Neals hat trick lifts Predators past Chicago 3-2 Teresa M. Walker | Associated Press NASHVILLE, Tenn. James Neal scored a natural hat trick on his bobble head night, and the Nashville Predators edged the Chicago Blackhawks 3-2 on Thursday night to become the last NHL team still unbeaten in regulation this season. The two Central Division rivals came in as the only teams yet to lose in regulation. They played into overtime six nights earlier in Chicago with the Blackhawks winning 2-1. The Predators earned points in their seventh straight game before a sellout crowd, continuing their best start since the 2010-11 season when they got points in each of their first eight. For Neal, it was the fifth hat trick of his career. Acquired in a trade with Pittsburgh in June, Neal has five goals in four games. Filip Forsberg had two assists. Ben Smith and Andrew Shaw scored for Chicago. With Chicago trailing 3-1, Shaw tipped a rebound past goalie Pekka Rinne at 12:36 of the third. That gave Chicago fans making the trip down for the game a reason to get loud again. source: http://www.journalgazette.net/article/20141023/SPORTS2004/141029759/-1/sports12

Blackhawks fans invade Nashville in large numbers (again) | Puck Daddy – Yahoo Sports

The Blackhawks have outscored opponents, 15-7, in their first five contests tied with the Lightning for the second-best goal-differential in the league (Anaheim is +10). * The Predators beat the Coyotes, 4-3, in a shootout on Tuesday, and have now tallied at least one point in each of their first six games of 2014-15 (4-0-2 record). Dating to March 30 last season, Nashville is 10-0-3 in its last 13 tilts overall the longest point streak in franchise history. * Nashville lost, 2-1, in overtime to the Blackhawks in these clubs first meeting of the season, and has taken at least one point from four straight games vs. Chicago overall (3-0-1 record).

With Crawford out for at least two more games (upper body), the Blackhawks called up Scott Darling (0 career NHL games) to serve as backup to Raanta. * Patrick Kane lit the lamp twice in Tuesdays victory, recording just the second multi-goal performance in his last 39 regular-season games overall (also February 3, 2014 at the Kings).

Neal’s hat trick lifts Predators past Chicago 3-2 | The Journal Gazette

The deal was in some ways a success, because two of the three games were sellouts, though Hawks fans still dominated the crowds. Most of Thursday, the Predators official team Twitter had been informing fans about how to get rid of their red outfits for the evening’s game between the two teams. PSA on the red redemption: if it’s attached to someone’s head please don’t try to turn it in. #savethegingers #CHIvsNSH Nashville Predators (@PredsNHL) October 23, 2014 Below is the new campaign to make it harder for Chicago fans to go to Nashville games via email from the Predators: -Game was included in all season-ticket packages, to make sure the Loyal Legion had tickets to the game. -Pre-sale opportunities to season-ticket holders, first access to buy game individual game tickets (this game included) -Single-game buyers in viewing area opportunity to buy game through pre-sale codes -Individual tickets went on sale at Bridgestone Arena only, [so] people in Nashville would have opportunity to buy single game tickets (including this game), first -Following all of the above, tickets went on sale to the general public/outer market. And the promotions! – Free popcorn to any fans wearing gold -Turn in any red item to Fan Information and get a Preds ticket voucher (one voucher per person). Red items will be donated to the Chicago Rescue Mission -Turn in a Hawks sweater and receive a Preds sweatshirt When it comes to the Predators or any NHL team if a building is full, a promotion clearly works. And there actually seemed to be fewer Blackhawks fans at the Thursday game than usual per the iPhone photo from the Preds press box from the start of the contest at the bottom of the page. But in this golden age of the Blackhawks, and Southwest Airlines, good luck in keeping their fans out of any building.

The Canucks scored just 41 seconds into the game off a Blues turnover in the neutral zone. Alexandre Burrows’ wrist shot from the left circle was knocked down by goalie Jake Allen, but Chris Higgins was there to put home the rebound for his second goal of the season. The Blues tied the score with a power-play goal from Kevin Shattenkirk with 12:22 left in the second period after the Canucks were called for too many men on the ice. Nick Bonino put the Canucks ahead to stay with 15:06 remaining in the third period when he scored on an odd-man rush following a save by Miller on the other end. BEARS-CUTLER Cutler says Marshall did not single out anyone LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) – Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler insists receiver Brandon Marshall did not single out him or anyone else during his outburst following the loss to the Miami Dolphins. Cutler says Marshall “didn’t come near me” and did not “say my name.” He adds that the star receiver did not attack anyone personally with “what he was saying.” Cutler’s comments Thursday came on the heels of a 27-14 loss at Soldier Field that raised all sorts of questions about the direction of the team. Reporters standing in the hallway after the game overheard Marshall screaming in the locker room, part of an emotional postgame scene.
