Lindy Ruff snatched the Devils’ poor game after losing to the Predators


Nashville, Tenn. – Roman Josie and Alexandre Carrier each scored and helped lead the Nashville Predators to a 4-2 win over the New Jersey Devils on Friday night.

And Devils coach Lindy Ruff was not a happy camper after this.

“It’s probably the worst game I’ve ever seen play,” Ruff said. “We have never won competition wars before. Did not engage earlier. Conveniently second in a lot of plays. We were not beating anyone tonight. This is just the truth. ”

Andreas Johnson and Tomas Tatar scored goals, and Jonathan Bernier made 27 saves for New Jersey, losing two straight.

Philippe Tomacino and Michael Granlund also scored goals and Juice Saros made 23 saves for Nashville, two of which were winners.

“Our execution was strong, and it allowed us to get into the game and be under attack,” Nashville coach John Hines said. “I think some of the work we did in the offensive zone was more deliberate than what we did the other night. We were able to create quality looks, quality zone time. It went back to some constructive stuff. The guys were tough on the pucks.

Soros was relatively untested in the first 40 minutes, flipping seven New Jersey shots to the side in the first and second.

“We’re not ready and we need to find a way,” Devils captain Nico Hischier said. “There is no excuse. We have to be ready. Everyone should do it separately. There is no excuse.

Josie scored the first goal of the game at 7:31 of the opening period. With teams 4-on-4 skating, Josie’s hard-angle wrist shot from the lower left circle squeezed between Blackwood’s pads.

Two days after falling to the Vegas Golden Knights 5-2, the Predators were delighted with their effort on Friday.

“Against Vegas, we gave them a few goals, a couple of bad trades, that didn’t really work out of our zone, and tonight I thought it was great,” Josie said. “Especially in the first one. You can see that we have a lot of pressure, a lot of zone time, a lot of shots.

Tomasino made it 2-0 at 3:30 of the second.

From the left wall, Nick Cousins ​​sent a focused pass to Tomasino in the slot, where he was able to get enough puck to tip Blackwood past his fourth goal of the season.

The Predators take an 8-0-0 lead after two periods this season.

Granlund extended Nashville’s lead to 3-0 at 6:45 of the third after taking a pass from Matt Duchenne below New Jersey’s goal line.

Duchen has 20 points in 20 career games against the Devils.

Johnson ruined Saros’ shutout at 11:58 of the third, scoring his seventh of the season.

Carrier scored an empty-net goal with 1:10 remaining, and Tatar quickly followed that with a goal at the breakaway in the final minute.
