The Nashville Predators got a much-needed 4-1 win against the New York Rangers on Tuesday night at Madison Square Garden.
Here are five things from Tuesday night’s game…
- Rich Clune came into this game without a point on the season. He finished the game with one goal and one assist, and his goal ended up being the game-winning goal.
- Paul Gaustad had a very good night offensively as well, as did Matt Hendricks. Gaustad had one goal and two assists while Hendricks had one goal and one assist. It was a memorable night for Nashville’s “wagon” line.
- After going pointless in his last five games, David Legwand picked up two assists to bring his point total on the season to 22.
- Carter Hutton got the start in goal for the Predators and played well. He stopped 28 of 29 shots against and look very comfortable in net after not starting a game in a month.
- Seth Jones got only 9:29 of ice time and was paired with Ryan Ellis.
