Found February 11, 2013 on Fox Sports Tennessee:
If the Nashville Predators were hoping to use Sundays matchup with Central Division rival Chicago as a sort of measuring stick, its time to throw that idea out the window. The Preds made so many mistakes in allowing the Blackhawks first goal that coach Barry Trotz suggested after the game that you could put a tent over that circus. Added center Mike Fisher: We really didnt challenge them very well. That wasnt our A game, no question. The Blackhawks, who are rampaging through their schedule still without a loss in regulation through their first 12 games met a fatigued Preds team that was playing its third game in four days. On the other hand, Chicago had arrived in Nashville on Friday and was well rested. The result, a 3-0 loss for Nashville, was not very competitive, as the Preds amassed only seven shots through two periods, and did not provide much of a useful example to see how they stack up against the leagues best.

Wilson's OT goal lifts Predators past Sharks

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- The Nashville Predators are sure lucky to have Pekka Rinne. Without their star goaltender, the Predators would have never even gotten to overtime against San Jose.

While no paint was peeled and no tables were thrown, the message sent by Trotz was very clear and very simple after the first period: garbage hockey. After a three-shot first period, Nashville fired 21 shots collectively...
