Nashville Predators 4, Minnesota Wild 5 (OT): Preds’ streak vs Wild ends at worst time

The Nashville Predators took on the Minnesota Wild tonight in an attempt to get their feet back under them in the playoff race. The game started well, with the Preds out to a good start, before Luke Kunin took a penalty. The Preds’ penalty kill did a great job and kept the Wild’s power play from getting any shots on net, and with the penalty killed off the teams returned to even strength.

The Preds had a fantastic flurry of chances nearing the halfway mark of the first period, but although one of the Wild defenders ended up with a broken stick in there, Marc-Andre Fleury was able to make the saves, and the Wild eventually broke back out with some offense of their own and David Rittich was also tested.
