Predators 4, Ducks 2: Honey Badger leads the way

The legend of the Honey Badger grew ever larger tonight, as rookie Craig Smith stepped into David Legwand's spot between Colin Wilson and Patric Hornqvist, and led the way with two goals and an assist as the Nashville Predators rolled to a 4-2 win at Anaheim. Hornqvist added 3 assists (at first it looked like he had scored a goal to keep his streak alive) and Wilson had a goal and an assist, giving that line a mind-boggling 8 points on the night.

Pekka Rinne made 31 saves to push his record to 8-4-2. Follow after the jump for the highlights...

I didn't catch this one, as I had a game tonight, but obviously it was huge to get Sergei Kostitsyn and Kevin Klein back in the lineup. The Preds have a few days to prepare for their next game, Regular Season Game #1000, on Saturday when the Montreal Canadiens come to Bridgestone Arena.
