Cullen scores winning goal in shootout, lifts Wild over Predators 2-1

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Matt Cullen scored the shootout-winning goal to give the Minnesota Wild a 2-1 victory over the Nashville Predators on Saturday night.

The Wild, who have won two of three, sent Nashville to its fourth loss in five games.

Quote of the Day

Obviously a lot happened in a short period of time. At the end of the day, considering everything I went through, I really felt close to my teammates and I really feel like what we accomplished, I know we didn't win it all. ... I'm really proud of how we got there and what we did once we got there.
