Paul Skrbina Nashville Tennessean
Perhaps the most exciting part of Thursday’s game for Nashville Predators fans was when a spectator threw a catfish on the ice in the waning seconds of the second period.
The Predators were down four at the time in what turned out to be a 5-0 loss to the Boston Bruins at Bridgestone Arena.
The Bruins’ Brad Marchand started the scoring with 17 minutes, 6 seconds remaining in the first period.
Former Predator Craig Smith made it 2-0 with 18:49 left in the second. Patrice Bergeron’s power-play goal made it 3-0 with 11:54 remaining in the second. Another second-period goal, this one from Derek Forbort, pushed the visitors’ lead to four.
Trent Frederic made it 5-0 in the third period.
The loss came on the heels of a 4-2 loss to the Arizona Coyotes on Monday.
The Bruins are 41-8-5. The Predators are 25-21-6.
