After a scoreless first period, Danick Paquette opened the scoring for Atlanta early in the second period. Jones tied the score 2:04 later, banging home a feed from Mike Santorelli. Santorelli created a turnover behind the Atlanta net and riffled a pass to Jones out in front for the goal.
The Thrashers re-gained the lead with a shorthanded goal late in the middle frame.

In the shootout, the first three shooters for each side were unable to convert. The fourth Preds shooter was denied on a pad save and then Chad Painchaud won the game with a snap shot high to the glove side.
The two teams will rematch tomorrow afternoon at 11 am, as part of the Our Team Rally festivities at Sommet Center. The game is open to the public and is free to attend.
