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.
