Born in the Massachusetts town of Marlborough, which is just west of Boston, one could’ve excused Nashville Predators forward Bobby Butler if his mind wasn’t on Friday’s game.

As Nina Falcone of CSN Chicago reported, Butler and the Predators were listening to the national anthem before the drop of the puck against the Chicago Blackhawks, just as law enforcement officers in Watertown were apprehending Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the remaining suspect believed to be responsible for the Boston Marathon bombings.

“He was caught?” Butler asked following the Predators 5-4 overtime loss.

“I just got the chills. That’s good, that makes the day even better, except we didn’t get the win. But they found him.”

Butler scored the tying goal that sent the game into overtime and added an assist.

Due to the manhunt to find the bombing suspect, Friday’s game between the Boston Bruins and Pittsburgh Penguins at TD Garden was postponed and then re-scheduled for Saturday afternoon.
