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".

MacKinnon has been productive despite his line - which includes Mikko Rantanen and captain Gabriel Landeskog - being the focus of the Predators' defense.

Pastrnak shattered his previous career high of four points, scoring his third goal with 1:36 left to bring two trash cans full of caps and winter hats fluttering down to the ice. I feel that you will see a complete game from them in this one as they do not want to let the Avs back in the series. "I don't know if you guys panned over to the bench, but all of our jaws dropped". "I felt like we did enough to nearly earn a better result but now we're going to have to go and dig in even harder to make sure we do earn a better result". Behind Viktor Arvidsson, Filip Forsberg, Ryan Johansen, Kevin Fiala and P.K. Subban, there are still eight other guys on the Preds roster that have scored at least 10 goals, and that's not even including puck-moving D-man Ryan Ellis. The Predators are hoping to take the next step this year after losing to Pittsburgh in the Stanley Cup Final. Nashville had been 12-14-5 after giving up the first goal and 8-10-2 when trailing after the first period in the regular season.

Nashville is 55-29 straight up (SU) and has earned 16.3 units for moneyline bettors this season. They almost pulled off an upset in Game 2. The Predators have gone 25-16 on the road and they have averaged 3.00 gpg and have allowed 2.44 gpg in those games.

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.
