NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) - It's a bittersweet day in Smashville as the Nashville Predators give their final update before sailing into the off-season.
The team knows they could've done more in the playoffs.
"We lost three home games, which is so disappointing because we fought so hard to get home ice advantage. In a nutshell for me, I just don't think we had the consistency we had in the regular season in the playoffs," explained David Poile, General Manager for the Predators.
Both head coach Peter Laviolette Poile, said while the season ended before expected, they are happy with the overall success of a record-breaking season.
"A lot of players expressed to us in the team meeting that they really believed in our team," Poile said. "They loved our team, they thought our chemistry and culture was really good. Again, if I was trying to frame it correctly, basically, I think what they were saying to the GM and coach is they didn't want to see a lot of changes."
The Nashville Predators will return to the ice later this fall.
