Through hard work, perseverance, and a little luck, the Nashville Predators capitalized where they needed to and drew the game out to a shootout where Pekka Rinne sealed the deal. The win gets Rinne and the Predators back on track after losing 2 straight games while sending the Minnesota Wild to their 8th straight loss. After giving up 19 goals in their previous 4 games, Nashville gives up only a single tonight for their 11th one-goal victory of the season and the 20th game where the margin of victory has been one goal (11-5-4 this year for Nashville in those games) HIGHLIGHTS: Special Teams: Powerplay – 0 for 2, 0%
Penalty Kill – 3 for 3, 100% Best Play of the Game: Colin Wilson dekes Josh Harding over to the right side and roofs it from his left to give the Predators a 1-0 lead in the second half of the first round of the shootout Worst Play of the Game: Colin Wilson wins both tonight! After an egregious giveaway 3 minutes in the third period to Kyle Brodziak, Pekka Rinne was able to stone him cold. Awful puck turnover from Wilson. My Three Stars: #1: – Pekka Rinne – 34 saves on 35 shots. Classic Rinne was in the net tonight and he was nearly perfect tonight. #2: – Josh Harding – 24 saves on 25 shots. On the losing end of the goaltenders duel tonight, however he made some amazing saves when he needed to. #3: – Jon Blum – 0g, 1a, +0 on the night. Originally credited with Nashville’s only goal of the night, it was later given to Jordin Tootoo. All around great game for the rookie. ——————————— Stay tuned to The Predatorial tomorrow morning for the gameday preview of the Stars game! ——————————— Stay frosty, friends.
