NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Dale Weise broke a scoreless tie at 9:14 of the third period and Roberto Luongo made 23 saves for the shutout and the Vancouver Canucks defeated the Nashville Predators 1-0 Friday.

The Canucks have won consecutive games on their 4-game road trip after losing three straight.

Nashville has lost 3 of its past four.

With the game still scoreless in the third period, Maxim Lapierre had the puck behind the Nashville goal line and carried it up to the right circle.

He then spun and sent a shot toward Predators goaltender Pekka Rinne. Rinne kicked the puck away with his right pad, but Weise was there to put away the rebound for his first goal of the season.
