Matt Duchene‘s goal 14:54 into the second overtime gave the Predators hope in their series with the Hurricanes in Game 3. Nashville’s 5-4 win puts them in a spot on Sunday to even their series with Carolina with another victory.
“It feels really good,” said Predators head coach John Hynes. “It’s nice we found a way to win and get ourselves back in the series. For the players, the fans and the organization, it’s a good night.”
Juuse Saros‘ 52 saves tied a Predators playoff franchise record that was set by Dan Ellis in 2008.
According to the NHL, teams leading 2-1 in series are 362-154 all-time in best-of-seven rounds. The Predators have not won in their last 10 games when trailing 2-1 in a series.
One storyline to watch in Game 4 is the refereeing. Hurricanes head coach Rod Brind’Amour was not pleased with the disparity in calls between the teams. Nashville has seven power play chances to Carolina’s three.
“We’re also fighting refs, that’s plain and simple,” he said.
