Predators' Matt Duchene: Sends assist in loss

Duchene notched an assist and blocked two shots in Monday's 5-3 loss to the Avalanche in Game 4. Duchene was fairly productive despite the Predators exiting the playoffs in a four-game sweep. The 31-year-old had three goals, one assist, eight shots on net, nine hits and a plus-1 rating. Expectations will be high for the forward after a 43-goal, 86-point regular season, though his 18.9 shooting percentage suggests fantasy managers should expect a fair amount of regression in 2022-23.

Predators' Matt Duchene: Scores both goals in loss

Duchene scored a pair of goals on four shots and added two hits in Tuesday's 7-2 loss to the Avalanche in Game 1. Duchene was the only Predator to solve Darcy Kuemper, though his goals were far too late in the game to make a difference. The 31-year-old now has points in nine straight outings (seven goals, six assists). He posted 43 goals and 86 points, both career highs, in 78 regular-season contests as a top-line option, though the Predators will need to get their depth going to have any chance in this series.

Let’s talk about Matt Duchene again

In our 2014 collaboration, Save By Roy, co-author Adrian Dater and I chronicled the Avalanche’s surprising turnaround 2013-14 season, their first after Joe Sakic was elevated to general manager and Patrick Roy took over as coach. Spoiler alert: Under Roy, the Avalanche went from second-worst in the league in the lockout-shortened 2013 season to third-best in 2013-14, with 112 points. The storybook season ended with a first-round playoff loss to the Wild, with the home team winning the first six games before the Wild took Game 7 in Denver in overtime.
