Predators handle Stars with 4-1 victory

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Roman Josi had a goal and an assist to lead the Nashville Predators to a 4-1 victory over the Dallas Stars on Monday night.

Nick Spaling, Shea Weber, and Mike Fisher also scored for Nashville, which has won three of four.

Cody Eakin scored for Dallas, losers of nine of 10.

With Dallas on a power play, Eakin scored the game's first goal at 4:45 of the opening period with a slap shot from the lower part of the right faceoff circle.

It was the only shot to get by Nashville goaltender Carter Hutton, who made 35 saves in the game. He has won his past three starts.

Quote of the Day

It was a different game in the past, that's for sure. It's not exactly what I was expecting but I think the experience paid off for a lot of our guys that realized what it takes in a Game 7. Realistically the effort we put forward, we might not even had to put 60 [minutes], but we just couldn't get a couple bounces to go our way and we just kept pushing.
