It may not be as sweet as a postseason sweep, but it still does the trick.
Five different skaters found the back of the net in the first matchup, and Filip Forsberg tallied a hat trick in the night cap, as the Nashville Predators defeated the Florida Panthers twice to take the doubleheader by finals of 5-0 and 5-3, respectively.
It was Forsberg's line, along with Ryan Johansen and Kevin Fiala, who led the way in the second outing, combining for all five goals and 13 points in total. Fiala finished with a goal and four helpers on the night.
It may be early, but it was quite a start for the Preds in their first game action since last spring.
