Last night's game in Calgary was a typical match between the Predators and Flames where there was plenty of defense and excellent goaltending at both ends of the ice.
The last time the teams met, Pekka Rinne had a 2-0 shutout but this time the tables were turned with Miikka Kiprusoff picking up the 1-0 blanking of the Predators.
A redirected shot by Derek Smith was the only score in the contest and was the first goal of Smith's NHL career.
One of the few highlights of the broadcast came during the first intermission when Jordin Tootoo's nose started bleeding profusely during his interview with Terry Crisp.
The Predators have now lost five of their last six games but it is somewhat encouraging to see the defense and goaltending return the last two nights.
The team will play in Vancouver on Thursday night before returning home to play Buffalo on Saturday night. This weekend's game begins a run where 14 of the team's next 19 games will be in Smashville so it will be an important time to be point collectors.
