Yannick Weber logged just 7:40 of ice time in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final.

His defense partner, Matt Irwin, played for just 9:04 in the contest. Nashville does lean heavily on the top-four defense group, but the ice time for Weber and Irwin against Pittsburgh on Monday was their lowest of the postseason. Weber explained the limited playing time had to do with matchups, special teams and the Predators trailing on the scoreboard.

28-year-old Yannick Weber is happy to finally make it to the Stanley Cup Final.

"When you've played in the League for a while, you know how much it takes, how much you have to be in the right spot and with the right team," Weber told the media on Sunday. "So being on that team this year, knowing we have the right pieces to make it far and then actually having a great playoff series - every player at the start of year, that's their goal - so it's nice to be one of the teams that actually made it." Weber picked up his first point of the playoffs in his last outing versus Anaheim.
