Predators Survive Late Rally Attempt, Knock Off Blackhawks 3-1

Getting a 2-0 after one period, Nashville would have to hang on over the next 40 minutes. Not being able to get anything done in the second, Chicago would take advantage and score a powerplay goal midway in the third period.

After a late flurry of chances to try and tie the game, Nashville would collect an empty net powerplay marker to make it a 3-1 final and would go on to win their 4th straight game and back-to-back-to-back-to-back wins over divisional opponents.

Going into the All-Star break, Nashville will sit in 3rd place in the division, 5th in the conference, and 5th in the league overall

—————–

Special Teams:

Powerplay – 1 for 3, 33%
Penalty Kill – 3 for 4, 75%

Best Play of the Game: Patric Hornqvist scoops the puck off the board and soccer kicks it back to Mike Fisher who rips it past Corey Crawford, making it 2-0 Preds at 17:34 of the 1st period

Worst Play of the Game: On their second straight powerplay of the third period, the Blackhawks wasted no time in firing shots at Rinne. Dave Bolland fired one off of a Marian Hossa feed that beat Pekka Rinne, getting Chicago on the board at 7:20 of the third

My Three Stars:

#1: – Pekka Rinne – 25 saves on 26 shots. Rinne is on fire right now and I hate that there is an All-Star break coming up. As much as Rinne deserves rest, it would be nice to let him continue while he’s burning hot

#2: – Mike Fisher – 1 goal, 0 assist, +1 on the night. Fisher with another goal added to his numbers and it was a beauty as well. However a 3 for 11 night in the faceoff dot has to improve.

#3: – Dave Bolland – 1 goal, 0 assist, +0 on the night. Pulled the game to within one late in the contest, but too little too late
