P.K. Subban: Had 'tremondous run' but fell short of dream

The feelings of sorrow and disappointment were palpable in the Nashville Predators' locker room after losing Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final 2-0 to the Pittsburgh Penguins on Sunday night.

But despite losing the Cup Final in six games and falling just short of their ultimate mission, there were still plenty of positives the team's players were taking from their lengthy playoff run.

Those positives will become more apparent as time passes. In the meantime, it was difficult for the Predators to get past the pain in the moments immediately following Game 6.

"You dream about lifting the Stanley Cup as a young kid," defenseman P.K. Subban said. "Your dreams happen probably a million times for most of us. Being that close, being two games away, 120 minutes away from lifting the Stanley Cup, it sucks. For us, we did so many things well and this was such a tremendous run for our team. We have such a young team and I think we gained a ton of experience from this run."

The Predators overcame plenty to win the Western Conference and advance to the franchise's first Cup Final appearance. With a 41-29-12 record, they were the bottom seed among the 16 teams that qualified for the Stanley Cup playoffs. Starting every series on the road, they also overcame injuries to some of their most important forwards, particularly top center Ryan Johansen and rookie wing Kevin Fiala.
