Wild Blanked By Nashville Thursday
The Nashville Predators beat the Minnesota Wild 4-0 Thursday night in Tennessee. The Wild is now 3-7 on the season.
Nashville broke a scoreless tie with a goal just 37 seconds into the second period by Miikka Salomaki. The Predators made it 2-0 at 19:31 of the second with a Calle Jarnkrok goal.
