After 65 minutes of play the Nashville Predators and Minnesota Wild were knotted 1-1 and it took a lone shootout goal from Colin Wilson to give the Predators the victory and pick up the extra point.

Pekka Rinne was much improved over his efforts in the last few games, allowing a single goal and making 34 stops during full ice play and all three shots in the shootout. Josh Harding stopped 24 of 25 Predator shots and allowed one of two in the skills competition.

The game was scoreless until the third period when Jon Blum sent a shot through traffic that was tipped by Jordin Tootoo into the net to give the Predators a 1-0 lead at 7:00. The lead look like it could stand until Dany Heatley scored on a wraparound after a broken play with 3:59 left in the game.

The teams traded power play chances in the waning minutes of the contest but neither team could convert sending the game to overtime and guaranteeing both squads a point for the night's efforts.

Neither team dented the net in the extra period but Minnesota out shot the Preds 4-0.

Gabriel Bourque made his NHL debut and skated ten shifts for 8:05 in ice time and was credited with a take-away and a blocked shot while showing the aggressive play that earned him the promotion.

With the win, the Predators moved past the idle Dallas Stars into seventh place in the Western Conference with 42 points. The Predators now travel to St. Louis for a game against the Blues on Friday night that will close out the schedule for calendar year 2011.
