Gaudreau, Predators’ answer to Guentzel, scores on saucy wraparound

3 Comments

Jake Guentzel isn’t the only rookie standing out in the Stanley Cup Final.

While Guentzel is approaching all-time rookie records for a postseason in powering the Pittsburgh Penguins, Frederick Gaudreau‘s surge has been a bit more specific to this series for the Nashville Predators.

Gaudreau generated two goals through the first three games of the series, and he added a nifty one on Monday, putting the Predators up 2-1 in the second period.

It’s the sort of wraparound move that would create grumblings in dorm rooms during the “NHL 94” days, but in reality, it was just fantastic. The “Freddie!” chants were well-earned (and loud).
