NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The Nashville Predators know only too well how good a goaltender Juuse Saros is after trying to beat him in practice for years.

It's hard for Duncan Keith to say goodbye to yesterday.
Pekka Rinne and Kevan Miller, too. Even more difficult for Zach Parise and Ryan Suter because it wasn't their call.
Moving on from the past is an early theme of the NHL offseason.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Pekka Rinne made sure to stick around Nashville longer than usual after the season ended with the Predators' first-round playoff exit.
