Blackhawks Take 3-1 Lead Over Nashville
The hundredth shot on goal during Tuesday night’s game has drowned Nashville, giving Chicago Blackhawks their long-awaited win. Blackhawks Defender Brent Seabrook blasted a shot from the blueline, the last shot of a triple OT, beating Nashville Predators goaltender Pekka Rinne to guide his side to 3-2 victory in game 4 of the series.
The Blackhawks now lead the Central Division semi-final series 3-1.
“I’m glad it’s over. It’s been a long night,” said Seabrook. “Our trainers do a good job of keeping us hydrated and fruit and all sorts of crap that makes us feel better. But five periods is a lot of hockey, and I’m glad it’s over.”
Though the game was keenly contested as nobody expected the Predators to be such a tough nut to crack without Shea Weber and Mike Fisher in the lineup. For a brief moment, it looked as if the game is going badly for the Blackhawks.
The Predators were 2-1 up with regulation time ticking over and nine minutes away from pulling off an upset victory.
But the Blackhawks did what was expected from them, snatching the victory by scoring late goals. Brendon Saad has restored parity with 8:57 minutes regulation time remaining.
