Filip Forsberg scored twice, but it wasn't enough as the Nashville Predators fell to the Carolina Hurricanes, 6-3, on Sunday afternoon at PNC Arena. The result concludes a season-long, six-game road trip and sees Nashville's seven-game point streak come to an end.
Sebastian Aho recorded a hat trick for the Hurricanes, including goals on the power play and shorthanded, as the Hurricanes were the aggressors on the ice from the opening puck drop.
"We were outplayed," Preds Head Coach Peter Laviolette said. "The [Ryan] Johansen line was really good, but we were outplayed. They were quicker, they wanted it more and they executed better… We knew what we were getting into, and we didn't respond very well."
