The Chicago Blackhawks finally got their coach back and their performance proved to be equally good, if not better than in the last three games. Unfortunately for them, the Nashville Predators was the team which was on the receiving end. “You can tell I’ve been away. I can’t talk any more,” Joel Quenneville, Chicago Blackhawks coach, stated. Odds.
The first period didn’t look like anything special. The Predators managed some pretty good shots but they never even looked like beating Corey Crawford. The goalie managed 31 saves and was on top of his game. The break for the Chicago Blackhawks came after the 17 minute mark. Patrick Sharp managed to find Tomas Kopecky who was ruthless in front of goal. He easily put it past the goalie and in the net to make it 1-0.
“I felt great throughout the whole game. I could see coming after the second into the third my voice all of a sudden it seems like it’s that first day of training camp or the first game back in the regular season. It’s been idle for a while. You have to raise it a couple decibels. We’ll get it back,” Joel Quenneville stated. Scores.
The second period wasn’t too much to look at. None of the teams managed to find the net again, and Kopecky’s goal was still the only one of the game. Both teams tried their best but the goalies were simply unbeatable.
“We had some chances, but we couldn’t find them,” Barry Trotz, Nashville Predators coach, stated. “There were some loose pucks every period that we couldn’t get a handle on.”
“There’s no more excuses,” Shea Weber, Nashville Predators captain, added. “There’s no reason why we should make mistakes. If we make them, we’ve got to make up for them and do better from it.” Las Vegas odds.
The third period belonged almost entirely to the Chicago Blackhawks. They managed to add to their lead right in the opening minutes and it didn’t look like the Predators would be able to fight back. It was Marian Hossa with the shot, just 35 seconds after the 2 minute mark. The rest of the period was just as uneventful as the second, with both teams trying, and none succeeding. The last goal of the game came 30 seconds before the final whistle. Patrick Sharp finally managed to get one for his own and set the final score at 3-0.
