Five things the Hurricanes did to beat the Predators — and can carry forward against the Lightning

Much like the rest of the series — and the rest of the Carolina Hurricanes’ season, really — Game 6 of the first round in Nashville wasn’t pretty. There were no lacrosse goals, sparse offerings for the highlight reels, and it got off on the worst foot possible, with a Predators goal just 1:44 into the game.

But the Hurricanes knew what they had to do.

“I think when you have the chance to close out a team, that’s exactly what you want to do,” Jordan Martinook said after morning skate Thursday. “You don’t want to give them another chance. We obviously know they are going to be a desperate team, but we’re going to be just as desperate because we want to close it out. (In) game sevens anything can happen.”

And so in the fourth consecutive overtime situation and sixth game of the series, the Hurricanes eliminated the Predators in a 4-3 decision.
