Nashville Predators comeback falls short to the Columbus Blue Jackets 4-3

 

Nashville PredatorsColumbus, OH – The Nashville Predators fought back from a two goal deficit in the third period tonight only to fall short in overtime to the Columbus Blue Jackets, 4-3.

The Predators were playing this game with Pekka Rinne in net with the absence of Juuse Saros who was unavailable for the contest.  Rinne doesn’t normally play in back-to-back games, but was forced into action tonight.
