Hornqvist scores winner in 3rd to lift Predators to 4-3 win over Panthers

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Patric Hornqvist scored the winner on a power play 5:13 into the third period to lift the Nashville Predators to a 4-3 win over the Florida Panthers on Tuesday night.

Mike Fisher, Shea Weber, and Craig Smith each had a goal and an assist for Nashville, which has won three of four.

Jonathan Juberdeau, Marcel Goc, and Matt Gilroy scored for Florida. The Panthers have lost five of their last six.

With the game tied 2-2 after two periods, Smith and Hornqvist scored early in the third period for the Predators.

Florida goaltender Jacob Markstrom stopped a shot by Gabriel Bourque, but Smith went to the net and was able to fight through traffic and poke the rebound in for his first goal of the season at 1:22.

Less than four minutes later, Hornqvist struck on the power play with a nice individual move from the right side.

Quote of the Day

Not only is it a great idea, but if you don't [start using analytics] you're going to fall behind. You have to be on the cutting edge. It was [Arizona Coyotes assistant general manager] Darcy Regier who said, 'If you didn't invent it, you have to be the second- or third-best copier, because if you're fourth or fifth you've got no chance.'
