10th: Legwand notches penalty shot goals
December 23, 2000 and 2006

On the same date six years apart, David Legwand showed his breakaway prowess and flair for the dramatic with two of the franchise’s five all-time penalty-shot goals. Both went down in the record books, but it was the first one, which came in overtime, that created the most noise.

The first shot came during sudden decision overtime against the New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden. When Legwand bested Blueshirts goaltender Kirk McLean for the 3-2 Predators win, it marked the first time a game had been decided in overtime by a penalty shot in National Hockey League history.

The second one-on-one marker came six years later in front of the Nashville faithful at the Sommet Center in a 7-0 victory of the Los Angeles Kings.  The game was the first in franchise history in which the Predators were awarded two penalty shots in the same game. The Kings’ Dan Cloutier had stopped Paul Kariya on a penalty shot earlier in the contest.
