(WSCR) – Saturday was a disappointing rematch from the playoffs as the Predators hunted down the Blackhawks in a shootout. The Blackhawks were ahead 3-2 going into the third period, but Nashville scored to bring the game into a scoreless overtime.
Nashville won its second consecutive game, both of which required extra time. Prior to Thursday night’s shootout victory in St. Louis, the Predators had lost five straight.
Chicago has dropped three in a row.
In the shootout, O’Reilly beat Chicago goalie Marty Turco with a wrist shot on Nashville’s first attempt.
All three Predators goals in regulation came from defensemen: Shane O’Brien, Shea Weber and Cody Franson.
Jack Skille scored twice for Chicago and Viktor Stalberg had the other Blackhawks goal.
