Predators use 3-goal 1st period for 4-2 victory over Coyotes

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Nick Spaling, Mike Fisher and Gabriel Bourque scored first-period goals to lead the Nashville Predators to a 4-2 win over the Phoenix Coyotes on Monday night.

Shea Weber also scored for Nashville, which has won four of five.

Antoine Vermette and Tim Kennedy scored for the Coyotes, who lost their third straight.

Spaling scored the game's first goal at 1:02 of the opening period.

From the right side, Matt Cullen's initial shot was denied by Phoenix goaltender Mike Smith. But skating through the slot, Spaling picked up the rebound and put it over Smith's right shoulder.

Craig Smith also assisted on the goal for Nashville, his ninth of the season.

Fisher doubled the Nashville lead at 8:22 of the first.

Quote of the Day

I watched many times this year the series between the Russians and Canada in 1972, and he was a dominating player there. After I watched the tapes, I respect him a lot more because he turned the series around. He was the guy. In that time, he was the best in the world. It’s a big honor for me to tie him.
