0 Predators suffer 2nd straight SO loss

By Justin Koehn

I'm no mathematician, but last time I checked two points was better than one. In the first two games of the season, the Predators have lost in a shoot out amassing a total of only two points. From my point of view, it is because they look completely disorganized on the ice and the lack of communication is causing their game to suffer tremendously.

I know it is only two games into the season, but the Predators are about to embark on a 7-game road trip against teams that could very well keep them in the same slump if they cannot change things. During regulation against the Blues, there was plenty of scoring chances that the Preds failed to capitalize on. Between miscues and poor neutral ice control, they just didn't see to have this game in their hands from the start. They were weak on the forecheck and seemed to be chasing St. Louis around the rink all night.

They continue their schedule tomorrow night at 7 p.m. central time in Minnesota to take on their former defensive man Ryan Suter. Lets hope they can break out of their one-point habit and gain a W against the Wild.

There is only so many overtime/shoot out losses you can take before you get too far behind in a tight 48 game season.
