Predators Lose in Seven Games to San Jose

Sharks forward Dominic Moore looks for a rebound in front of Pekka Rinne.

The Nashville Predators do not really look like a great team on paper. They did, however, outperform expectations and clinch the eighth and final playoff spot in the Western Conference. Many critics believe that Shea Weber's heart is not in Nashville anymore, though. The captain finished the season with only 32 points and a -12 rating. A few of Nashville's skaters had breakout years. Sergei Kostitsyn hit 59 points for the first time in his career, Colin Wilson scored 50 points, and Jonathan Blum had 40 points on the point.

Things were looking good for the Preds in the playoffs. They started off their first series against the Sharks by winning the first three games. However, the Sharks pulled off a miracle comeback, and defeated the Preds in seven games. The Sharks went on to lose in the Stanley Cup Finals to the New York Rangers.
