GM calls Preds' series loss unacceptable, promises changes

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) The NHL's winningest general manager is not happy with the Nashville Predators' diminishing returns, and David Poile made it clear Thursday that change is coming.

"Bottom line, this is unacceptable," Poile said in a video conference call. "And this is how we have to view this result is that we have to be better, and it's not acceptable."

Since winning the Western Conference and losing in the Stanley Cup Final in 2017, the Predators have had shorter postseasons each year with the latest a disappointing loss in the best-of-five qualifying series in four games to Arizona.
