The Nashville Predators were coming off of a surprising home win on Monday night against the Edmonton Oilers, and came into last night’s game against the lowly Chicago Blackhawks with a big opportunity to keep that going.
Fortunately for the Nashville Predators, they got the result they wanted, winning it 4-2 in regulation while dominating most of the possession and high danger chances.
Getting four goals was a welcome sight, as the Predators have had lots of trouble generating offense throughout the majority of the season. That being said, and as is usually the case with this team, it was far from the prettiest victory.
They followed a good first period with a not so good second period by giving up odd-man rushes. A reoccurring and troubling trend. Although the offensive production was a bright spot, it went stale for much of the second period, so there was some inconsistency there as well.
But two points is two points, and the Nashville Predators got a win. There were several positives from what was still a well-deserved victory.
