NHL: Predators break skid through positivity

Coach John Hynes says the Nashville Predators remained positive in order to get out a four-game losing skid.

The Predators, 28/1 to win the Stanley Cup in 2021/22, beat the high-flying Florida Panthers 6-4 on Tuesday to break their unwanted streak after trailing 1-0, 3-1 and 4-3 in the game.

Florida streak ended

In addition, the Predators ended Florida's nine-game winning run at FLA Live Arena. The Panthers had not lost on home ice since 16th December.

Defenceman Roman Josi had a goal and an assist to extend his point streak to six games (ten points; one goal, nine assists).

Netminder David Rittich started his first game since 18th January and made 44 saves to help the Predators out-tally the NHL's highest scoring team.

Despite their recent slip in form, the Panthers remain in Stanley Cup playoff contention sitting fourth in the Central Division with a 29-18-4 record.

47-year-old Hynes is in a third season in charge of the Predators and has led them to the playoffs in each of the previous two seasons.

Positivity remains strong

He said to the media after the victory over Florida: "You wouldn't have been able to tell that we had lost four games.

"There was energy, there was camaraderie, there was focus and understanding things that we did well and things that we didn't do well.

"We didn't get too low, but we stayed focused on making sure that we were doing the right things."
