Predators Beat Bruins in Shootout

Coming off a 1-0 loss against the Devils and a rough 0-2-1 stretch, the Bruins could’ve really used a win against the mediocre Predators. At this juncture, they’d definitely settle for a point.

The Bruins barely salvaged that point Saturday night against the Predators thanks to a game-tying goal from Zdeno Chara at 18:44 of the third period, which forced overtime. After a scoreless OT, the Predators took the shootout 2-1 and finished with a 3-2 victory. The B’s grabbed the point with the shootout loss.

David Legwand scored his 13th goal in the first period and added a short-handed goal in the second to put the Preds up 2-0, but the Bruins clawed back. Blake Wheeler scored his 16th goal at 13:25 of the second period to get the B’s within one goal, and Chara scored 13th to tie it up in the third.

Despite the shootout loss, Manny Fernandez was strong in net for the B’s (except on the shorthanded goal). He finished with 29 saves against 31 shots.

Legwand delivered the win, adding a third “goal” with the shootout clincher for the Preds, who are now at 27-26-3 on the year. The Bruins stand at an NHL-best 39-10-8 (86 points).

The B’s will look to redeem themselves Tuesday night against the Hurricanes.
