58 Minutes of Bad, 4 Minutes of Good. Predators Win Over Jackets in OT, 4-3

Apparently playing a 60 minute game is no longer necessary for Nashville. After what could have been easily called an atrocious game for the Predators, Nashville scores twice in the last 96 seconds and finishes it off 1:45 in OT to pull a win from out of nowhere and beat the Columbus Blue Jackets 4-3 in front of a stunned Nationwide Arena crowd

Nashville has now gone 3-3-0 in their past 6 and this win could rejuvenate an almost lifeless team

HIGHLIGHTS:

Special Teams:

Powerplay – 1 for 1, 100%
Penalty Kill – 1 for 1, 100%

Best Play of the Game: 13 seconds to go in the game, Nashville ties it up at 3. Ryan Suter passes it over the Martin Erat who fires a wrister that goes off of Sergei Kostitsyn. Unbelievable sequence of events that sees the Predators score 2 goals in less than 90 seconds.

Worst Play of the Game: Patric Hornqvist makes it a 1 goal game at 18:24 of the third period but then gets a blatant cross-check/boarding from Nikita Nikitin. There was no penalty on the play, which is an absolute travesty. If Shanahan doesn’t go back and look at that hit, it will be an absolute crime.

My Three Stars:

#1:  - Patric Hornqvist – 1 goal, +1 on the night. Hornqvist gets beat up, scores the pre game-tying goal, and is out there for the tying goal. Hornqvist got the Predators to overtime, no question about that.

#2: – Sergei Kostitsyn – 1 goal, 1 assist, E on the night. Tied the game with 13 seconds left in the game. First points in quite a while for SK

#3: – Colin Wilson – 1 goal, +1 on the night. Game-winning OT goal for Wilson. On an otherwise quiet night for him, Wilson finishes it off and sends the Predators home happy

———————————

For the first 58 minutes of the game, the Predators looked horribly brutal. There is absolutely no better way to put it.

For the final 2, though? It was the Predators style of play that fans and writers alike have been used to.

Patric Hornqvist and Sergei Kostitsyn scored 83 seconds apart to send the game into overtime and Colin Wilson finished it off at 1:45 of overtime.

Don’t let the win fool you, Predators fans, there are issues looming with this team right now that have to be addressed immediately for Nashville to actually start winning games in regulation and not have to wait for the final 2 minutes to actually start playing hockey.

With an identity visibly not there yet this season so far, the Predators need to take this momentum from tonight’s victory and utilize it Saturday night against Bruce Boudreau’s Anaheim Ducks club.

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