The Nashville Predators got out in front of the Florida Panthers and never looked back. They played a pretty good all around game and provided the crowd with several sources of entertainment.
The Preds came out flying when Ryan Suter jumped in on the rush and scored his first goal of the season just 1:14 into the game. The Preds have several chances after that, including one that hit the post. Then, it happened. Jordin Tootoo delivered one of the most violent hits I've ever had the opportunity to see in my 18 years of living. He absolutely DESTROYED Frolik. He got absolutely nailed. Then, near the end of the period, Shea Weber blasted one home and gave the team a 2-0 lead.
Joel Ward added an empty netter in the 3rd period to seal the game. Anders Lindback was absolutely fantastic. He even resorted to head-butting a puck in order to save it. The kid is truly unreal and a pleasure to watch.
The Preds take on the Islanders Monday night.
