Quick Notes from the Preds Loss to Florida

The Preds fell to the Panthers by a 3-2 score in a game that they went from not deserving to win, to giving the game away. Two defensive breakdowns in the 3rd period proved to be the difference.

David Legwand had a goal and an assist, extending his scoring streak to four.

Shea Weber extended his point streak to 7 by adding an assist on Legwand's 3rd period goal.

Tough one to give away, but the Preds have more important business to take care of this weekend against Chicago. Not that these 2 points given away weren't important, because they were, but Nashville needs to send a message to the Blackhawks. A weekend sweep against the hated Hawks would tremendously help the confidence of the Preds, ans shove a knife straight in the back of Chicago.
