Good road game by the Predators. Got timely scoring and good goal tending (except for that 2 minute blip in the 2nd period). Heck the Preds even got another powerplay goal and a shorty. The Preds finished this 5 game road trip with a 2-2-1 record.
Smithson (A+) - When your fourth line grinder gets the game winning, short handed goal you deserve an A. He had only 1 shot, but that is all this sniper :-) needed with a great toe drag move.
Weber (A) - 1 goal on the power play and 1 assist. Was a plus 1. Only recorded 1 SOG. Missed several shots wide of the net. Good defensive play.
Klein (B) - Led all Preds in ice time with over 24 minutes. Finally Weber and Suter didn't have to play 25 minutes. Plus 1 with 3 blocked shots.
Sullivan (B) - 2 assists, but only 1 shot on goal. They really need to get Sully going in the goal column.
Santorelli (B+) - Got his 1st NHL goal when a Ward shot hit the toe of his skate and went into the goal. 3 shots on goal. Looked more confident.
Ellis (C) - Great 1st period, horrible 2 minutes and 18 seconds of the 2nd where the Wild scored on 3 straight stoppable shots.
Rinne (A+) - Shut the door on the Wild. Made big saves in the 3rd period where the Preds were outshot 11 to 6.
Next up the Hawks back in Nashville.
