Anders Lindback earns 1st NHL shutout as Preds romp to 3-0 win

New, comments

It was a night of firsts tonight at Bridgestone Arena; Anders Lindback earned his first NHL shutout with 22 saves, Ryan Suter scored his first goal of the season, and the first time crawling back into playoff position for quite a while for the Nashville Predators. A convincing 3-0 win over the Florida Panthers has them back in the top 8 in the Western Conference, regardless of how the late games pan out.

Follow after the jump for the video highlights, audio of the post-game comments from a few of the Preds, and of course your advanced even-strength statistics...

First, the highlights and Panthers vs Predators boxscore:


I didn't catch tonight's game (as a father of 3 it's a rare chance to get your drunk on just walking distance from home, so I took it), but I can't recall running the advanced stats after a game and seeing two forwards dominate the Shots For/Against numbers like Patric Hornqvist and J.P. Dumont did below.

While perusing the stats below, check out the audio from the post-game media scrum, using the following links:
