It's win-or-go-home for the Predators as they head into Game 5 of their opening-round playoff series, which means the Blackhawks can expect to face a determined, desperate team tonight in Nashville.
Coming off a triple-overtime loss in Game 4 — which was also the longest game in Nashville's history — the Predators have found themselves down 3-1 in the series. Less than 10 percent of NHL teams have ever come back to win a series after facing that big of a deficit, but as head coach Peter Laviolette said earlier in Chicago, his team "will not go away quietly."
"They've put themselves in a position that's very hard to come back from," Predators beat reporter Adam Vingan said Thursday on the Kap and Haugh Show. "But this team has proven through most of the regular season they can be a dominant team. They're gonna need to look like that in Game 5...they're on their last chance."
