Hornqvist's 2 goals helps Predators dent Sharks' division title hopes with 3-0 win

SAN JOSE, Calif. - Patric Hornqvist had two goals and one assist to help the Nashville Predators put a dent into San Jose's hopes for a division title by beating the Sharks 3-0 on Saturday night.

Backup Carter Hutton made 35 saves in his first career shutout and Roman Josi also scored as the Predators kept their slim playoff hopes alive by beating winning road games on back-to-back nights against Anaheim and San Jose — the top two teams in the Pacific Division.

Nashville is six points behind Dallas for the final playoff spot in the Western Conference with four games remaining.

Quote of the Day

He's, believe it or not, actually one of my favorite guys, and I've ended up trading him twice. I appreciate what he's done. He was one year away from being an unrestricted free agent, and I felt with this opportunity, that it was a chance that we were able to get somebody for him in Nick Bonino and Adam Clendening.
