The longest losing streak in Nashville Predators history ended at 8 games with a 4-3 win over Calgary Tuesday night in Nashville.
It was the last home game of the season for the Predators who still have two road games in the season.
Head Coach Barry Trotz said “We really wanted to do something special” for a fan base that endured a rare losing season in Nashville.
Nashville trailed twice in the game but rallied twice to tie at 1-1 and 2-2 on goals by David Legwand and Nick Spaling.
In the third period the Predators dominated play taking the lead on the first NHL goal of Austin Watson's career. The former 1st round pick whipped a “wicked wrister” past Mikka Kiprusoff to make it 4-3.
Matt Halischuk added the insurance for Nashville with a goal moments later.
The Preds outshot the Flames dramatically 33-18.
