by Staff Writer / Anaheim Ducks

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Paul Kariya scored the lone goal in the shootout as the Nashville Predators edged the Anaheim Mighty Ducks 3-2 in a shootout Saturday night.

After all three Anaheim shooters had missed along with Nashville's Steve Sullivan and Marek Zidlicky, Kariya beat Jean-Sebastien Giguere high to the right side to give the Predators the victory.

Yanic Perreault scored a pair of goals for Nashville as goaltender Tomas Vokoun won his 100th career NHL game. Vokoun stopped 33 of the 35 shots he faced.

The Mighty Ducks took a 1-0 lead in the first period when Samuel Pahlsson tapped in a pass that went across the goal mouth from Corey Perry. The Predators tied the game in the second period at the 7:22 mark on the power play on Perreault's goal.

The Predators went ahead 2-1 only 37 seconds in the third period when Perreault tapped in the puck after Steve Sullivan shot it into the crease area.
