Three times in less than seven minutes during the second period of Friday night's 1-0 loss to Phoenix, the Nashville Predators had golden opportunities to get on the scoreboard.
Not only did they not score, they didn't even hit the net.
In the Predators' eyes, that was where Game 4 of the Western Conference Semifinal series was lost.
"I thought we generated lots of chances, just didn't find the back of the net in the end," Predators coach Barry Trotz said. "Take away the first period -- [in the] second and third period I thought we played very well. Got some quality chances and couldn't find the back of the net."
