After a quirky ending that included an offside review on a potential game-winning goal in overtime, the Nashville Predators defeated the Minnesota Wild 2-1 in the shootout Tuesday evening. The win moved Nashville to 109 points, still atop the standings. With their 49th win, Nashville also moved into a tie for second place in wins with the team from 2005-06. By earning the point in going to overtime, the Predators also secured home ice advantage in the first round of the playoffs.
Forward Ryan Hartman, while not appearing on the scoresheet, continued to prove his worth by drawing two penalties and blocking two shots in the game. Hear from him, Scott Hartnell and Peter Laviolette in post game video.
