NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – The Nashville Predators scored six straight goals beating the St. Louis Blues 6-3 Tuesday night in Nashville.
The game started horribly for the Predators as they watched the Blues race out to a 3-0 lead on two goals in the first and another in the second.
Brad Hunt’s power play blast past Pekka Rinne just 1:49 into the second period had the Preds down 3-0 and in position to fall 1-5 for the month of December.
Minutes later, though, the Preds won a faceoff in the Blues zone and James Neal quickly whipped a wrister right by Jake Allen to get Nashville on the board 3-1. Neal leads Nashville with 12 goals this season.
Still in the second, Filip Forsberg came across the blue line and fired a long shot by Allen to make it 3-2 and giving Forsberg three goals for the season.
In the third, the Predators completely took over scoring four times. Colin Wilson had the puck in front of the net and after he was tripped Ryan Johansen stepped up and fired it in to tie it at 3-3.
Moments later, Wilson led a two-on-one break with Mike Fisher and fed Fisher at the last second for his 6th of the season and the game winner.
Mike Ribeiro added a fifth goal against Allen and Fisher an empty netter for the final goal of the night.
Nashville is back in action Thursday night when Minnesota visits Bridgestone Arena.
