The Nashville Predators finished the regular season with a stop at Dallas to take on the Stars. For the Predators, the game meant nothing. In fact, Pekka Rinne, Mike Ribeiro, Mike Fisher, Shea Weber, and Roman Josi did not make the trip.
The game was certainly meaningful for the Stars, however. Win and they have a chance to clinch the top spot in the Central.
After going up 2-0 on goals by Ryan Ellis and Calle Jarnkrok, the Predators gave up a hat trick to Jason Spezza to fall 3-2.
This game was...blah.
It meant nothing, and the best thing about it was that the Predators got out healthy.
Other than that, just...meh.
Of note, Craig Smith, Filip Forsberg, and James Neal played all 82 games for the Predators.
There is not much else to mention about this game.
A full playoff preview will come next week.
