Nashville found themselves losing in the third period to a damaged Blackhawks lineup. After digging deep and tieing the game in the third, the game was sent to overtime. Roman Josi continues to prove why he is one of the top defenders in the league. He took over for the team in overtime. Josi took the puck hard to the net on his backhand and slid it to his forehand. As a result, he slipped it by to win the game in overtime 3-2 over Chicago.
