NASHVILLE, Tenn. Davon House Jersey . - The Chicago Blackhawks certainly draw plenty of their own fans with them when playing in Nashville. Simply playing the defending Stanley Cup champs definitely brings out the best in the Predators this season. Patric Hornqvist scored the go-ahead goal with 58.2 seconds left and Shea Weber added an empty-netter as the Nashville Predators rallied with five goals in the third period to beat the Blackhawks 7-5 Saturday night in their home finale. The teams combined to score seven goals in a wild and furious final period. Chicago was up 3-2 going into the third, and Nashville finally put the Blackhawks away with the two goals inside the final minute. Nashville, which also scored seven goals while beating Chicago earlier this season, took the season series 4-1 before an arena about half full of Blackhawks fans. "I felt that gave us some motivation to let them come and then go home sad," Nashville coach Barry Trotz said of the latest win. "That was my goal." Hornqvist also had an assist. Craig Smith had a goal and an assist. Paul Gaustad, Ryan Ellis, Matt Cullen and Colin Wilson also scored a goal apiece as 12 of 18 Nashville skaters got at least a point. Ben Smith, Marian Hossa, Matt Carey, Jeremy Morin and Andrew Shaw each scored a goal for Chicago, which finished the season third in the Central Division. The Blackhawks now must wait to see if they are playing either Colorado or St. Louis when the playoffs start. Both teams play Sunday. "Its going to be interesting," Hossa said. "Itll come down to the last game to decide who were going to play." The Predators were eliminated from the post-season for a second straight year with a shootout loss Tuesday night at Dallas, but they now are 8-1-2 over their last 11 games. They certainly didnt quit when they had the chance down 2-0 in the first period or trailing going into the third. "Its obviously a good sign," Weber said. "Theres no quit in this locker room. A lot of character. We knew guys werent going to quit. Its tough to be out of the post-season, but there is still a lot to play for." Nashville scored the first two goals of the third as Cullen scored off a rebound at 4:03 followed by Wilson scoring off a rebound of Webers shot at 7:05. That gave Nashville its first lead of the night at 4-3. It didnt last long as Morin scored 55 seconds later with a helping hand from Nashville defenceman Roman Josi who was trying to poke it away from the post only to knock it over the line tying it up at 4. Gaustad put Nashville up 5-4 with 2:55 left only to see Shaw tie it up yet again with a slap shot with 1:35 remaining. Hornqvist put Nashville ahead to stay when he tipped in a shot by Wilson. With goalie Antti Raanta pulled, Weber sealed the win with his 22nd goal this season. "Obviously, there are four months until the next home game, but I think it was great for our fans to see what we are all about," Hornqvist said. "When we are playing good, we can beat any team in the league and obviously it will give us some confidence for next year too." The Blackhawks faithful did their best to turn this game into a near home game with so much red sitting in the stands, taking advantage of the short flight from Chicago. They turned out even though Chicago was already locked into third in the Central Division, and coach Joel Quenneville scratched defenceman Duncan Keith for a second straight game. Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews remained out with injuries waiting for the playoffs. Hossa did not play after the first period after getting his 30th goal this season, which Quenneville discussed with him Saturday morning. "It was a perfect ending for him," Quenneville said. "He had a nice year for us." NOTES: Nashville finished the season with four straight home wins. ... Hornqvist now has a career-high 52 points this season, and the Swede has 17 points in his last 10 games. Thats the most of any NHL player since March 21. ... Careys goal was the first of his career in his second NHL game. ... Cullens goal was his 600th career NHL point. ... The Blackhawks finish the season 12-3-3 in the second game of back-to-back series. ... Chicago scored five or more goals in an NHL-best 25 games. Kenny Clark Jersey .com) - The Tennessee Titans agreed to terms with running back Jackie Battle on a one-year contract Friday. Reggie White Jersey .C.

Cammalleri has a goal in three straight games and has tallied five times in his past five tilts, but Calgary has still lost 10 of 13 and has dropped four straight. They did manage a point though in Tuesdays 3-2 overtime setback to the San Jose Sharks thanks to a comeback. Calgary was held to just six shots through the first two periods and trailed 2-0, but got third-period goals from Kris Russell and Mike Cammalleri. Reto Berra was also key to the rally and the rookie ended with 32 saves, but was bested on a deflection at the 1:13 mark of overtime. "Were pretty lucky as a coaching staff because were coaching a great bunch of guys," said Calgary head coach Bob Hartley. "Those guys want to do well and most of the time and in many occasions we get the best out of our guys." Berra was making his home debut and fell to 1-2-1 with a 3.23 goals against average and .900 save percentage through the first four starts of his career. He is expected to start again tonight.

However, the Stars did keep the Oilers scoreless on five power-play chances, including 1:31 of 5-on-3 hockey in the second period. "It was a little bit of a see-saw battle where special teams on both teams could have made a bit of a difference," Stars coach Lindy Ruff said. "It seemed like penalty killing prevailed. We could have put the game away later when we had our opportunities and we didnt." Lehtonen is 7-3-2 with a 2.69 GAA in 12 career games versus the Flames, making 28 saves in a 5-1 home victory on Oct. 24.
