Despite being outshot 41-30, the Nashville Predators defeated the Chicago Blackhawks by a shocking score of 7-2 -- and kicked ass in the process. Nashville showed up to play Saturday night, which was quite a refreshing moment after being outscored 17-2 in the last four games combined. This match was a classic example of underestimating your opponent.
The Predators opened up the scoring 7:28 in by netting two goals in fifty-seven seconds. Matt Cullen scored off a rebound, then Nick Spaling sniped Nikolai Khabibulin high glove side, which would be the final goal scored on him that night. Khabibulin left the game 15:23 in the first due to a lower body injury, which according to Blackhawks' head coach Joel Quenneville, could keep him out for "a bit".no comments
