Predators Star Goalie Ruled Out For Game 4

The Nashville Predators have been without star goaltender Juuse Saros for the entire first round. Due to his absence, the team currently trails the Colorado Avalanche 3-0 in the series. Unfortunately for them, Saros will not be returning for Game 4 because of his injury.

Saros has resumed skating, but he is not in a position where he can- return to action. Due to this, the Predators are expected to run with Connor Ingram yet again for Game 4. He performed excellently in his first two starts, as he had 79 saves in 83 shots. However, Game 3 was a different story, as he allowed six goals on 41 shots.

The Predators were underdogs heading into the series, as the Avalanche of course are legitimate contenders. However, Saro's absence has stacked the odds against them even more. Alas, let's see if we have a Cinderella Story on our hands and Nashville reverse sweeps Colorado.
