A disastrous second period doomed the Predators tonight as the Preds lost to Chicago 4-2. Up 1-0 at the end of one period, the Preds gave up goals on the first two shots of the second and could never mount enough offense to overcome the Blackhawks. This hurts, as St. Louis is currently up on Phoenix 3-1 late in the second period. Now we have to win the last two on the road and get some help. Not much else to say, except this hurts. Badly.
