Predators Win 2-1 With 2 Sec. Left In OT

January 12, 2017

With hardly any time to spare, the Nashville Predators got it done.

Calle Jarnkrok scored shorthanded with 1.5 seconds remaining in overtime to defeat the Vancouver Canucks by a 2-1 final at Bridgestone Arena on Tuesday night, the latest regular season OT goal in club history. The win gives the Preds a 18-16-7 mark overall and their first overtime victory of the season.

After Roman Josi put the puck in the net early in OT, only to have it waved off for incidental contact with the goaltender by Viktor Arvidsson, Nashville regrouped and found another way.

"We just knew we had to stick with it," forward Austin Watson said. "There's only two ways to go about it. You either keep working or just kind of give up, and we're not going to do that. We know we have to battle and find a way; like I said, it's kind of fitting that it ended that way."

Canadiens Take Down Predators 2-1 In OT

January 04, 2017

Shea Weber scored in his return, and the Montreal Canadiens defeated the Nashville Predators by a 2-1 final in overtime at Bridgestone Arena. Max Pacioretty got the winner for the Canadiens, sending Nashville's record to 16-14-7 overall and 0-4 in overtime this season.

Predators goaltender Pekka Rinne made 41 saves on the night, with the Canadiens outshooting Nashville 43-23, a stat not necessarily indicative of how the entire game played out. Nonetheless, the Preds found themselves on the wrong side of the scoresheet when all was said and done, another frustrating result.
