The Nashville Predators liked the way they played during Friday's 4-1 loss to the Winnipeg Jets.

The Preds came out and fired 20 shots on goal in the first period and 48 shots overall, but they were never able to grab a lead. "You always hope for more chances, but I thought we did a pretty good job of just shooting the puck," defenseman Roman Josi said. "We had a lot of zone time trying to create chances. They played well. They have some big (defense) and big players. They protect the net pretty good." Sure, the Preds had a lot of shots on goal, but they'll need to fire them from more dangerous areas if they're going to beat Jets goalie Connor Hellebuyck.
