After all the dust settled from the fierce competition at Bridgestone Arena on Tuesday night the Predators and Pekka Rinne had seen their winning streaks broken by the 4-3 shoot-out lost to Vancouver.

No one appeared discouraged and all appeared to take the loss of a point for what it was, a great team effort marred by losing a man on man skills competition at the end of play.

The Predators continued to do many of the same things that had done well in their winning efforts. They had strong play by all four lines, a good defensive effort, and outstanding goaltending.

They showed great character by snapping back from an early two-goal deficit but never seemed to be able to slip in the fourth goal in regulation or in overtime, despite numerous scoring chances. Roberto Luongo can be credited for much of that failure.

Even with the point, the Predators slipped to fifth place behind the St. Louis Blues, who beat Ottawa. The team did gain ground on Detroit and are three back in the Division and Conference with 69 points.

The Predators now face a pair of crucial games against Eastern Conference foes playing at Ottawa on Thursday and at Boston in a matinee on Saturday. A pair of wins on the road would greatly help their cause as they continue to pursue the Western Conference lead.
