Nashville PredatorsNashville, TN – The Nashville Predators saw their franchise record win streak come to an end tonight at the Bridgestone Arena, as the New Jersey Devils won it in a shoot-out, 3-2.

New Jersey dominated the play throughout the game, after the Predators were first to score, and then took a 2-1 lead, until just over one minute in regulation, when Ryan Johansen tied the game at 2-2. 

Both teams had multiple scoring opportunities on the night, but the puck was a “quirky” thing tonight as players were “whiffing” on shots, and or missing empty net opportunities all night.
