Philip Tomasino had the two best scoring chances for Nashville in the first. He hit a goal post one minute into the game and lost control of the puck on a breakaway at 13:27 just after leaving the penalty box.

Saros made a big save on Matthews at 14:42 of the first.

Nashville's Matt Duchene hit the goal post with a shot 46 seconds into the second period. During a scramble around Nashville's goal nearly four minutes later, Matthews hit the post and the puck trickled across the line without going in.

Nashville's Thomas Novak hit a goalpost with a backhand shot at 4:49 of the third period.
