A goal from Kevin Fiala and a behind-the-back save from Pekka Rinne helped the Nashville Predators force overtime, but the Anaheim Ducks prevailed, 2-1, in a shootout on Monday night at Honda Center.
With a point earned in the standings, Nashville's point streak on the road reached the nine-game mark. Seeing its franchise-record and near-NHL-best road winning mark come to an end, however, wasn't easy to accept.
"We had a lot more to give," Preds defenseman Ryan Ellis said. "[Anaheim] played well. Give them credit, they were moving their feet, they were making plays, but I thought we weren't the best version of ourselves tonight. It comes down to a shootout, and it wasn't our way this time."
