The 2013 Prospects Tournament entered the fifth game with a Nashville Predators and Boston Bruins matchup. The Bruins had a quick start with Seth Griffith scoring the first goal of the game with less than two minutes gone off the clock. Ryan Spooner and Chris Casto picked up assists on what would be a tap-in for the Bruins forward. Nashville responded with 11 shots on goal, but was unable to score due to the Bruins strong defense and strong goaltending by 2012 first round pick (24th overall) Malcolm Subban. 

Going into the second period, both teams continued to play strong defense.  Subban successfully blocked three consecutive Nashville shots towards the middle of the period, but Michael Moffat broke through, scoring off an assist from Josh Shalla, tying up the game 1-1. Tension ran high the rest of the period, with both teams attempting to gain the lead before the final period. Boston played tight defense as Nashville’s aggressive offense attempted another four shots on goal.

Both teams proved to be an even matchup going into the third period. The tie finally broke 11 minutes into the period with a goal by Predator’s center Felix Girard, assisted by Shalla, his second of the game. The Bruins answered with a goal by Alex Fallstrom, assisted by Maxime Villemaire and Justin Florek.  With seconds left, both teams pushed themselves to gain the lead and seal a win, but the buzzer sounded at a tie, 2-2.

The end of regulation led into a 10-player shootout. Predator’s Winger Joonas Rask scored on the team’s fourth shot, bringing Nashville into the lead but the Bruins answered with their fifth and final shot, thanks to Spooner. The shootout also ended in a tie, this at 1-1.
