 The Nashville Predators returned to Bridgestone Arena and the win column Tuesday night beating San Jose 3-2.

The Predators were keyed by a three goal second period. David Legwand scored the first goal of the game off of a turnover created by Craig Smith. It was Legwand’s seventh goal of the season.

Mattias Ekholm scored the first goal of his career to make it a 2-1 game. Then later in the second period Roman Josi scored the difference maker. For Josi his fourth goal of the season came on the same day he was named to the Swiss Olympic team.

The Preds win came after three straight losses on the road, two of them in overtime.
