Sharks vs Predators PDF Game 1 160429 postgame

Let the battle commence. (Pregame news/links)

The teams spent about the first five minutes of play feeling each other out and the Sharks worked on getting the rust out (with bad passes and missed positions).  Period ended 0-0.

Predators scored in the second on their second power play, leading 1-0 after 40 minutes.

The Sharks scored five straight, including two power play goals and two empty nets, in the third.  Predators desperately scored one with goalie pulled.  Hutton came in relief to play the last few seconds of the game.

(And as seen on TV: there was a black cat that ran across the ice before warm ups.  Not mentioned/seen at game, so perhaps it happened before the doors opened?)

Final score: Sharks 5-2
