The Nashville Predators fell to the Carolina Hurricanes 5-3 Saturday evening. The began with the Preds taking three penalties less than five minutes into the game. Not the best start.

Mikael Granlund notched his first in a a Preds uniform Saturday evening. It was a weird call on the ice and the whistle originally blew, then a goal was celebrated, then deemed goaltender interference, then Nashville challenged the interference, which was overturned leading to Granlund’s goal.

Hear from Craig Smith and Mattias Ekholm on the slow start and how it needs to be fixed, plus Mikael Granlund on his first goal as a member of the Nashville Predators.

Nashville now heads on the three-game California trip taking on Anaheim, Los Angeles and San Jose on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, respectively.
