The Coyotes were able to pull off a 4-3 win in the first game of the 5 game series. The problem is the Predators started to battle back in the game and almost won the game, but fell short. The other thing that the Predators did was not start Rinne who had a long running streak of starting the playoff games in his career broken.
In the game the Coyotes were led in the offense by Kessel and Hall who both managed to land 2 assist. Dvorak, Grabner, Keller, and Ekman-Larson all scored a goal. Nashville ended up being led in the game by Forsberg with 2 goals in the game, but Ellis ended up putting in a goal from his defense men position.
Darcy Kuemper was the goalie who played great for the Coyotes in the game. Kuemper ended up facing a total of 43 shots on the day and saved 40 of them or 93%. He did have 2 power play shots saved, but also had 7 short handed saves as well.

With the Coyotes they managed to luck out with the fact that the Predators had Renne sit on the pine in the game. Granted Saros did good in the game, but it appeared that the big game pressure ended up getting to him as he played a little bit sloppy on the day. Look for the Coyotes luck to run out in this game here as Renne may end up being the starter for the Preds and that leads to the Predators winning the game in a back and forth defensive struggle. Final Score, Nashville Predators win 2-1.
