The Nashville Predators scored 2 in the first, while the Wild only scored one. Things were the exact opposite in period 2, though, when the Wild scored 2 and the Predators scored only 1. The difference maker was in the third, when the Wild didn’t score any and the Predators squeaked one in to get the win. Goalie Manny Fernandez started his 13th consecutive game, tying a career high.
