NASHVILLE, Tenn (AP) - Steve Sullivan scored two goals and the Nashville Predators beat the St. Louis Blues 4-3 on Thursday night to improve to 3-0 for the second time in franchise history.

Marcel Goc and Patric Hornqvist also scored, and rookie Anders Lindback made 32 saves for Nashville, coming off a 3-2 victory in Chicago on Wednesday night.

Matt D'Agostini, T.J. Oshie and Patrik Berglund scored for St. Louis.

Dating to last season, the Predators have beaten the Blues five consecutive times. The Predators also ended the Blues' season-opening winning streak at two games.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Steven Stamkos, Dominic Moore and Paval Kubina scored goals to help Tampa Bay beat Philadelphia in an emotional return for Simon Gagne.

Gagne, a playoff hero last season in the Flyers' run to the Stanley Cup finals, spent the first 10 seasons of his career with Philadelphia before being dealt to Tampa Bay during the summer to clear salary cap space.

Dan Ellis made 24 saves for Tampa Bay.

Nikolay Zherdev and Danny Briere scored for Philadelphia.

OTTAWA (AP) - Mike Fisher scored his second goal of the game on a power play 14:03 into the third and Ottawa recovered for its first victory in four games this season.

Fisher drove a slap shot from the slot past Cam Ward to restore Ottawa's one-goal lead after Carolina scored goals 1:39 apart earlier in the period to tie it at 2.

Milan Michalek also scored for the Senators. Carolina captain Eric Staal assisted on Sergei Samsonov's goal 7:20 into the third before drawing the Hurricanes even with his first of the season at 8:59.
