game." said Assistant Coach Doug Slipacoff "It was an
improvement over last nights game." The Predators lost to

"I thought we battle 60 minutes
real hard but we just couldn't get any bounces and couldn't
find a way to get the equalizer at the end of the game when
we needed it. We have a lot of learning to go here, we
have a lot of young guys and our roster is really young but
it will come together." said Slipacoff
