado found out why it's so hard to win in Nashville. Colton Sissons and Forsberg each scored twice, and backup goaltender Juuse Saros stopped 33 shots.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Ryan Hartman's empty-net goal with 1:09 left wound up the victor as Nashville held off Colorado for a 2-0 lead in the first-round Western Conference series. "I thought we played two pretty good games here in Nashville, and we couldn't get a win".

The Nashville forward wound up with not only the first playoff goal of his career but the victor with 1:09 left as the Predators held off the Colorado Avalanche 5-4 Saturday for a 2-0 lead in their first-round Western Conference series. Coincidentally, that starts with the Colorado Avalanche - another worst-to-first kind of team that emerged from the league's cellar to crack the playoff picture. One thing that came out of it was a rivalry. A win in Game 3 will make it almost impossible for Colorado to win the series, and the young team knows it.
Nashville's goal is to get the series over quickly.
