The Nashville Predators faced a very good Boston Bruins team (27-12-2) Thursday night and instead of getting quite decisively steamrolled they stuck to their guns and took the Bruins to overtime where they lost 3-2 and only picked up a single yet impressive road point. After a rather dull 35 minutes with both teams playing a possessional stalemate, Stalberg finally broke the deadlock after putting the rebound of a Fisher shot into a nearly empty cage. The play started with a visionary two line pass from Weber to catch the Bruins on a bad change. The Preds weren't facing Tukka Rask - the likely Finnish Olympic starting goalie, depending on Rinne's injury - they were instead matching up against the Swede Niklas Svedberg, who was playing his first NHL game.
You're also going to want to check out Jones' end to end attempt at the 4:30 mark of the 2nd. It's in the highlights and although not a goal was quite nice.no comments
