Coming into Monday night, the Nashville Predators had an opportunity to do something they’ve never done before: take a 3-0 series lead.
It took until Tuesday morning but they did just that.
Dennis Rasmussen and Patrick Kane scored in the middle frame for Chicago’s first goals of the playoffs but it wasn’t enough as Filip Forsberg put the team on his back, burying two goals in the third period to force overtime.
In the extra stanza, James Neal found Kevin Fiala in front of Corey Crawford and the young Swiss winger danced around the Chicago goaltender to pot the winner 16:33 into overtime.
Pekka Rinne made 34 saves on Monday night/Tuesday morning, giving him a grand total of 93 saves on 95 Chicago shots this series. What does Thursday night have in store? You had better be there to find out.
