Forsberg, Kunin Lead Preds to OT Win Over Montreal to Finish Homestand

Kunin Records Gordie Howe Hat Trick, Forsberg Scores in Overtime as Nashville Collects Two More Points

by Justin Hershey @justinhershey26 / NashvillePredators.com

Three periods and six regulation goals weren't enough to decide a matchup between the Nashville Predators and Montreal Canadiens on Saturday night, but it was Filip Forsberg and the Preds that found a way to win an overtime thriller, 4-3, at Bridgestone Arena.

Forsberg played the hero in the 3-on-3 period, sniping his 11th goal of the season off a beautiful feed from Mikael Granlund from behind the net. Forsberg fumbled his stick on the left wing just seconds before scoring, and by the time he picked it back up, Granlund delivered the puck right to his tape and the winger took care of the rest.

Game Day: Canadiens vs. Preds Preview

Nashville Hosts Montreal to Conclude Homestand with 6 p.m. CT Start at Bridgestone Arena

by Brooks Bratten @brooksbratten / Content Manager & Beat Reporter

Another three-game homestand concludes tonight in Nashville as the Predators host the Montreal Canadiens with a special 6 p.m. CT start time at Bridgestone Arena. This evening's contest is the second and final meeting between the two clubs this season; Matt Duchene had a natural hat trick in the third period as the Preds fell in Montreal last month.

The Predators have split their homestand thus far with a 6-0 victory over Columbus on Tuesday followed by 2-0 loss to Boston Thursday night. Nashville registered a season-high 42 shots against the Bruins, but they were unable to find the back of the net, unlike when Filip Forsberg did so four times on his own against the Blue Jackets.

Preds Record Season-High Shot Total in Loss to Bruins

Nashville Registers 42 Shots, Unable to Solve Boston Goaltender at Bridgestone Arena

by Brooks Bratten @brooksbratten / Content Manager & Beat Reporter

Recap: BOS 2, NSH 0

Bruins, 2 - Predators, 0

Boston Bruins, 2 - Nashville Predators, 0

  • 05:07 •

The Predators recorded a season-high 42 shots, but they were unable to beat Bruins goaltender Jeremy Swayman as Nashville fell to Boston by a 2-0 final on Thursday night at Bridgestone Arena. The result gives the Preds a split through the first two outings of their three-game homestand and keeps them at 25 points through 23 games on the season.

Nashville had plenty of chances against the Bruins - and they weren't necessarily disappointed in their effort - but they just couldn't get anything to fall on this particular occasion.

Game Day: Bruins vs. Preds Preview

Nashville Hosts Boston as Homestand Continues Following Forsberg's Four-Goal Performance; Former Preds Forward Craig Smith Returns

by Brooks Bratten @brooksbratten / Content Manager & Beat Reporter

After closing out the month of November with a four-goal performance from Filip Forsberg, the Nashville Predators begin their December schedule tonight when they welcome back Craig Smith and the Boston Bruins to Bridgestone Arena. Tonight's contest is the first of two meetings between the Preds and B's this season; Nashville will visit Boston in January.

The Preds started their three-game homestand on Tuesday night, and Forsberg enjoyed one of the more memorable outings in recent memory when he scored four times in Nashville's 6-0 rout over Columbus. The effort followed a 6-2 loss in Colorado last Saturday, and following the victory against the Blue Jackets, Predators Head Coach John Hynes offered some insight into the decision to give Preds players not one but two days off before beginning the homestand.

Years from now, most will look back on Filip Forsberg's four-goal night and remember just that - how No. 9 in Gold became just the third player in Predators franchise history to tally a hat trick and then some - in a 6-0 victory over Columbus.

But forever a humble hockey player, Forsberg was interested in directing the credit to his teammate and linemate, Mikael Granlund, who was busy setting his own records on Tuesday night in Nashville.

Scoring four goals in a single game is a rare feat, but Granlund's performance to make it happen is perhaps even more impressive when given the proper attention.
