With one second left on the clock Atlanta couldn't draw the faceoff back for a shot, therefore they put out a left-handed shooting center (Slater) to attempt to shoot the puck directly off the faceoff and then lined up all five of their remaining players in front of Pekka to attempt to create traffic, attempt a deflection, and/or bang home any rebound.

The Predators could not send the puck the length of the ice for a goal with that little time remaining, therefore Atlanta had no need for any defense and were thinking 100% offense at the moment.
