Five straight losses have basically washed away any chance the Nashville Predators had of making the playoffs.
The latest setback was a 5-2 defeat on home ice at the hands of the Dallas Stars on Friday night.
The issue of whether people were quitting was brought up post-game with Predators defenseman and captain Shea Weber, as per Josh Cooper of The Tennessean.
“It better not be,” Weber told The Tennessean.
“Everyone has got to take care of themselves, I can’t go around and babysit every guy. It’s a personal thing, and like I said, the other game, you have to look yourself in the mirror and say you’re playing your hardest and you’re giving everything you can to help the team win.”
The Predators have just six games remaining in the season and are currently 13th in the Western Conference and seven points out of a playoff spot.
