Scoreboard watchers probably assume that the Nashville Predators blew the doors off of the United Center last night, being that the final score was 4-1. Naturally, people who actually saw the game will note that two empty net goals masked what was a tight one goal game.
While Antti Niemi allowed a backbreaking soft goal, Pekka Rinne was a rock in net for the underrated Nashville Predators. He made 25 saves on 26 shots, including this absolute beauty on a clever move by Blackhawks forward Patrick Sharp.
