Under the Scope: Oilers at Predators


The Oilers have now been shutout twice, in back-to-back games as the Oilers leave Nashville with a 6-0 loss. Devan Dubynk was pulled after the first period when he let in an goal from centre ice and was replaced by Yann Danis in the second. Danis was tested early and 51 seconds into the second, Rich Clune got his own rebound and scored to extend the Nashville lead. The Predators were able to capitalize on two of the four powerplays while Pekka Rinne was sharp and stopped all 24 shots on net. The Oilers were outshot 34-24 and have now been shutout for 164:29.

David Legwand's goal from centre ice in the first period gave the Predators their second of the game. The puck took a few bounces before beating Devan Dubynk on the glove side. The goal was Legwands's fourth of the season.
