08:22 AM ET 04.29 | Barry Trotz couldn't help himself. [Trotz] took the bait, but only because he truly was steaming mad. When asked if he was more than just disappointed but instead mad -- or more -- at the way his team performed in Game 1 of the Western Conference Semifinals, the Predators coach jumped right into a passionate description of his emotions following Thursday's 1-0 loss at Rogers Arena. "Yeah, I am, and I think there is a lot of guys in that room that should be [ticked] off," Trotz said from the podium. "We always talk about winning as a group, and the biggest disappointment you can have is when you have an expectation from someone who you want to go forward with every night and they're letting you down. We had too many passengers, not enough guys pulling on the rope. We are in the Conference Semifinal. Are you kidding me? Not acceptable."
