The Nashville Predators Lose A Point Which May Come Back To Haunt Them

from Gentry Estes of The Tennessean,

A season once drowning in disappointment was saved in time for the Nashville Predators to play meaningful games and chase a playoff spot at the end of a shortened regular season.

But on Wednesday night in Chicago, the added significance only made a fresh setback even tougher to swallow.

The 5-4 overtime loss to the Blackhawks will go down as a stunningly disappointing moment in this season, especially if the point the Preds dropped by blowing a late three-goal lead ends up costing them in the NHL's Central Division three-team race for one playoff spot.

"We were playing really good until that moment," said forward Mikael Granlund. "I think we got a little loose there, and it just happened. ... We had a great chance to get two points, and we only got one tonight. That's on us."
