Predators look to generate some offense early in the next period but Joseph Korpalski’s shot is saved by the pad of Jack Poidomani who makes two amazing saves at the net to keep the opponent of the scoreboard.

Grady Blessing continues the attack on a breakaway but gets tripped up by Owen Martinez so the ref rewards a penalty shot. Time for the free shot as Blessing eyes the net, slows up, and scores between the legs of the goalie.

Now it’s time for the Green and Gold to show off their passing. Evan Ziegler feeds the puck to Ryan Burk who goes backdoor to Caden Cast and can easily tap in. 5-0 Hockey club heading into the third.
