Roman Josi gets 3 assists as Nashville Predators beat Chicago Blackhawks 3-2

CHICAGO - Roman Josi had three assists, Ryan Ellis scored in the third period, and the Nashville Predators beat the Chicago Blackhawks 3-2 on Friday night for their third consecutive win.

Mike Fisher and Patric Hornqvist also scored for Nashville, which has won two of three against Chicago this season. Shea Weber had two assists, and Pekka Rinne made 31 saves.

It was the second straight loss for the Blackhawks, who are struggling to keep up with the top contenders in the rugged Western Conference. The reigning Stanley Cup champions dropped to 10-8-7 in 2014.

Jonathan Toews and Peter Regin scored for Chicago, and Corey Crawford made 26 saves in his 200th NHL game.

Quote of the Day

I don't know how he does it. I don't know how he gets his body parallel with the player and pulls it through his legs like that. I know he's tried it a couple times in practice and it's never worked, so how he does it in a game, it's incredible.
