Following a Game 2 loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins that put his team in an 0-2 series hole in the Stanley Cup Final, Subban came right out and said, "we're going to win the next game, and then we'll see what happens from there."
He slept on it, and still feels the same way.
"I feel even more confident now that I've had a night of rest," Subban declared Thursday, per Nick Cotsonika of NHL.com. "There's no question. We're going to win the next game, and then we'll move forward."
The Predators have gone 7-1 at home in the playoffs, and the Bridgestone Arena crowd should give the team a boost.
"You would think ... leaving Pittsburgh without a win, that might shake the confidence," coach Peter Laviolette said. "I can tell you that it doesn't. I just met with the guys. I can see it in their eyes."
Game 3 is set for Saturday at 8 p.m. ET.
