Postgame Wrap-Up: Missed Opportunities vs. Nashville

Avalanche couldn't convert on its chances in loss to the Predators

by Ron Knabenbauer @RonKnab / ColoradoAvalanche.com

When the Colorado Avalanche looks back at its game against the Nashville Predators on Monday afternoon, the team will see plenty of good things that it did but also too many missed opportunities that could have changed the final outcome.

The Predators defeated the Avalanche 4-1 at Pepsi Center after they tallied three times in the second period and received a 35-save performance from goalie Pekka Rinne.

"I thought we battled hard. It was a playoff atmosphere out there, and we have to find ways to get goals," said Colorado forward Matt Nieto. "Just a couple breakdowns here and there cost us. In this league when you make mistakes, you'll pay for them."
