So apparently it rubbed cry baby Kane the wrong way that Nashville actually played defense against him…
Kane: "They kind of sat back but their transition game is fast and they played with a lot of speed the other way that gave us problems."

What did he expect? Nashville saw that they were facing two of the best players in NHL history in Kane and Toews and adjusted accordingly. His complaint would be valid if the Preds got a one goal lead and just sat back on their hands, but like he said their transition game was fast and they used it to their advantage.
Nashville’s defense did a fantastic job of pushing Chicago’s star forwards to the wall and not allowing a single easy shot all series, the defensive rotation was great, Pekka was phenomenal and Nashville took advantage of offensive opportunities that its defense created. As for Kane hoping that Nashville loses, at least they aren’t on the golf course buddy.
