Anaheim, CA – In the third round of the shootout, Predators’ David Legwand lifts a shot up that is deflected off the glove of Duck’s goaltender Viktor Fasth and into the air. Viktor is able to gather the puck in to seal a 3-2 shootout win over Nashville for Anaheim at the Honda Center.
Anaheim’s Corey Perry went wide to the right, then swooped in to the middle, hit a wrist shot to the short side and past Pekka Rinne’s glove in the second round to give the Ducks a 1-0 advantage in the shootout.Nashville seem to be hunger for this one in the way that got at it to start the game. The Predators outplayed Anaheim in first half, keeping the puck on the Ducks side for most of the first period. The Ducks made some sloppy passes that the Predators were able to easily intercept.
The Ducks mishandled the puck on a Cam Fowler to Bryan Allen pass. Predators’ Brandon Yip gets the puck and goes the distance, shoots a backhand that rebounds. Yip followed his shot and has able to backhand his own rebound in for the score at 1:52 in the first.
Anaheim started to build momentum midway playing more organized towards the end of the 2nd period. The Ducks’ Teemu Selanne sent an outlet pass to Fowler who puts a shot on goal from the left point. Bobby Ryan is able to tip the rebound in behind Rinne to knot the game at 1-1 with 33 seconds left in the second period.
The Predators regain the lead when Kevin Klein hits a big shot from the point. David Legwand then backhand’s the puck past Viktor to put Nashville up 2-1 at 10:09 in the third period.
Anaheim ties the game 2-2 at 11:12 when Perry sends a perfect pass through traffic to Daniel Winnik near the goal. Winnik hits a backhand chip sending the puck past the outstretched left pad of Rinne.
Anaheim’s Viktor Fasth was the winning goaltender in his NHL debut.
Nashville’s Patric Hornqvist left the game due to injury in the third period when he got tangled up with Anaheim’s Ryan Getzlaf in the corner. The severity of the injury is currently unknown.
The Nashville Predators continue their road trip as they head to Glendale, AZ, Monday, January 28th to face the Phoenix Coyotes at Jobing.com Arena. The puck hits the ice at 8:00pm.
