Predators Game Update (Via the Nashville Predators PR Department)

Team Notes

  • The Predators played their ninth overtime game this season – the most in the NHL – improving to 4-5 in those games (including 2-4 in the shootout).
  • For the second time in three tries this season, the Predators won on the back end of a back-to-back (previously defeating Minnesota 3-1 on Jan. 22).  The team will play six more times on consecutive nights, with the next set beginning on Friday night against Vancouver.
  • The Predators were awarded six powerplay opportunities, equaling the most the they’ve had in a game this season (Jan. 21 and Feb. 9).  On the other side of the books, Nashville allowed only a pair of powerplays to the Red Wings, marking the third game in a row in which they’ve given up only two man-advantage opportunities.
  • The Preds’ PP unit was successful for the third time in four games.  Eight different skaters have now scored on the powerplay for Nashville.
  • Nashville improved to 4-1-3 at Bridgestone Arena, and has gone 3-0-1 in the last four games at home.
  • Nashville improved to 3-0-1 when leading after two periods, and 6-3-3 when being outshot.  The team also scored first for the 11th time in 2012-13, earning a point in each of those games (6-0-5).
  • The Predators blocked 15 shots on the night, bringing the team’s season total to 269, tied with Colorado for the top spot in the NHL.

Player Notes

  • With the game-winning overtime goal to go along with an assist, Shea Weber has now scored six points (3g-3a) over his last four games, including back-to-back multi-point games.  The Predators’ captain has now scored goals in three straight games for the first time in his career after beginning the season without a goal in his first 14 games.
  • Like Weber, Colin Wilson has also recorded back-to-back multi-point games (2a tonight).  Wilson now has seven points (2g-5a) in his last five contests, extending his career-high points streak.  Thirteen of Wilson’s points – and all four of his multi-point games – have come in the month of February.
  • Craig Smith’s powerplay marker was his first goal of the season and first since the 2011-12 season finale.  He now has points in consecutive games.
  • Roman Josi also scored his first goal of the season and, like Smith, he last scored in the 2011-12 season finale.  Josi lead all Predators in ice time, skating for 23:55, marking only the second time in 17 games that Weber has not lead the team.
  • Scott Hannan’s assist on the Bourque goal was his first point in a Predators uniform.
  • Sergei Kostitsyn extended his points streak to three games (1g-3a).

Attendance: 17,113 (21st consecutive sellout)

Three Stars: 1) S. Weber 2) P. Datsyuk 3) G. Bourque
