The Predators do not have many "pretty" goal scorers. Instead, they are a blue-collar offensive team that puts four, solid, almost interchangeable lines on the ice and tries to wear down opponents.
Coyotes goalie Mike Smith is playing exceptionally well right now and is "in the zone."
In order to score on Smith and reduce his confidence, Nashville needs to be more aggressive, crash the net and get more rebounds and deflections.
Goals will be hard to come by, so Nashville needs to score "dirty goals" from in close on tip-ins, deflections and rebounds.
