On Saturday night, former Washington Capitals grinder Matt Hendricks finally got his first opportunity in the shootout with his new team. He did not score.
Hendy even tried his patented move, the Paralyzer. Unfortunately for him, Steve Mason read the scouting report and made an unbelievable save.
The Nashville Predators did not score in the shootout lost 3-2 to the Philadelphia Flyers thanks to a Vincent Lecavalier goal.
Nashville has still not scored in the shootout this season. They are 0 for 11.
If I were Barry Trotz, I’d still give Hendy another shot or two. As we all can remember, he has a bunch of variations on this move and Mason — while he made the save — still had to desperately kick out his leg to make the save.
