Nashville, Tn — The Nashville Predators will take flight to the high altitudes of Colorado with a commanding 2-0 series lead over the Colorado Avalanche in the Stanley Cup Playoffs, winning today, 5-4.
The Predators scored by committee as five different players hit the scoreboard, but they still had to come from behind for the victory.
Colorado struck first, as they did in game one, when former Predator Gabriel Bourque found the back of the Nashville net just 2:34 into the game and Colorado took the early lead, 1-0.

NASHVILLE – The Nashville Sounds’ offense did not live up to the Friday Fireworks mantra and were shutout by the Omaha Storm Chasers 5-0 in front of a sellout crowd of 10,481 at First Tennessee Park. It was the second time in the 2018 campaign the Sounds have been shutout.
Sounds starter Eric Jokisch cruised through the first three innings, allowing just two hits before Omaha broke through in the fourth inning. Hunter Dozier collected a one-out double and came around to score when Frank Schwindel squeaked a triple just fair inside the first base bag that trickled down into the right field corner. Schwindel was brought home on a sacrifice groundout by Ryan O’Hearn.
