In what could have been the wildest game of the year so far, hands down, Nashville had a 3-1 lead after the first, went down 5-3 in the second before tying it, and scored the game winning goal with 76 seconds left in the third (in which they were dominated the whole period).

Nashville gets a huge win to try and right the ship before playing 9 of 13 at home for the rest of the month of December.

HIGHLIGHTS:

Special Teams:

Powerplay – 3 for 3, 100%
Penalty Kill – 2 for 4, 50%

Best Play of the Game: N

Worst Play of the Game: As Henrik Sedin sits behind the net with the puck on his stick, no Predators player on the ice decided to challenge him. That gave Sedin enough time to wait till Burrows found his way in front of the net for an easy score to make it 4-3 Vancouver.

My Three Stars:

#1:  - Anders Lindback – 19 saves on 19 attempts in relief of Pekka Rinne. Lindback saved the Predators tonight, there is no question of that

#2: – Mike Fisher – 2 goals, +2 on the night. Game winning goal for Fisher and an all-around strong game

#3: – Craig Smith – 0 goals, 3 assists, +2 on the night. Smith was the assist-machine tonight getting him back into the rookie scoring race

———————————

Talk about a wild one?

Nashville got the scoring off to a bang in the first period pocketing their first two shots of the game. David Legwand made it 1-0 5:44 into the first on a powerplay goal while Mike Fisher made it 2-0 less than 3 minutes later on a great backhand attempt.

However, Vancouver’s powerplay is lethal and they were set out to prove it. Cody Hodgson cut the lead to 2-1 on a powerplay goal at 9:58 of the first. Yet, if the Canucks were trying to gain some momentum, it wouldn’t start there as Shea Weber fired a bomb from the right side to make it a 3-1 game on another powerplay goal with 10 seconds left in the first.

Then the fun began.

In 10 and a half minutes in the second period, Nashville went from a 3-1 lead to a 5-3 defecit. Daniel Sedin, Aaron Volpatti, Alex Burrows, and Jannik Hansen all scored for the Canucks and made every fan in Nashville wonder just what the Predators had done to deserve such punishment.

That would be all she wrote for Pekka Rinne, who would be pulled in favor of Anders Lindback for the remainder of the game, and boy did that move pay off. Jordin Tootoo and Colin Wilson tied the game up before the end of the second to send both Canucks and Predators fans off to the break with a 5-5 tie.

The final frame would see the Vancouver Canucks dominate the Predators in their own zone for the majority of the period, however Nashville would complete the epic fall and comeback with Mike Fisher icing the cake at 18:44 after a beautiful centering feed from Martin Erat.

Stay tuned to The Predatorial Saturday morning for the gameday preview of the Sabres game!
