Hartnell scores the franchise's 1,000th goal in OT win at Anaheim
/ Nashville Predators
Nov. 21, 2003
The 1,000th tally in Nashville Predators’ history couldn’t have come at a better time. After Greg Johnson scored No. 999 with just 3:58 left in regulation to send the game to sudden-decision overtime, Scott Hartnell beat Anaheim’s J.S. Giguere to dramatically make goal No. 1,000 a game-winner. Rem Murray and rookie blueliner Dan Hamhuis set up Hartnell’s sixth goal of the season.
The Predators reached the 1,000-goal mark in their 428th game. The 2003-04 season marked the first in which Nashville scored over 200 goals (216) in a season, and it also marked the team’s first trip to the post-season. The 2006-07 edition holds the franchise’s high mark for goals with 272.
