Predators dominate defending champs with 7-2 victory over Blackhawks

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Rookie Marek Mazanec made 39 saves for his first NHL victory and the Nashville Predators beat the Chicago Blackhawks 7-2 Saturday night.

Craig Smith scored a goal and added two assists for the Predators. The three-point game equaled the Madison, Wis. native's career high.

Matt Cullen, Nick Spaling, Patric Hornqvist, Viktor Stalberg, Mike Fisher and Shea Weber also scored for Nashville, which ended a four-game losing streak.

Patrick Kane and Brandon Pirri had the goals for Chicago, which had its four-game winning streak snapped.

Making his second start in as many days, Mazanec stopped seven shots in the first, 17 in the second, and 15 in the third.

Quote of the Day
