January 20, 2024 – Roman Josi established a franchise record and Tommy Novak netted his eighth goal of the season but the Nashville Predators ultimately fell to the Arizona Coyotes, 3-2, at Mullett Arena on Saturday.
“It was a little disappointing,” Predators Head Coach Andrew Brunette said. “We did a lot of good things at different times of the game, we just lost a little momentum in the second and we had a couple shifts where sequencing led up to goals that kind of changed the flow of the game, and we had a hard time getting back on track after after they made it 3-1.”
Despite the final score, Josi’s second-period power-play goal was one for the record books.
His 167th career goal saw Nashville’s captain pass Shea Weber for the most goals by a defenseman and the third-most among all skaters in Predators history; Filip Forsberg (261) and David Legwand (210) hold the first- and second-most, respectively.
The result sees Nashville conclude their three-game road trip at 1-2-0 and move to 25-20-1 on the campaign.
Puck drop at Bridgestone Arena is at 7 p.m. CT on Monday, with the game set to broadcast on Bally Sports South, 102.5 The Game and El Jefe Radio. Click here to get tickets.
