The Nashville Predators on Monday signed restricted free agent left wing Sergei Kostitsyn to a two-year contract worth $6 million.

The Predators avoided losing Kostitsyn, an unrestricted free agent, last summer when they signed him to a on a one-year, $2.5 million contract. Kostitsyn, 25, finished with 17 goals and 43 points in 75 games in his second season with the Predators in 2011-12.

Kostitsyn has totals of 64 goals and 161 points in 307 career games.

It's hard to walk into that locker room and look those guys in the eye when they've played -- clearly, that was our best game we've played in the series -- and I thought we deserved a better fate tonight.
