Nashville Predators 5, Dallas Stars 3: Embarrassing Start, Great Finish

Nashville Predators 5, Dallas Stars 3: Embarrassing Start, Great Finish

The Predators had a crowd of four in the penalty box before a minute of regulation had passed. Ryan Johansen and Calle Jarnkrok were unlikely participants in the fisticuffs that took place.

For the first time since 2009, Fiddler will take the ice as a Nashville Predator. On the other end of the rink, the floundering Vancouver Canucks will be visiting as part of a long road trip out east. Beginning in Nashville, the Canucks will then play in Columbus...
