Legwand tips a Ward slapper from the point past Quick, but alas it clanks off the crossbar and we remain tied 1-1 after two periods...
Lots of cycling that period, especially deep in the Nashville end as the period wore on, but few quality chances for either team as both teams are doing a great job keeping the attack to the outside and neutralizing anything to the middle...
Preds have to do a better job of making sure to get the puck deep in transition. Did a great job entering the zone with speed through the first half of the period, but once LA started stepping up through the NZ, we didn't seem to make the adjustment to get pucks deep...
Need to also do a much better job clearing our zone. Several extended shifts in the second period, which is normal with the long change, but each started with a turnover coming against the LA forecheck. Must make better decisions and get better help from the forwards coming back to clear the puck, rather than flying out of the zone looking to stretch or collapsing so low they can't clear the puck up their boards...
More traffic, more pucks at Quick in the third...the team that makes life more difficult for the opposing goalie in the third will come away with two points...
