CHICAGO – The Nashville Predators don't have a lot of time to get over another heartbreaker.
The Predators are on the brink of elimination from the Stanley Cup Playoffs after losing 3-2 in triple overtime to the Chicago Blackhawks on Tuesday in Game 4 of the Western Conference First Round. Brent Seabrook's goal 60 seconds into the third OT put Chicago ahead 3-1 in the best-of-7 series. The Predators will try to stay alive by winning Game 5 on Thursday (9:30 p.m. ET; NBCSN, SN360, TVA Sports 3, CSN-CH, FS-TN).
It was the second time in the series that the Predators came up a goal short in a multiple-overtime game. They lost 4-3 in double overtime in Game 1 despite outshooting the Blackhawks 54-42. This time, the Predators outshot the Blackhawks 52-48 but were unable to solve rookie goaltender Scott Darling in extra time.
