Predators forward Chris Mueller continued his push to make the team as Nashville won its third preseason game Tuesday night, 2-0 against the Washington Capitals at 1st Mariner Arena in Baltimore.
Mueller scored his second goal of the preseason at the 17:31 mark of the second period, and it proved to be the game-winner for the Predators (2-1-0). Forward Niclas Bergfors added two assists, and forward Colin Wilson also notched his second goal of the preseason.
Last season, Mueller was promoted from the Milwaukee Admirals midway through the year and had three assists in 15 games. He’s one of several young forwards competing for a spot on the Predators.
