Top Moments From 2011-2012 – #8: Vancouver Rollercoaster Comeback

A 3-1 lead after a dominating period of play versus the Vancouver Canucks in their own barn should hold…right?

A 5-3 comeback lead, scoring 4 goals in less than 20 minutes, against a now deflated and defeated-looking Predators team should hold…right?

Apparently the answer to both of those questions is a resounding no.

For the first of three dramatic comebacks in the final month of the year, December looked to hold a promising start only to be swept back under the rug in hopes that the team was just struggling to get out of November.

Nashville would grab 3 goals on 5 shots in the first period on Cory Schneider, taking a 3-1 lead into the locker rooms after 20 minutes. However, a rejuvenated Canucks squad with Luongo replacing Schneider after that dismal first period would show Nashville that they may have landed in British Columbia on the wrong day.

Scoring 4 goals in a 7 minute span in the 2nd, Vancouver tied and grabbed their own 2 goal lead and set their car on auto-pilot for the remainder of the night. Yet, this was the kick in the pants the Predators needed to right their ship and fix that nasty 5-3 score.

Enter the stage: Anders Lindback, Jordin Tootoo, Colin Wilson, and Mike Fisher

Lindback would stonewall the Canucks for the rest of the night while the Predators slowly chipped away at the new 2-goal deficit that stared them in the face.

Jordin Tootoo would score at 16:09 of the 2nd and Colin Wilson would tie the game 81 seconds later (in a crazy highlight-reel goal that you can see in the highlights below).

Going through a nearly scoreless third period, a goal seemed inevitable after the classic shootout spectators had witnessed in the previous 40 minutes. With less than 2 minutes left in the game, Mike Fisher put one past Luongo and capped off a 6-5 come-from-behind win when the Predators had their own 2-goal lead and a 2-goal deficit.
